Build Your Own Mini Garden Terrarium Giveaway!

February 23, 2015

Back in 1984, plant terrariums were all the rage. My mom loved her trendy, stylish 80’s décor and because of that our family home was littered with them!

Then the 90’s hit and the love for mini indoor gardens expired. Terrariums, like avocado green appliances, were out… And homes became stark and stuffy.

But it’s 2015 and the glassy forest is BACK!

From Home & Garden Shows to Home Décor Magazines, they all agree… It’s time to get a little green in your life. And this February 26th to March 1st, one of the most exciting features at the Calgary Home & Garden Show will be workshops on how to build your own indoor mini garden terrarium!

Earlier this week, I stopped by Blue Grass Nursery to find out more about this incredibly easy way to liven up your home and even had a chance to get dirt under my nails and build one myself!



I have now become my mother, and each room in my home is adorned with one of these beautiful O² enhanncers!

  1. As a child of the 90’s I am not sure, but I do love some big hair and definitely want to add a terrarium to my home decor!

  2. I would have to say favorite 80’s fad was Hyper-Color shirts. It didn’t take long for people to figure out your armpits were the first thing to change, the whole neighbourhood could see you were sweating! Hahaha!!!

Looking forward to reading your comments!
