Get yourself a bouquet of flowers that you never have to water and that will never wilt. Today, we are arranging our very own bouquet with LEGO bricks from the Botanical Collection.
Made from plant-based plastic, this kit was created from sustainably-sourced sugarcane and elements from nature, including trees, leaves and bushes.
You can feel good about making an eco-friendly bouquet that will live in your home forever and that is mindful of the environment. Add them into your favorite vase and these can make for a vibrant statement piece for your office or living room. They also make for great gifts, bringing flowers to friends and family without the worry of watering and maintenance.
Putting together your very own bouquet doesn’t take much skill — only patience and perhaps short nails (long acrylic nails will probably get in the way). The Internet is full of video tutorials for the kit if you prefer to watch someone put it together before you start. The kit comes with 756 pieces in individually-sealed bags with numbers printed at the front. Each flower has illustrated instructions in the booklet that it comes with.
This booklet mentions the story of how the Flower Bouquet came to be: American designer Anderson Grubb used to visit his grandmother’s blossom-filled garden in West Virginia as a child and spent hours reflecting on which flowers might one day translate into a LEGO shape.
Fast-forward to when he became a designer at LEGO, he collaborated with Denmark-based designer, Astrid Sundorf Christensen, and together they finalized the set. In this kit, you can make three cream-colored roses, two pink snapdragons, one lavender-colored lavender, one purple-hued aster, two white with yellow common daisies and one orange California Poppy.
You can choose which flower to begin with and do it at your own pace without getting your hands dirty.
Initially created to help LEGO employees play in a garden of their imagination to assist them into getting back on track after what the booklet calls “a physical or psychological setback,” this set can help any adult or disciplined child pass the time and de-stress.
The box suggests that it is suitable for adults, with it retailing for around SR299 ($79). It is available at LEGO stores throughout the Kingdom. For more information, visit @LegoMiddleEast.
