Caring and Sharing
- Being less Wasteful
- We offer a Bespoke Design Service
Here at PPP apart from providing new designs for 2020 shown in the photos, we’ve been thinking of ways to, albeit in a small way, reuse, recycle and cut waste. Our New Year’s Resolution is Being Less Wasteful in everything we do. The wise old owl in the photograph which gets moved from desk to desk, depending on whether we’re painting, decoupaging or packing, reminds us to RRR – Reduce, Recycle, Reuse.
Did you know we offer a bespoke service?
If you love handcrafted items but would like it to reflect your individual requirements or are looking for plant pots and keepsake boxes that will complement and enhance a specific colour scheme or design, then please let us know. Or, if you already know what you want, review the range of designs on our website, choosing the ones you like and tell us the sizes and quantities. Designs can be created and reviewed by you before the work begins on the final piece(s).
The Choice is Yours
For example: A customer asked if we could provide a special birthday gift for her friend who loved elephants. Another wanted a special size and matching wooden box. This is what she chose from our designer’s suggestions – a unique and personalised finish. the combination of designs you want is yours. A prospective customer wanted pots to blend with a wallpaper – this is what was chosen from a selection of 4 ideas.
How Does This Service Work?
We really enjoy doing these commissions. If you would like us to paint and personalise to your own taste and decor, please email firstname.lastname@example.org to discuss your requirements. We will be more than happy to create something unique to you. Send us an e-mail with images, your ideas, a favourite colour, or theme. We will then be in touch with any questions and to discuss your requirements in full. There will be up to a maximum of 4 suggestions for your designs before the work begins on the final pieces. The choice of the combination of ideas is yours.We will then send you a final quote by e-mail.
Caring for your pots
All pots and saucers are hand painted and/or decoupaged in our workshop and in the garden when the weather is good! They do need some loving care, so each pot is sealed and varnished so that they can be used for both interior and exterior use. Made with love, the artisan handcrafting makes every pot unique and one of a kind, no two will ever be exactly the same. They can be hand-washed and/or wipe cleaned.
If you’re planning on buying a plant which has a plastic container – you could carry on using it. We suggest leaving plants in these containers. It will make watering the plant much easier and keep the decorative finish of the pot lasting much longer.
You may not be aware that our re-useable terracotta pots and saucers are sourced from Europe, mainly France, Spain and Italy. All our pots, saucers and wooden boxes are made to order – only our original design is photographed and then kept and offered at our twice a year sales.
Flower of the month
The birth flower for the month of January is the carnation although the snowdrop is listed as an alternative. The carnation represents love.
Birthstone of the month
The birthstone for January babies is the garnet. The name is derived from the Latin “granatum” meaning “pomegranate” because the crystals resemble the fruit’s red colour and seed-like form.
Best wishes from the PPP Team.
