Whenever I’m in the area, I like to stop by the George V hotel and see what’s new with the flower arrangements. The flower person is actually an American that I met once. He gets a million euros a year just to buy the flowers and he makes stunning arrangements. There aren’t flowers in the lobby at Christmas but sort of permanent arrangements, probably so the staff can take December off.
Black and red. I’m seeing a lot of this used around Paris right now. A French lady told me that the French don’t use green and red for Christmas decorations like the English and Americans do. Now that I think about it, I usuall see a lot of silver, gold and white.
