FOR THE HOME

Porcelain flower bouquet

Flowers are always a good idea, but unfortunately, they are temporary. This year, give the gift of flowers that will last throughout the year with these stunning porcelain bouquets. Handcrafted from Blanc de Chine porcelain and finished in matte white and a white gloss base, this would make a lovely addition to a bedside or coffee table. Find a bouquet at Collected by Elizabeth Malmo for $568.
