03 Apr Camellia

20150403-chanel0320150403-chanel0420150403-chanel02Happy Easter everyone. Raincouver is back on Good Friday and I just need to brighten my day with these red Camellia flowers found in my garden. Simple DIY arrangement inspired by Chanel which doesn’t cost me a penny yet chic looking. Camellia is Coco Chanel’s favourite flower – signature icon and true spirit to Chanel’s design.

I put a small vase in the paper bag, you can do with a plastic container as long as it’s water proof. Arrange your stems nicely around the bag, or tie them up as mini bouquet and let it sit casually in the container/bag.  Fun and eco-friendly to recycle what you already have in your closet and garden.

“The seeming simplicity of a masterpiece is sure proof of it’s grace”. by Gabrielle Coco Chanel.

The perfect petals and geometrical roundness of Camellia – simple yet sophisticated that I don’t want to disturb its beauty with any other florals.
