Lucky red underwear? Check. Front row seat to the fireworks from your dinner table? Check. Luxe treats for family and friends? Check. Fresh flowers in the home? Uh oh.
A home without fresh flowers is considered highly unlucky, as flowers symbolise rebirth and new growth in the new year. The most highly prized flowers for Chinese New Year include the azalea, peony, water lily and narcissus, but to make it easier for us all, Pacific Petals have created a few stunning arrangements that are delivered directly to your home.
Our personal favourite is Petals of Fortune (HK$2,380), an elegant arrangement of peonies, pussy willow and cymbidium orchids in blue-white porcelain vases that would fit well in modern homes.
Golden Heights (HK$2,280), with its red gladiolus and roses arranged in golden vases, is an ideal gift for anyone with a love for traditional Chinese New Year colours.
We also love the Flowering Teacups (seen in the main image above), a traditional Chinese tea set filled with red roses, ranunculus, celosia and berries. The best part is, the tea set with three tea cups are yours to keep long after the flowers are gone.
Pacific Petals delivers anywhere on Hong Kong Island, Kowloon and the New Territories. To see the entire collection, visit www.pacificpetals.com.
