Mums Around the World
From carved candles to fabric prints, the Chrysanthemum flower and petal patterns have proven to be a timeless and hardy addition to any engagement. In Japanese culture the petals are considered to be a symbol of perfection, and for this reason, Confucius suggested they be used as an object of meditation.
Japan celebrates the flower yearly in a Festival of Happiness where growers show off their amazing sculptural plants. Below is a traditional dome or Thousand Bloom Chrysanthemum, which takes over a year to cultivate from one stem!

Vibrant Flowers is inspired the versatility of the mum in every season and many forms. Given that there are so many varieties of mums, their look can be altered for any occasion. It is also said that if you place one petal of a Chrysanthemum in the bottom your wine glass it will encourage a long and healthy life. We say, “Cheers to that!”
