Totally Tropical Makes

Oh my we are just SO loving the huge trend on anything Botanical or Tropical right now.

Not unlike Skinny fit Jeans, Vinyl Records and the singer Howard Jones, Cheese plants have fought their way back from the 80’s and rightfully so I say!

Of course, as ever, there’s a a lovely modern fresh twist and with the power of social media and some rather amazing talents out there, you can pretty much have anything you want in your home (car, office or imagination) made to suit your greenery addiction!

Now if you’re in need of on trend Gift Wrapping we can of course oblige, our ‘Totally Tropical’ Gift Wrapping Subscription box being a big hit with our Wrap Couture’ Club Members this week and if you bob into the More Pretty Things wrapping room next week you’ll find some fabulous New Wrapping Papers and Decorative Touches sure to fit the bill.

For everything else, from monstera leaf baby rattles to cactus slippers there’s Instagram, Pinterest and Etsy as a starting point!

And my oh my they don’t disappoint! (Don’t you just love hashtags…You can find anything!) And, so without any thought to my own risk of having a quick look on Instagram and finding my self in the social media bubble for several hours (you were so worth it) I’ve picked out 3 fabulous ‘right on trend’ creative bloggers/makers for you whom I’m sure like us, you’ll be insta stalking before the days out.

And here they are…For those of you not on insta we’ve also added other details so you can find them but please please do consider joining this amazing imagery platform, it really is fab and so easy to use for newbies.

We’ll be there waiting @moreprettythingsgiftwrapping and @wrapcoutureclub for you to say hello when you do!
