Chinese New Year marks the start of the Lunar calendar year where homes are filled with decorations, flowers and fruit to promote wealth, longevity, good fortune, and happiness.
If you’re going for a beautiful floral arrangement, remember that gold is one of the colours of choice so a gold pot with red flowers would be a fantastic option. Flowers including orchids symbolising fertility and abundance, peonies for richness and peace, blossoms and narcissus are the best picks.
A fruit basket is also considered an appropriate gift given the meanings of some of the fruits. Oranges symbolise abundance and happiness, pomelos for luck and family unity, grapes for prosperity.
So for a truly magnificent start to the New Year, a combination fruit and flower display would be an impressive start.
