"The market needs fresh ideas and innovation, and Glowing Flowers fit into the 'bling bling' trend," [FloraHolland BV] said, referring to a fad for wearing copious jewelry inspired by rap musicians.

I dunno. Walking around a darkened room full of these things would make me think I'd stumbled into the Yule of the Damned.
