So I decided to brave the crowds with my colleague when she suggested that we head down to the Thomson nursery area to stock up on fresh flowers for the festive season. I felt like I was cheating on my usual florist but I really wanted to check out the different options available at the nursery.
It was such a nightmare getting there from work. Traffic was slow-moving and cabs were hardly in sight. When we arrived there, we had to jostle with the crowds to grab the flowers. I felt like an ‘oba-san’ (auntie) in a glorified floral market. After an hour of mulling over the choices, I went home with S$60+ worth of flowers. Actually, they cost more because my cab-fare there and back cost a bomb.
Spent an hour arranging the florals and was pretty pleased that the huge bouquets of flowers that I brought back actually yielded 4 separate arrangements for the loft.
Dressed my living room with these fuschia blooms:
Dyed Pink Chrysanthemum Pom Poms | White Sweet William | Dianthus Barbatus | Monstera Leaf
For my bedroom, I put together these blossoms for my bedside table:
Hyancinthus | Sweet William | Dianthus Barabatus | Monstera Leaf
And since I had additional flowers left, I put together this simple arrangement for my wardrobe area.
