TPP Holiday Wreath Workshop Sun. 12/4 + Sun. 12/11!!!

I am very excited to announce that The Plant Provocateur will be holding 2 Holiday Wreath Workshops.  I've split the experience into smaller, more intimate workshop sessions.  Limit is 4 people per session.  So here's the deal...I will be teaching you how to create a holiday wreath that is beyond ordinary; that is something more extraordinary using unique plant material that is not your everyday pine branch or dried twig.  I want to open your eyes up to a world of creative possibilities that go outside of the usual holiday box. 

The workshop is $150 per person.  This includes instruction, wreath materials, and premium plant materials (which are the bulk of the workshop fee cost.  You'll be using the GOOD stuff!)  Each participant will leave with their very own extraordinary wreath.  Participants get to choose between making a table wreath centerpiece wreath or a hanging wreath.  I will share my secrets about which materials I have found make for a longer lasting wreath, as well as which materials dry beautifully. 

The workshops will be held on Sunday, Dec. 4th and Sunday, Dec. 11th from 11am-2pm.  No previous experience is needed.  The workshop will take place at The Plant Provocateur Shop on the patio.  Please note this is a hands-on workshop, if you have garden shears and/or gloves, feel free to bring them.  Additional materials will be provided.  Again, each session is limited to 4 people.  Reservation purchase is required to attend.  Tickets are available through the 'SHOP' menu of this website or via the following link: WORKSHOP RESERVATIONS.  The Plant Provocateur is located at 3318 W.

The Future Flora Initiative - Ranunculus

When people come into the shop they always ask me, when it's on display, what flower is that?  I tell them "it's a Ranunculus."  They usually respond with "Ranuncul-what?"  Well, here we have the perfect candidate to kick off The Future Flora Initiative series.  This series is going to introduce you to and get you to know the flowers that beautify our world and many Plant Provocateur cut flower bouquets. 

Ranunculus asiaticus, its botanical name, is commonly referred to as the Persian Buttercup.  To me, these flowers represent a richness in beauty.  They grow natively in the Mediterranean, S.E. Europe, S.W. Asia, and N.E. Africa.  These plants grow from a tuberous bulb.  Some produce simply elegant single petaled flowers and others lustrous whirlpools of petals in sumptuous colour. They're primarily abundant in early spring through early summer.

Found in the center of their flowers is a mystically regal crown of stamens and pistils.  In some cases, the contrast of their centers makes the flowers even more sublime.

The Victorian meaning of Ranunculus is 'You are rich in attractions'.  There is also a legend that claims that a shy, handsome Persian prince suffering from unrequited love died of a broken heart and turned into a giant Ranunculus flower showing all of the beauty and love he had inside of him.  How romantic is that?! 

I love having Ranunculus around.  They make the world so frickin' beautiful!  The multi-petaled varieties remind me of beautifully frosted confections.  They look good enough to eat, BUT, one important thing about Ranunculus is that they are poisonous to pets, so mind your loved ones when you have them around.  Respect Ranunculus and in return they will make you feel rich in luxurious beauty!

Now, when you get yourself some stylish Ranunculus, I suggest, if they haven't had their stems recently trimmed to do so.  1/2" off the bottom of stem is good.  When placing stems for display in a vase, I recommend dropping a single copper penny into your water.  For some reason, I find that Ranunculus love copper.  It seems to extend their vase life, usually makes them stand bolt upright, bust out of their tightly wound buds, and bloom their hearts out giving you a bounty of beauty!

The Plant Provocateur's New Feature - Future Flora Initiative

IMG_5790.jpg

I want to introduce you to a new feature by The Plant Provocateur called The Future Flora Initiative.  I've been using the #futureflorainitiative for a while now.  What does it mean?  Well to me, your Plant Provocateur, it means sharing a new perspective on plants and flowers that I feel deserve some much needed attention.  We tend to take things for granted or just consider them generic/non-specific when we don't look deeper.  If we don't change that way of thinking, what is precious to us will be gone.  I don't know about you, but plants and flowers make me feel so good.  They make me feel 'up' and positive.  They calm me when I'm anxious or in a bad mood.  Their presence also creates a sense of intimate connection to the environment they're in or with people, be it family, friends, or those I love.  It may sound cheesy, but their existence in my life makes me really happy.  They're a great antidote for all the craziness in this world. 

Hypericum Celosia Fern Image.png

Looking to the future of plants and flowers,  I want to immerse you into this world of beautiful things.  I want to share my experience with you firsthand.  I want to give you a reason to get as excited as I do about something and tell everyone you know or keep it as something of your very own.  So, I'm going to feature plants and flowers I use in my work.  People like to ask..."what's that called?", "Is it real?",  or remark "I've never seen that before."  I figure some of you might be interested in knowing what's on my radar and what you can expect from The Plant Provocateur.  So, from time to time check out the blog and see what's becoming part of the Future Flora Initiative.

Happy New Year Everyone!  So, setting things in motion at The Plant Provocateur for 2016.  I did a little thinking over the holidays and this came to mind...What kind of plant/flower/garden workshops would you, friends of TPP, be interested in attending at The Plant Provocateur on the patio this year?  What would be interesting?  I already have a few things planned but thought it would be cool to hear from you to see what else inquiring minds want to know.  If there's anything I've offered in the past that you'd like offered again, let me know.  In the meantime, I'm interested in knowing what would excite and delight you enough to attend a workshop or two or three.  Operators are standing by.

Continuing with the aromatherapy vibe I've got the fine wine of Palo Santo cone incense by Persephenie.  Seriously, people have been raving about the sophisticated scent these Santos cones burn!  Also featured at The Plant Provocateur are these design award winning misting essential oil diffusers.  You fill with water, add drops of your favorite essential oil or blend, and the diffuser beautifully emits a mist of olfactory delight.  Diffuser controls let you run them for 8 hours, at 20 minute on/off intervals, or until the water reservoir is empty, at which point the device automatically shuts off.  Also featured on the list are amazing essential oil blends known as The Upper, The Downer, and The Way Down.  Found within are fragrances ranging from Cedarwood, Lavender, Eucalyptus, Peppermint, Bergamot, Clary Sage, and Vetiver to name a few.  Each blend's scent will transport you to distance shores and restore you with a sense of blissful relaxation. Lastly, for some simple aroma diffusion, the Japanese hinoki pine wood diffuser by Hinoco is a beautiful design choice.  Just place drops of oil on top of the diffuser, let them soak in, and the diffuser disperses the scent organically.  Added design feature... The Hinoco diffusers are outfitted with a hollow compartment for storing your essential oil bottles that are sized to fit.  

So, that list, along with many other great gift ideas are currently in stock at The Plant Provocateur shop Silver Lake.  Shop hours are T-Sat 11-6 and Sunday 12-5.  Holiday hours are Thurs. 12/24 11-2.
