A basketful of blooming yellow oncidium orchids. Simple, quick and relatively economical considering they last a week or two. When I am pressed for time and we are entertaining at home, I sometimes purchase plants or orchids at weekend markets while doing the weekly shopping for fruits and vegetables. In this case, I bargained vigorously and purchased 10 small pots of blooming oncidiums for PHP100 each, rushed home and arranged them in a low wide basket, and it was done in a couple of minutes. No fuss at all. A single pot would have been beautiful on its own, but masses of the same flower always make for a special and festive arrangement.
