January provides such a sweet sense of hope and promise; a time to reflect, reset and to recast our intentions and make things happen. It is a time to think about what matters most in our lives and how we can weave this into our day to day in order to obtain our best life. This year- and in the years to come- the Danish concept of Hygge [hoo ga] is one we will strive to accomplish. Hygge embodies what we all believe in at Bloomfields, which is to create coziness and comfortable conviviality that brings a sense of well being.
1. The art of building sanctuary and community, of inviting closeness and paying attention to what makes us feel open-hearted and alive
2. To create happiness, connection, and warmth
3. A feeling of belonging to the moment and to each other
4. Celebrating the everyday
5. Mindfulness and care in all we choose to be a part of.
There are many ways to bring more hygge into our lives and this year we look forward to sharing many with you. Here is a couple to start...
Bringing the outdoors inside is very hygge. A simple way to achieve this is to introduce some plants into your living space. Visit and select a special plant to add warmth to your own home. A new shipment has just arrived and there are plenty of great options to choose from.
Flowers also bring the outdoors inside. Did you know that you can arrange to have a monthly flower subscription at Bloomfields? Imagine receiving, or giving, a beautiful box of seasonal blooms and accents every month. We also offer free delivery (Monday-Friday) of your subscription for our BFF members. Picture beautiful flowers in various rooms in your home and how that would make everyone feel. Subscriptions may be ordered online or in person at both the flower shops.
Wishing you and yours much happiness, health, and hygge in 2019.
All good things,
Virginia, James, and your incredible Bloomfields team
