Thai floral table arrangement

Hello friends! How is the week treating you all? My week as usual was divided between getting over the weekend relaxation and  planning for the next weekend. My mind has been drifting to our trip which we did around this time last year. We went to the very relaxing, stunning, colorful, green Thailand . Thailand has hot and humid climate which is perfect for many oriental varieties of flowers. 

We stayed at Mandarin oriental. It has every possible nook, corner and table ravishingly,  elegantly decorated with exotic , colorful, vibrant floral arrangements. The concrete bowls with floating lotus were placed in the garden which led to the outdoor pool and restaurant. These pop of colors were so soothing  to the eye and relaxing in the hot weather. It instantly puts you into the state of nirvana !!

 Floral arrangements need not be elaborate,  grand , eye popping all the time. Single stem flower arrangements look equally exquisite and elegant. They blend gorgeously in the setting and rest of the decor. These minimalist arrangement complement the setting well especially when there is limited space or the arrangement need not  be the center of attraction. The color combination of the flower and the vase in first picture which was taken in the outdoor restaurant is soothing. The lovely stem/s are displayed angelic in a clear glass vase. 

I would love to have tea like this every day.. A white plate, banyan leaf cut round, orchid, green tea with lemon and honey in a clear glass.  Divine!!! 

I would really enjoy recreating all these arrangement for my dining table .. That is if I find lotus here and I don't think they look any good with artificial lotus.. So till then I will dream and reminisce !!!!

Flowers everywhere struck me in Thailand, too. And the incredible was that with bags of flowers stacked atop each other.

Lovely. I think South Asia has a beautiful way of natural flower arrangements! These appear so casual, yet striking
