Chinese New Year: Perfect Flowers for Lunar New Year 2022

Chinese New Year, also known as Lunar New Year or Spring Festival, is the most important festival in China and a major event in some other East Asian countries (Lunar New Year is known as Seollal in South Korea, Tet in Vietnam, and Tsagaan Sar in Mongolian). Lunar New Year celebrations are being held more and more in Western cities in recent years too, like Los Angeles, New York, London, Vancouver, and Sydney.

The celebrations traditionally last about two weeks in total, from Chinese New Year’s Eve to the Lantern Festival, held on the 15th day of the lunar year. Regional customs and traditions vary widely but share the same theme: seeing out the old year and welcoming in the luck and prosperity of a new year.

Hanukkah Flowers: JLF Favorites


One of the many beautiful holidays upon us this season is Hanukkah. If you are unfamiliar with the holiday it is also known as the Festival of lights. It’s a Jewish Festival commemorating the recovery of Jerusalem and subsequent rededication of the Second Temple at the beginning of the Maccabean revolt against the Seleucid Empire in the 2nd century BCE. Hanukkah is observed by lighting candles of a candelabrum with nine branches, called the menorah. Hanukkah festivities include singing Hanukkah songs, playing the game dreidel and eating oil based foods. Let us add to your own Hanukkah celebration with some beautiful arrangements dedicated to the holiday. 

A dreidel is a spinning top with four sides, each inscribed with a letter of the Hebrew alphabet. The Hebrew letters inscribed on a dreidel are a Nun, Gimel, Hey or Chai, and Shin. The letters form an acronym for the Hebrew saying Nes Gadol Hayah Sham, which can be translated to “a great miracle happened there,” referring to the miracle which Hanukkah is centered around. Here is our interpretation of the dreidel in flower form to beautify your celebration.
