The thirteenth star sign
We're nearly there!
We went ahead and ordered a small stock of brass Ophiuchus Constellations. This means that when you order an Ophiuchus, there's no waiting involved: We'll ship immediately and you can start arranging flowers right away.
The only difference to the final product is the package it comes in.
This time we're not actually crowdfunding for the product itself, but for its casing. In order to be able to sell the Ophiuchus Constellation in stores, we need proper and beautiful packaging, and that's what we're saving up for with this 'pre-sale'.
With your support we're confident we can get Ophiuchus ready for stores around the world this fall.
What you can do
Order Ophiuchus now!
You'll be the very first receiving our XL Flower Constellation, and with that our eternal gratitute for your help getting the Ophiuchus ready for a successful international launch.
And that's not all! To celebrate the launch of this new Flower Constellation XL, we have a very special deal: instead of the regular €29,95, we're launching the Ophiuchus on our webshop for €25,-!
Plus, because we love wildflowers and happy bees, we'll also add a package of Bee Happy Wildflowerseeds to your order free of charge (EU only).
Other things that would make us very happy
Not ready to order but excited to help? Great!
It would be of enormous value for us if you could help us get our new Ophiuchus Constellation known to the world: Spread the word!
Tell your friends and family: finally a solution to use large vases (for example those from that fresh flower service) to set up luxurious arrangements without spending a small fortune at the florists'.
Together with Masha Bakker Photography we took gorgeous photographs of the Ophiuchus, and with the correct credits (@mashabakkerphotography @houseofthol) and a hashtag (#ophiuchus #flowerconstellations) we'd love it if you share them on social media.
Got other great ideas about how you can help? Looking to collaborate?
Get in touch! We'd love to chat.
For mothers who love to let flowers bloom
Mothersday is around the corner!
Does your mother like flowers?
Gift her a Flower Constellation this weekend so she can create stunning floral masterpieces every time while saving on flowers.
Because we are huge fans of mothers in general, (and ours in particular), we designed special Mother-celebrating Bee Happy Growing cards for Mothersday.
With these cards, you're not only sending your mom a sweet message, you're also giving her a delayed bouquet of flowers.
The cards have been printed on Growing paper: 240gr recycled paper that contains wildflower seeds.
To germinate the seeds, lay the paper in moist soil, place in a sunny spot, cover with a thin layer of earth and keep moist.
Depending on the kind of seed in the paper, you'll see the first tiny green leaves pop out of the earth after about ten days.
With your order of a Flower Constellation or Waterworks-set in our webshop, you can add a Mothersday card for free!
Which one is your favorite?
Here's how it works
Here's what you do: choose the Flower Constellation (or Waterworks-set and Mothersday card you'd like to order, and fill out discountcode: 'Moederdag19' at check-out.
The €3,- for the card will be deducted from the total automagically.
Please note: take delivery times into account when placing your order.
Want to dave time and have your present sent directly to your mothers' address?
We can do that! Simply fill out the correct address at check out.
We can even write your mothersday-card for you. Let us know what should be on the card (max 5 lines) and we'll make sure to write down your message as neatly as we can.

We asked, you answered
Last week we asked what you thought should be the new Dutch Master Wrapping paper (remember?).
Thank you for your lovely response!
I'd love to say it was a tight race, but Amrosius Bosschaert won by a mile. Only a few respondees preferred the Dutch classic by van Gogh.
A few examples of your reactions:
"Although the blue and yellow of Vincent are eye catching, the painting by Ambrosius suits better with the previous one. Like winter and spring or something... :)"
"Best colors. But the half half version is great too!"
"Less well known and a fresher over-all feeling"
