Make flowers not war

My heart goes out to all of those affected by the war in Ukraine. I'm sure you all share that feeling of hopelessness and how incredibly lucky we are to live in peace the UK, so along with my fellow flowery friends, we've decided to make a traditional Ukrainian Vinok or flower crown... or at least inspired by like my creation is!! - to raise money for those that are in desperate need.

And here it is - my Vinok was inspired by the traditional values of reusing what Mother nature provides - so a mix of fresh and dried materials, in the colours of the Ukrainian flag, beautifully captured by Olivier Yoan.

It was such a joy to make!
 

Please, if you can support this worthwhile charity, here's the link below.

As a special thank you to all those that donate, we'll be sending you a link to learn how to make your very own flower crown - just email us at Thrive hq once you've donated and we'll be in touch!
Thank you so much
