A flower farm picnic on a road less travelled

 

As we drove along the windy road, off the beaten track, stopping to let wallabies jump across the path and into the grassy hills. We passed by a farm with donkeys and lamas and knew that the day was going to be something made out of a fairytale. 

Arriving at the most glorious flower farm we ever did see and embracing the stunning owner, Jen. We walked over to the most picturesque setting. A low lying table with linen picnic blankets, cushions, umbrellas and decorations that had our eyes in heavenly disbelief and our mouths watering. 

A tribute and thank you to our team members who graciously give so much energy, love, care and nurture to each and everyone in our team. A powerful group of women who hold each other up, who love unconditionally and keep the cogs turning at Daughters of India’s HQ everyday.

We’re not going to lie, there were tears, cuddles, beautiful words and embracement the entire day. After the year that has been, we know that gatherings are a privilege, which made it all the more special. It was a day that we celebrated the successes, triumphs and challenges that 2021 had for us all. 

As we journeyed further into the magic of the flower farm, sipping champagne and snipping flowers, the serenading sweet sounds of Hannah Darling travelled into the wide open spaces and melted our hearts. 

Sitting back down for delicious deserts, our thank you gifts to the team were ‘a little bit special’ celebrating and supporting local artisans and brands that we love. It was a piece of our favourite things gifted to each team member. Including beautiful The Line of Sun necklaces, our favourite natural perfume by Ayu, Wandering Sun Baskets and Linen Social Picnic Blankets.

As the day came to a close, bellies full, hearts fuller and feeling blessed to have these stunning ladies in our world, we couldn’t have been more in awe of Jen’s Seed & Stem Flower Farm, of our Daughters of India team and of what we survived and achieved in 2021.

 

We can’t wait to see what 2022 has in stall for us all,
 Lots of love from Daughters of India Head Quarters x
