Bringing 60s and 70s flower power funk to Samford Valley, Brisbane!
Sometimes you just need some good vibrations, and that’s what our team of creatives wanted to achieve last weekend at our own Summer Solstice!
It’s a hippie mix of alpacas, flowers, glitter, sunshine and the latest beautiful collection ‘Brown Sugar’ by Tree of Life - ‘a collection made for flowers in your hair and a revolutionary spirit’.
As the sun set, the decade speed up a little to feature some 70s ‘I-Feel-Love’-Donna-Summers’ disco sparkle.
Jess, our photographer, then remarked it was actually ‘Stevie-Nicks-Folk-Nymph-In-The-Woods’, which I think I’ll take too!
The photoshoot was also a little inspired by our excitement at being a vendor at this year’s Woodford Folk Festival. We can’t wait to make lots of dried flower crowns for the festival crowd (like the one below) but, most importantly, we can’t wait to be apart of the magical atmosphere.
I haven’t been to the festival in over 7 years, but it’s always been my favourite place to ring in the New Year! It’s a peaceful place for reflection on the year you’ve had, and also a positive space to look forward and feel excited for the amazing moments next year will bring.
I’ve been travelling and living in different cities for the past four years, it’s been a crazy journey with lots of lessons learnt, but in 2019 I’m staying put and I’m very excited to put my passion into my work and own it entirely.
That’s what I’ll be thinking about during that festival minute silence at 11:59pm this New Year’s Eve.
We at Garden Graffiti are sending you love, peace and also revolutionary dialogue… your words are important as we enter another year in our current political climate.
