This is a new mesh, and means that it's a brand new self contained object that usually does not require a specific Expansion pack (although this is possible depending on the type). It may have Recolours hosted on MTS - check below the description for more information.

You can never have enough flowers or Jackie Chan movies. So, I took two of the craftable bouquets from the Sims 2 Open for Business (I think) and converted them for Sims 3. And then I watched Shanghai Knights again.



In the Sims 2, the tulips and snapdragons came in only one flavor. So, I kithrified them, making the tulips fully recolorable (except for the stems) and providing two sizes, humungous--like the Sims 2 original—and not humungous. The humungous and not humungous tulips are compatible with each other, and can coexist in your game without any problems. Kind of like Jackie Chan and Chris Tucker in Rush Hour...





The snapdragons are not recolorable, but I did create 6 presets to add some variety.



No expansion or stuff packs are needed. All meshes were play tested on a base game fully patched to 1.36, and on a game full of expansions and stuff packs using 1.36. They might work on other levels, but there are no guarantees.

I love thanks and welcome comments, and of course, please report any problems you have here in this thread.

Don't forget to Thank the creator after downloading! Use the Thanks button located above the screenshots above.
Quick Guide:

1. Click the file listed on the Files tab to download the file to your computer.
2. Extract the zip, rar, or 7z file. Now you will have either a .package or a .sims3pack file.

For Package files:

1. Cut and paste the file into your Documents\Electronic Arts\The Sims 3\Mods\Packages folder. If you do not already have this folder, you should read the full guide to Package files first: Sims 3:Installing Package Fileswiki, so you can make sure your game is fully patched and you have the correct Resource.cfg file.
2. Run the game, and find your content where the creator said it would be (build mode, buy mode, Create-a-Sim, etc.).

For Sims3Pack files:

1. Cut and paste it into your Documents\Electronic Arts\The Sims 3\Downloads folder. If you do not have this folder yet, it is recommended that you open the game and then close it again so that this folder will be automatically created. Then you can place the .sims3pack into your Downloads folder.
2. Load the game's Launcher, and click on the Downloads tab. Find the item in the list and tick the box beside it. Then press the Install button below the list.
3. Wait for the installer to load, and it will install the content to the game. You will get a message letting you know when it's done.
4. Run the game, and find your content where the creator said it would be (build mode, buy mode, Create-a-Sim, etc.).


Extracting from RAR, ZIP, or 7z: You will need a special program for this. For Windows, we recommend 7-Zip and for Mac OSX, we recommend Keka. Both are free and safe to use.
