BLOOM…

We’re all about natural, but sometimes we let a little faux flow. Be it when your fingers aren’t as green as you’d like, that you need a touch no-maintenance prettiness in a dark corner where nothing will grow, or you want tulips on your desk all year round … faux’s the way to go.

And when you find flowers and plants as realistic as these from Biggie Best … win, win. This latest range of lovely botanicals from olive trees to orchids, pincushions to alliums, bougainvillea to proteas, get our firm nod of approval. You’ll find them online at volpes.co.za

For quiet evenings or slow weekends, a puzzle’s a great way to wind down. We love this Cultivated 1000 piece puzzle, drawn from the stunning debut book by celebrated floral designer, writer, and photographer Christin Geall, which captures her floral style in a rich, detailed puzzle. Hours and hours of blooming gorgeous fun. R363 from Exclusive Books.

How clever is this? For those of us who struggle to construct a perfect arrangement, this Vase Buddy is a silicone, flexible grid, that stretches over the rim of your vase, holding flowers in place. It’s reusable, washable, and fits vases between 12 and 20cm. Buy online for R140 from vasebuddy.com

 

We’re massive Cape Island fans … and although we wouldn’t sniff at any one of the six scented fragrances, our firm favourite, up until now, has been Clifton Beach – think sun-warmed coconut, opulent tolu balsam and a zest of lime. But we’ve just had a heady whiff of the new scent … and it’s completely swept us off our feet. Wild Coast – in its luscious raspberry pink packaging – is all elegant iris, enticing black currant and wild jasmine along with rich praline and patchouli. This newest scent is in the mini and classic medium candle so far – as well as a rather desirable Wild Coast Scented Candle Ornament, which has a mini candle inside and makes for a gorgeous inexpensive gift. R195 to R320.
