Pleasure in Receiving

02 JUN 2020

Today I want to talk about the role of packaging when ordering and receiving a product and how important it is. You can have a good product but if it is poorly packaged then that will take the shine off receiving it and immediately make it feel less valued than it should be! Presentation is vital and something I’m very interested in. This could be the packaging of my products to the way I present food after cooking! The way something looks really effects the receiving person’s mood and is such a vital piece of the overall feel-good factor of receiving a parcel in the post!

The gorgeous Camellias (is known as Tsubaki in Japanese) originate from eastern and southern Asia, ranging from the Himalayas to Japan and Indonesia. They were grown and developed for centuries before they made it to Europe.

Hydrangea

First discovered in Japan, the name hydrangea comes from the Greek “hydor,” meaning water, and “angos,” meaning jar or vessel. This roughly translates to “water barrel,” referring to the hydrangea’s need for plenty of water and its cup-shaped flower.

Sakura

Sakura is the most popular and famous flower symbol in Japan so much so that there’s even a festival to celebrate its arrival in the spring. Sakura is a symbol of wabi-sabi, an important worldview in Japan relating to the acceptance of transience and imperfection as well as gentleness and kindness.

Native to Asia, the Ranunculus is a perennial that fares heat in cool, dry climates with mild winters. They are also known as “Little Frog”.Probably due to them often being found near water or watery conditions.
