Getting back to nature with Modern Terrarium Studio

Getting back to nature with Modern Terrarium Studio

Last week The Raleigh Blog Society and triFABB collaborated for a wonderful new blogger meetup, hosted by Ramble Supply Company located in downtown Raleigh, NC.  Ramble Supply Company is a home and lifestyle boutique supporting artists and makers with an eye for quality crafted goods and design made in small batches.  The store offers a range of gorgeous gifts such as beautiful hand-made jewelry and textiles, as well as locally made soaps and treats.  I also love that the store offers DIY classes and events to connect the local community, and the ability to meet the maker.

Jessie Conner, owner of Ramble Supply Company also showed us the beautiful patio which can be rented for events.

Megan George Co-Owner and Creative Director of The ZEN Succulent provided a hands on succulent terrarium workshop to promote her new book Modern Terrarium Studio.  As Megan told her story about how she grew up locally and became interested in plants because of her upbringing it brought back fond memories of my childhood when I used to spend most of time helping my grandparents in their garden.  Oh how I miss the days of being close to nature and having direct access to the fruits of the earth.

Lately the hustle and bustle of daily life has taken me away from nature lately so this was refreshing change in my routine.  I was excited about getting my hands dirty.  Learning how to create and take care of a terrarium was amazing.  Megan not only explained things but her book steps you through all of the details of the process.   I was surprised at how easy it was to create and will be to maintain.

I learned charcoal is an important element in a terrarium because it helps remove toxins and odors

Meeting Megan was such a pleasure. Here we are after the project, and I’m happily holding my beautiful terrarium.

My completed terrarium turned out beautifully and would look great with any decor

This was one of the most exciting event’s I’ve attended this year.  I can’t wait to start building my next fabulous succulent creation!

  1. I found this post to be very inspirational! When I’m in nature, I’m either relaxing in it, working in it, or photographing it. I would never have thought of a creative way to bring nature inside, like a terrarium. That sounds like a good idea for a future project. Thanks for sharing!

  2. Thanks for your feedback! I’m so glad you enjoyed it. When you get around to completing your terrarium, please share the final project. I would love to see it! 🙂
