Hi, everyone, it's probably not the time of much floral variety in nature now (at least here in Central Europe...) but I have some plants for your sims here that don't mind the weather at all. I always wanted to make some bouquets that are not so bland as most of the Maxis Base Game flowers but also not such exuberant brummagem looking rather like food than a decorative plant...
The result are the following 6 arrangements, each one including two vase and two plant colors that can be mixed as you like it (see the image to get an idea of the various alternatives!):

The Orchid is combined with a simple exotic leaf in a metal vase. It's probably the most modern arrangement and should not be matched with other golden acessories if your sims aren't a little decadent.
The Pebbles and Leaf arrangement was inspired by Asian lifestyle but fits many different atmospheres. There's a version with wooden box and without included as recolor.
The Magnolia Branch with its big and fragrant blossoms is minmalist and appealing at the same time.

I combined a great Dahlia flower with some fern leaves and then put all that in an extraordinary design vase (thanks for the texture to www.NOVICA.com!).
The Hippeastrum is a nice plant with big blossoms I put together with some fresh green leaves here into a modern glass vase shaped like a star.
Tropical fauna brought the idea for the Palm Leaf arrangement to my mind. Two leaves are a perfect fit for the pretty colorful blossoms in a simple but very decorative bowl.

I hope that you like them! If this is the case I would rejoice about some comments and Thanks :D



A special Thanks to www.NOVICA.com for the vase texture of the Dahlia!
