Industrial/ Country

Industrial/ Country display at Serenity Nursery
Another display I wish I could say that I whipped together, but being 6 months pregnant the merchandising process was a little slower than usual. I made use of the old wagon shed stone walls as an earthy back drop to our new home wares. Cream industrial stools, FOB Clock and lots of inspirational and quirky signs to make you laugh.

Gummies Sliders available now at Serenity Nursery.
We are loving the new range of Gummies sliders in red/ white polka dot.
 Perfect yard or gardening shoe. Pop into see our new range of leather gardening gloves in new new seasons colours.

Blue, green and all colours inbetween..

So a little trip away to Sydney has inspired me to revamp the gift shop.It's all about colour in your home and blue and green is one of my favourite combinations. 
What things do I love in this shot: The shell inlaid timber stools, the shabby chic hanging pendents, the fluro green and electric blue scarf and the mother in laws tongue plant. Indoor plants are big this season...stay tuned.

Pop in to our shop and you won't miss the brightly coloured owls. Owl cushions, doorstops and plush toys add a whimsical decorative touch to your home.

Freshly Picked:

Autumn is the perfect time to plant lemon trees or any citrus for that matter.
Grow cumquat's in pots for a Mediterranean feel or a lime tree along a fence for an edible screen.
It's no secret that I love dogs and while hunting the web I was delighted to stumble
 across these words of advise.


 Yellow roses, sunflowers and a lemon as a place card makes a pretty table setting. Use any type of fruit that is in season, your guest can take it home as a healthy snack!

A yellow feature wall is a dramatic backdrop to this climbing wisteria plant. Use paint in the garden to quickly and cheaply transform a space. Paint the side of an old shed, a fence or an old chair to introduce a new colour to a dull spot.

Plant tulips now and all Spring flowering bulbs. Love the yellow industrial stools? We have them in baby blue and cream @ Serenity Nursery now.

Hello Yellow!

So we have been on trend watch this week with a trip interstate and we have discovered
 a whole lot of colour.
There is no right or wrong colour combo. Be brave and mix things up.
...Pink teamed with yellow
Fluros with naturals...

We found yellow was a standout colour as was emerald green.
 Stay tuned to our new shop displays for a brightly coloured surprise.

Project with Pots..& faux plants...

So I've got the day off and finally have a few minutes up my sleeve to create this little project. I love indoor plants, and there are many available that are suited to low light conditions but this time I want to use artificial succulents in an arrangement. The style of pots are endless at Serenity Nursery from modern shiny ones to rustic metal. I have chosen heavy paper mache pots. I decided to group a cluster of artificial succulents for a natural/ earthy look.
I have used oasis to help hold the plants in place. there are two main types of oasis. The silver gritty foam type which is used in artificial arrangements ( see pic here)  and the green soft foam that holds water and living plants in place.

I have simply cut the oasis to fit snug into the pot and then begin to push the succulents into place. It's nice to combine different plant textures like the broad leaf and spiky type.

It comes together very quickly.

I love this faux greenery available in the gift shop. It's so handy for so many projects. I cut it up and push it in between the succulents to help hide the oasis. It looks real and natural.

I'm tucking the fine greenery in here. No need to glue down as it has wire fibres in it that help wrap it around the secure plants.

I love the finished pot displays. Great for those " Hard to Grow" spots in the house.

The display makes a cute little addition to my kitchen, well i think so.
