What's New — Lunar New Year
Happy Lunar New Year! Did you know that the Lunar New Year is celebrated by a quarter of the world's population? It's fun to see local flower markets bulging with quince and other flowering branches. To get into the spirit, our entry (above) has an urn of Magnolia blossoms. Even Costco features kumquats and money trees, pots of orchids and lucky bamboo. Our next door neighbor has huge red lanterns and ropes of faux firecrackers hanging on each side of his front doors - it looks as festive as can be. This got me thinking, why not take some inspiration from traditional Lunar New Year decorations to use in our rooms year round? Let's take a look.
