It’s the eve of Chinese New Year, the biggest celebration in Chinese culture. Gong hay fat choy! Last week, I had an article and a few photos in the Toronto Star newspaper and today we have a few more photos online featured on 100 Layer Cake. I’ve included some of my favourite shots and ideas from the photoshoot below as well. Enjoy and have a fantastic celebration with family and friends.

Entertain with a special Chinese zodiac inspired menu, so guests can find their horoscope. I accented the chopsticks with a beautifully textured gloriosa lily. Custom calligraphy of “happy chinese new year” by Sarah Kim.
Decorating with clementines and pomegranates are not only auspicious but fragrant, offering a fresh twist on decor. Red and gold are obvious choices too! Floral and rentals by FOS Decor Center.
