This is a new mesh, and means that it's a brand new self contained object that usually does not require a specific Expansion pack (although this is possible depending on the type). It may have Recolours hosted on MTS - check below the description for more information.

Hi again!
I never liked much the rose bouquet (the one from the Flower Workbench) in the game. I changed the mesh and made two subsets for the flowers. Now you can have two different colours of roses (and not only roses) in the vase. However, because you cannot have more than two recolourable subsets, the vase will remain the same colour (see pictures).
Each recolour file has two identical textures. So if you want to combine two colours of flowers, you will need at least two different recolour files as well as the file for the new mesh.

You can use both the mesh and the recolours in the game, or you can use the recolours only.
If you do use the mesh, please note that it will replace the original Maxi's rose bouquet.

Please note that you need the Colour Enable Package by Numenor for the files to work. CEP

P.S. I would like to thank IgnorantBliss for the excellent tutorial on how to add subsets which helped me with this mesh.

Hi! This is beautiful work. But I'm confused! ^_^;

If I put this mesh in my Downloads folder, it will overwrite the Maxis one, yes? But instead, I could use just the recolors (without the mesh)? Just making sure.

Thanks for this beautiful work.

So very pretty! Maxis forgets that the girls like to put flowers all around, and their flowers are so disappointing. Wonderful work!
