One of my earliest formed habits of “self care” was buying myself flowers. Simply put — flowers make me happy. They make my heart smile and give life to any room. In fact, I don't know anyone who would say that flowers aren't uplifting?

Banabox is my new self-treat (and I have major plans to gift this experience to all my loved ones)! Banabox delivers the art of Japanese flower arranging to your door! Each month, thanks to our Banabox subscription, we receive fresh, seasonal blooms delivered to our door with everything we need to make our own Japanese flower arrangement! (instructions included, happiness guaranteed).

Your first order includes everything you will need to become an overnight ikebana master (at least that's how it made us feel, and we are sticking with the story). The free starter kit comes with a vase of choice, ikebana clippers, and a kenzan.

WHAT IS IKEBANA?

ikebana is the Japanese art of flower arranging. The word stems from the Japanese words ikeru, which means 'to arrange' and hana, which means 'flowers.' You may also hear it referred to as kado, which roughly translates to 'the way of the flower.'

PHILOSOPHY

Ikebana combines nature with a human touch. The intent is to enhance nature by arranging and manipulating the materials. Ikebana often emphasizes the bend of a branch or the curve of a leaf, which allows the practitioner to discover new aspects of a plant. There is great emphasis placed on the intention behind each stem in an arrangement, with the goal being to use each stem to maximum effect.

Prior to founding WE THE BIRDS, her professional experience was in accounting/finance. After being diagnosed with Celiac Disease, she fell in love with French macarons (because they are a naturally, gluten-free dessert). She spent several years mastering the delicate art of making macarons and developing her own unique recipe. Natalie fancies herself more of a "foodie", than a baker. Nonetheless, she is the founder and creator of WE THE BIRDS | Macarons recipe and is known for creating innovative flavor profiles. In her role as Macaron Director, she leads the our team of talented bakers.
