Five Grams: April Blooms

April represents change for me: in London it is relief from the cold as Spring arrives, in Melbourne it’s the vibrant colours of Autumn and today, the last day of the month, it is my nephew’s birthday, which always makes me feel old!

This year, though, April has been the start of party planning, as I have decided to host a Long Winter Lunch for my 30th birthday in June. As such my Instagram feed is bursting with flowers as I try to gather inspiration.

It’s not just florists that showcase amazing flowers, here are some of the mixed accounts I follow for my floral fix:

My own Instagram feed is also peppered with flora and fauna, my most recent purchase was a gorgeous bunch of eucalyptus for the shower, it gives off such a lovely scent when the water steams:

A bunch of native Australian releases it's beautiful aroma when hung in the shower, amongst the steam.

If you have any suggestions of great Instagram accounts to follow, let me know!



PS. The gorgeous pedestal display in the post header image was taken by photographer Ben Joseph at my wedding. They were styled by The Cracked Pot Florist. You can see more pics of the stunning venue and set up here.
