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.
