This is a Maxis Recolour which means that it is a recolour of an item that already exists in your game. Please check the Expansion pack requirements to see which game pack it recolours.
Again a small upload of small but how meaningful items!
I guess most of us, TS3 players, have at least once wondered why the hell did EA make this orchid in such a repulsive colour and made it unrecolourable. It just looked wrong in the majority of interiors. So..I decided to recolour it, because I'm that kinda person for whom everything must fit.
And there you go - a tea colour orchid and a blue orchid. Hope you like it and if you do, please comment or at least click thanks I also appreciate honest constructive feedback.

Tea-coloured one - 120$
Blue - 120$

These items are stand-alone, they do not replace anything!

! IMPORTANT ! 09.01.2010: This set of items has been fixed and now works properly with WA and the patch that came with it. You can now safely redownload the fixed items and use them in your game.

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.
