The magic of flowers

What do we say about flowers? They are a visual delight pleasing us with  a plethora of colours, form and their fragrance.Recently we had a prayer ritual (pooja) at  home which required more than 6 kgs of various flowers.

 After the pooja, since these flowers were offerings to God, one could only re-use them to decorate corners and spaces at home and I often say that Bangalore weather is a blessing in such situations. Flowers stayed fresh for more than 20 days when refrigerated! And the last of the lot still floats pretty in my uruli even today!

Let me share some of the various arrangements I created with these flowers. Enjoy the post and let me know how you find these.


At the entryway...

Garlands of the yellow marigold, significant for their auspiciousness adorned the entrance to my home.


When you have variety you can decorate as you please!


The tradtional yellow- olive wall at my place is where all the action happens, so how can that be devoid of flowers?




Arrangement on the ground...


Another corner, another arrangement...This is also my favourite reading corner... converted all planters, uruli, trays and thaalis into floral platter! And that gave me huge satisfaction. To see these bloomed beauties day in and day out...



On the day of the pooja, we had lotuses too, and  I so regret not having clicked a pic of the same.They occupied pride of place on this beautiful peacock platter! And the lotuses & the peacock complemented each other so well!



Our pooja thaalis had different arrangement each day.Just sprinkled water and they remained fresh!



Rajnigandha, plumeria and rose...


On the side table...




Yet another!


How about decorating florals with some brass beauties?The bull for company...




Ganesha...






Some plant, grasshopper, birds accompanying the lotus...



 Rajnigandha and rose petals... as the last of the flowers make their appearance.


Among the greens too...



And as they dried,  I collected them all together and now trying to convert them into compost.
I had real fun, daily sorting these flowers, arranging and decorating my space with them.

December is a month of celebration. Also, as we now bid goodbye to this wonderful year and look forward to a new beginning, I have a home tour lined up for you. The last for this year, so please do not miss it!
See you all real soon. Till then, start thinking  about making a new year resolution!
