About

The Plant a Bloomer range is the creation of designer Rani Deshpande. Prior to establishing her design studio Rani worked in graphics, gift design and publishing. In 2004, she created the invitations for her own wedding, and this inspired her to establish Rani Deshpande Unique Creations, a design service offering contemporary personalised invitations and gifts. For one of her first clients, Rani designed a paper flower embedded with seeds; a memento to give guests at their wedding. Created from a unique seed paper made from recycled materials, when ‘planted’ the flower would break down into the soil — and the seeds germinate to produce seedlings! The plantable flower proved hugely popular and soon became much sought-after as a memorable and environmentally friendly wedding favour.


In 2009 Rani launched ‘Plant a Heart’ for Valentine’s Day, the very first design in the Little Bloomers range. Recommended in numerous publications and shortlisted for eco-friendly Gift of the Year, Little Bloomers were an instant hit and continue to be a best-seller today. In 2012 Rani designed the Woodland Friends greeting cards, which take their inspiration from forest creatures of the British isles and were recommended in Vogue magazine upon their launch.  'Endangered', a range of 8 greeting-gifts, featuring animals in danger of extinction, were were launched in 2019. Marking a whole new concept in greeting cards, these innovative cards come with a needle and thread, and can be embroidered to create a memorable keepsake. Soon after the range was short-listed for the Gift of the Year Award in 3 different categories! Plant a Bloomer's latest release are Weave-Me cards, which are perforated with holes and allow sender or recipient to craft a myriad different designs, based around the motif of a heart, star and Christmas tree.


Rani’s work is inspired by her passion for colour, texture and style. She takes pleasure in working with everyday materials to create unique products that delight and surprise.
