Another year had gone by, and another new year celebration is literally right in front of us. Now, usually at this time of the year, I would be moaning and grumbling about the massive amount of cleaning that needed done before we enter the New Year. However, this year must be my lucky year, because I was away for the weekend just there to meet a friend down in London (they're from the States and are a bit obsessed with all things royal family related) and oh my goodness! I come home and all the cleaning was done already! Scooooooooooore! Ahem, I mean, Thank you, little sister and mummy. Love ya lots!
Anyways, it's the year of the Rooster for 2017, and not one, but two members of my family are Roosters. In fact, a third member would be joining the rooster club soon as my sister is currently pregnant with her first child and would be due in May! So we'd have a little chick in our family fairly soon?
Now, according to online sources, the lucky colours of those born in the year of the rooster are golden brown, brownish yellow and yellow. But be careful to avoid white and green because those aren't that great in the luck area.
As always, flowers are highly recommended for Chinese New Year celebrations. In Hong Kong, there would be giant floral markets during this time of the year, selling all sorts of lucky varieties of plants - such as bamboo, cherry blossoms, peonies, daffodils, etc.
Over here, unfortunately these kind of markets aren't that common. But that doesn't mean you cannot send some to your friends and family! From our basket range, I would suggest our Flowers & Fruit gift basket.
Or, choose a fruit basket. We have a LOT to choose from this year. And Chinese people loves fruit, I noticed. Every family tend to have an overflowing fruit bowl in their dining room/kitchen.
But what if you want some not fruity? And not flowery? How about fish? We got you sorted there with our beautiful organic smoked salmon.
