2013 CNY Floral Arrangements

Spent today making floral arrangements for Chinese New Year. Just using up extra pieces from existing arrangements to try and come up with something new, I find such arrangements more interesting as its not flowers you usually put together.

I started with red cherry blossoms, pussywillow and orange blossom branches to create a wispy arrangement for the sideboard. The red really packs a punch, visually. Then I put all the pink flowers together - pink peach blossoms, lotus and peonies. I added more branches later on that is not captured in this picture.

 A tropical arrangement because we live in the tropics. I love the way it makes your home feel like a resort.

Filled a white vase with bunches of orchids, you can find these really realistic looking plastic orchids in Bangkok and my mom bought bunches of these home over the years. 

I am not sure what flowers these are but it looks really interesting. Made a low arrangement for the coffee table so we can still watch TV.
