There was a particularly grey day that was making me feel particularly blah last week. In my attempt to get my sh!it together I had good intentions to make it to yoga class for the first time in months but was embarrassingly late so………I went to Home Depot instead. Makes total sense right? Well thanks to the rows of cheerful plants I stumbled upon, it totally cheered me up! I decided that a cute mini garden would be the perfect pop of cheer for the new kitchen. I love getting some cute new flowers for inside my house, it can really help make a difference when it comes to my mood. And it’s so easy to sort out as well, you can easily order indoor plants like the ones found on sites like Gardeners Dream. So even if you can’t be bothered to go outside, you can just get them delivered straight to your door! Which is pretty perfect really, and like I said having plants inside your house can really help boost your mood and just make you feel a lot happier with your day.
My friend was telling me that my mini kitchen garden inspired their actual garden! They decided to use plastic edging in their garden to give it more of a modern finish though. But I digress.
After I picked out some cute plants I headed to Value Village to find a shallow bowl. I found this perfect dish that saw it’s hay day circa 80’s, early 90’s for $2.99.
I also had this little zebra kicking around from an old project and decided that this would be his new home. He was originally also a thrift store find that I spray painted white. Easy.
I love my new table top garden! It looks perfect in my new kitchen, which you’ll see very shortly. It would also make a great centrepiece or lovely gift as an alternative to a bouquet of flowers.
