Styling The Seasons — July (plus a mini greenhouse from Rose & Grey)

Well, we’re very nearly reaching the close of this month and I’ve only just got around to writing my styling the seasons post.

But hey. I’m consoling myself with the fact that at least I’ve done one this month!! I missed June’s completely!!

I was recently sent a mini greenhouse from the lovely interiors company Rose & Grey and asked to style it as part of their blogger’s styling challenge, so it seems a wise move to combine this with my styling the seasons post for July.

It’s such a sweet little object — almost like a miniature display case in a museum — and just begs to be filled with all sorts of treasures; jewellery, books, shells.

I think, eventually, I’d like to put tiny succulents in it.

I’ve been pinning away and you can get some really beautiful ones. So perfect and dainty.

I was obsessed with tiny, miniature gardens when I was a little girl. I loved our village show, where they had a ‘garden on a plate’ competition.

When I have more time, I will create a gorgeous garden inside this little glass house. But that is most definitely a project for another day.

So, for now,  my very favourite thing to fill it with is fairy lights.

Because until I can get around to buying coloured sand, pebbles and tiny little cacti and succulents, this little greenhouse makes the perfect nightlight.

This mini greenhouse also makes a very good book-end ;)

I was asked to join in with Rose & Grey’s styling challenge and was kindly sent a Mini Greenhouse, to complete my task. You can buy one for yourself — plus lots of other lovely products — from their website. Pop along and have a look www.roseandgrey.co.uk

  1. I love what you’ve done with it! Such a little versatile display case isn’t it? :)
    And I usually put fairy lights in jars around Christmas time but I love this! Might have to start doing it all year round.

  2. I love these things, they’re so cute! And mini succulents are lovely so when you get round to it I can imagine you’ll make it look like a stunning little greenhouse. I love what you’ve done with the lights though, really modern and as you say it will look amazing at Christmas! #HomeEtc

  3. Oh it will look gorgeous with succulents in it, I am going through a real succulent phase at the moment. Fairy lights make everything look beautiful don’t they? I hope everything is ok with you and yours lovely. Thank you for hosting xx

  4. What a lovely vignette you have created here :) I’d love a little greenhouse like this with some succulents in it but all toddler safe spots in the house are already taken so I’ll have to wait until my little cheeky monkey is a bit older ;)

  5. This is so very pretty and YES! Like you I loved mini gardens, I seem to recall it being quite a popular thing for them to make on Blue Peter back in the day :) Gorgeous idea to turn into into a terrarium too X

  6. Loving the mini greenhouse and I think it will look fab with mini succulents in. I love your fairy lights -they’re beautiful!

  7. Ah, that looks really effective! I love the idea of eventually putting succulents in it, though. Do they have to be in pots or can the little greenhouse act like a pot so you can put soil etc in the bottom…Sorry if thats a stupid question, I am rubbish when it comes to gardening but I do love succulents…Even I can keep them alive! #HOMEETC

  8. That greenhouse looks so cute, like you showed and said it can be styled and used so many different ways . I love the lights but also can’t wait to see what else you do with it. #HomeEtc

  9. Love the fairy lights in the greenhouse. Would have loved to do something similar but think I’d be explaining to MOH it wasn’t for tomatoes :D Thanks for hosting #homeetc x
