Frangipani Decor

It will be a week now that we moved into a serviced apartment. It is pretty neat.. I really like the design and decor of this apartment..and the view of the Hong Kong harbour is  breathtaking!! I will give a tour of this place before we move into our own pad.. 

There are two parks near by .. one is Pacific place garden(small garden) and other is the Hong Kong park.. So baby and I go for walks and strolls there.. There are lots of frangipani trees here and I love to collect them..

 Frangipani or Plumeria flowers are very delicate and perfect for summer decor. They don't last for long although..Enjoy them while they last..their amazing aroma and the tropical feel to it.. The best way to decorate them is to float them in a bowl of water or dip them in water in shallow bowl/vase  like I did. I put them in this shallow bowl..actually it is a ashtray but we both don't smoke so we don't need it and I think it makes a pretty good vase!!!!

After bringing them home put them in water right away or in the refrigerator or put them in a wet cloth napkin and fold it from all sides. They will last longer if it is cooler in the if you are doing a decor piece with frangipani flowers for the evening then it is better to put the Aircon on.

So you can see that the number of flowers in my little vase are increasing after each day's walk:) Now it is overflowing..

So I kept some in other vases..Soon I think all the empty vases and pots will be filled with flowers picked from strolls:) Such small things also help me personalize this temporary accommodation and helps us to make it feel at-home!!!!!

Have a lovely weekend!!!

Hi Purnima,

Google Alerts led me to your blog - my blog is called 'Frangipani Decor'. Your flowers look so pretty and I hope you have lots of them in your home. In India the monsoons have arrived and our frangipani tree will stop blooming soon. Can't wait for the next flowering season!

Enjoy your new space and looking forward to seeing pictures of your home.

Frangipani is one of my fav too and I just love it's sweet smell. We have plenty of white and pink ones in the gardens here, collect them whenever we visit them, bring them to home, put them in an old small brass vase.
