Banswari, an elegant florist



Every so often I get mails from people wanting me to feature them on my blog. I know it sounds quite flattering but it usually involves a random company who are just looking for another live link and couldn't care less about where the link was. So, I usually ignore them.

Well, once in a while I get mails suggesting some very interesting sites and that is how I heard about Banswari, a floral decoration store in Chennai. Now I've never been to Chennai, so what I write obviously isn't first hand information, but you can go see their site for yourself. I loved the simplicity and pureness of their style, it didn't involve too many theatrics or drama, but was elegant and classy.



There are tons of wedding decorators around, but what intrigued me about Banswari was that it used completely different materials, and more natural materials, which is very different from what one sees at weddings in the north, which are completely excessive in my opinion. Besides just being a floral decorator, they also have created Banswari Platfrom to introduce artists to a new audience in an effort to showcase and promote their art.

Those bird hangings made from leaves are simply fantastic!

I first came accross such decorations when i visited Dakshinchitra near Chennai. The open courtyard was festooned with these hangings. I wish I had a picture to share. Thanks for sharing...Cheers!

Lakshmi, thanks...I found the decorations to be so different from what one sees in delhi....obviously!

Swati, I've heard so much about Dakshinchitra in Chennai and seen photos on flickr and blogs...must visit it when I'm in the area.
