Part of my job as Editor of HGTV Home Studio is inspiring our editors and designers with a wall installation on the Digital floor of the swank building we work in. This can mean anything from hanging enormous gold piñatas from the ceiling to this season’s installation: All About Landscaping. For this display I worked with our Co-Op interns to create on over-sized “pinboard” of sorts. I then accented the lush imagery with fun details, such as hanging terrariums stuffed with mini succulents and air plants:
A pair of high gloss purple garden tools (spray painted by yours truly):
Two iPads so you can try out some of our awesome new apps:
And goody baskets filled with burlap sacks containing seed packets of Purple Coneflower, which is native to the area. Each sack is accented with a chalkboard-painted plant marker. Pretty cute, right?
If you’d like to make these at home, it couldn’t be easier. Buy plain wood plant markers and give them about 3 good coats of chalkboard spray paint. Then pick up a “wet erase” chalk marker, and write your plants name in your neatest handwriting. These little giveaways would be great wedding favors for a rustic spring wedding, don’t you think?
So tell me, as we “spring forward” this weekend, what are your gardening plans?
