Did you listen to the amazing Katie Davis of Ponderosa & Thyme talk about her entreprenurial journey as an artist, florist and now educator who teaches other creative the art of creative process using florals, nature and plant materials? Katie is incredibiloty talented and certainly knows her plants and florals. She is able to create complex installations and bouques with such simplicity and easy and the best part, she even teaches creatives and non-artists on how to do the same.

In case you missed Katie’s inspiring interview you can listen to it here.

Katie even holds weekly flower meditations live on her Instagram which are very theraputic and facinating to follow.

We were so inspired by Katie and her love of florals and nature. The wonderful Bre Pflederer, a florist, created a beautiful DIY forest themed installation with just foraged branches and budding spring blooms. Often times as creatives and entreprenurs we tend to limit ourslevs with only what is available in front of us or to a lack of tools to solve our problems. But as Bre shows us, we can truly make something beautiful with just what we have around us – simplicity and ingenuity always trumps complexity.DIY Decorating with foraged spring blooms by CulturallyOursOur challenge to ourselves was to be limited in what resources we could invest in, what we had access to and what we could create given those limitations. Bre showed up with a pair of clippers, buckets and buckets of floraged greens from the local park and we got to work.DIY Decorating with foraged spring blooms by CulturallyOursWe started clean slate with a blank canvas. In most cases, entrepreneurs are the same way, have nothing but a dream the first day they get to work. Building layer by layer, branch by branch, Bre slowly created a masterpiece. A little jungle oasis in the middle of the room. An installation unlike any we had seen – with loose boundries and lots of room to grow should we want to add to it at a later stage. Are you seeing business parallels here too?DIY Decorating with foraged spring blooms by CulturallyOursDIY Decorating with foraged spring blooms by CulturallyOursDIY Decorating with foraged spring blooms by CulturallyOursThank you Bre for showing us all the amazing things one can accomplish with what we already have, a little creativity and an open mind. Like Katie Davis said, creativity is important skill to have for entreprenurs no matter what industry you are in.

How do you channel creativity and ingenuity in your business? We would love to know. In the meanwhile, go out and forage some blooming branches and see what you can create with what nature provides in abundance already – a perfect way to decorate your home with spring blooms.
