Merry Christmas and Happy New Year 2013

Autumnal shades

We've been enjoying cool, wet and overcast days here in Kuala Lumpur and it's been a welcomed respite from the heat. 

The word autumn comes from the Old French word autompne (automne in modern French), and was later normalised to the original Latin word autumnus. There are rare examples of its use as early as the 12th century, but it became common by the 16th century. Before the 16th century, harvest was the term usually used to refer to the season. However, as more people gradually moved from working the land to living in towns (especially those who could read and write,  the only people whose use of language we now know), the word harvest lost its reference to the time of year and came to refer only to the actual activity of reaping, and autumn, as well as fall, began to replace it as a reference to the season (cited from the all-knowing and much referenced Wikipedia)

So, inspired by climes on the other side of the world, here's our autumn hued floral offering

“Fiery colors begin their yearly conquest of the hills, propelled by the autumn winds. Fall is the artist.”-Takayuki Ikkaku, Arisa Hosaka and Toshihiro Kawabata, Animal Crossing: Wild World, 2005

A Pearl Wedding Anniversary

Mr. & Mrs. Yong (together with their talented children) celebrated their 30th wedding anniversary. What an evening it was, packed with stunning performances, thoughtful speeches, scrumptious dinner and merry making! 

The theme was maroon and pearl - a gorgeous and fitting match for this anniversary.
The floating pearls at the base of the vase added a nice finish.
The candles on the flower stands cast a magical glow around the room when they were lit up.
The tall candelabras with an understated touch of flowing stands of pearls.
Smaller floral candelabras were placed on top of these handsome pillars which featured swirling organic designs.

The deep hues of these maroon roses stood out against the white and green blooms and the glow of the candle light.
Sublime when the house lights came down.
Mr Yong presented his lovely wife with a bespoke bouquet of her favoured madonna lilies. 
The handle featured whimsical pearl beading.

We had heaps of fun at every stage leading up to the event and even more during!  Thank you for letting us play a a part in creating this wonderful setting. Congratulations Mr & Mrs. Yong!

Forget impersonal floral stands. Make a statement!

Flowers to impress clients? Impersonal stands left on outdoor walkways are a thing of the past!   

Make a statement with this tall congratulatory arrangement featuring a lush tropical composition of crab claws, golden ramsy orchids, white dendrobium orchids, eustomas and green ping pong mums alongside curly willow braches and heaps of leaves in various green hues.

 At 5 feet tall it definitely is a statement piece!

Or if space is an issue, then how about this 2.5 feet tall composition of yellow roses, crab claws, AJ storey orchids and cymbidium orchids. 

The recipients of this vase were thrilled which means the client who commissioned it was more than happy with us. Smiles all round!

Bloomin' Vases

Floral arrangements in vases are always a classic choice. Whether it’s a tall piece for the entryway or something more compact for the coffee table, we’ve always had a natural preference for vase-based designs. Plus, there’s no need to use floral foam and just fill up with clean water (but remember to change it often and wash your vase out with soap when the flowers have wilted – it’s shocking how many folks don’t do this!).

Here are some recent compositions:

Presented in a clear tubular vase, this composition stands at almost 2 feet tall and features lilies, tuberoses, eustomas and curly willows sitting among lush greenery.

Perfect for a man’s abode, here’s a design with crab claws and green anthuriums with swirly, marble-like white shading. 

All the shades of summer can be found in this arrangement featuring gerberas, carnations and cymbidium orchids. 

We sent off a whole bunch of these pastel hued beauties composed of eustomas, hydrangaes, mums, alstromerias and ivy for a wedding at the Carcosa Seri Negara recently. 



Welcome to the neighbourhood!

ST just moved into the neighbourhood and wanted a house warming arrangement that worked for her new pad. So we put together this composition of white lilies, champagne and white eustomas, purple carnations, salix with little sprouting shoot (like!)  all nestled in some multi-green hued leaves. 



The Day that was Valentine's 2012

No matter how you look at it – be it as a commercially driven event or as the day star-crossed lovers exchange mushy declarations of love – there is some magic in Valentine’s Day (segue: I’m thinking of Queen’s 'It's a Kind of Magic'). We met so many people ... girl/boyfriends, parents, grandparents, siblings and friends who popped in to pick-up something special for their loved ones… and vicariously the Nooklets (as we’re unofficially being referred to these days) shared in this magic

On an encouraging note, our signature, minimalist style of presentation continues to be well received and more and more customers are taking the cue and placing emphasis on the natural beauty of the flowers as opposed to the copious amounts of paper and plastic that it conventionally arrives in. Brenda, our principal florista is also standing firm in her quest to educate folks that Valentine's Day blooms should not be limited to roses but instead be a reflection of the receiver's taste. The thought the sender puts into this will naturally make for a better bouquet. But this is an ongoing project ...

As a bonus, Stephen Chong ( spent the day in the flower shop taking photos of us going about our work. Stephen was so quiet and stealth-like, we forgot he was even there but he says it makes for better photos!  The slideshow of his day at Nook can be found at Kizoa slideshow - Nook Flowers.

Loads of folks posted on Facebook about the flowers they received from us, so we’ll just let the photos do the talking:

Personal fave was from Doggy Bag Malaysia. "Thank you Nook! Your wonderful bouquet of flowers arrived yesterday and as you can is enjoyed by all! Ziggy gives Nook a big nose up!"

To those of you who walked-in that day, you would have been cheerily served by the oh-so-sweet Farah Diyanah who (happily for us) was back in Malaysia for her hols and chose to spend the day amongst the blooms. Here’s her account of  A Day as a Nooklet.

Farah leaves for Melbourne in a few days and we are sending her off with thoughts of gratitude and much, much affection. It was joy having you with us, kiddo and you made us all smile (even Brenda who can be hyper-serious when in work mode) J

To our customers (repeat and first timers), Valentine's Day or not, we're grateful to have you in our lives. 



Spring in a watering can

Valentine's Day is a week away

When she says, "This Valentine's Day you don't need to do anything special for me, honey," are you going to fall for it? 


Happy 200th birthday Mr. Dickens!

The bound books have been brought down from the shelf and today we’re celebrating the birthday of one of our favourite writers. What’s your favourite book by Dickens? Here are some quotes which may strike a familiar chord:

“There are books of which the backs and covers are by far the best parts.” (Charles Dickens, Oliver Twist)

“It is a fair, even-handed, noble adjustment of things, that while there is infection in disease and sorrow, there is nothing in the world so irresistibly contagious as laughter and good humour.” (Charles Dickens, A Christmas Carol

“It was the best of times, it was the worst of times.”  (Charles Dickens, A Tale of Two Cities)

“My meaning simply is, that whatever I have tried to do in life, I have tried with all my heart to do well; that whatever I have devoted myself to, I have devoted myself to completely; that in great aims and in small, I have always been thoroughly in earnest.” (Charles Dickens, David Copperfield)

“Love her, love her, love her! If she favours you, love her. If she wounds you, love her. If she tears your heart to pieces – and as it gets older and stronger, it will tear deeper – love her, love her, love her!” (Charles Dickens, Great Expectations)

“The whole difference between construction and creation is exactly this: that a thing constructed can only be loved after it is constructed; but a thing created is loved before it exists.” (Charles Dickens)

and of course

“There is nothing better than a friend, unless it is a friend with chocolate.” (Charles Dickens)

 Did you know that the Scarlet Geranium featured above is said (by the folks at the Dickens Fellowship) to be the author's favoured flower. Find out more about this and other Victorian blooms from
