Bento #98 Poinsettia

Posted by Journal Mommy Yenny at 12:55 PM
Okay..Still in spirit of welcoming Christmas ^o^
today's theme of bento was inspired by Poinsettia shrubs.

Wikipedia: The star-shaped leaf pattern is said to symbolize the Star of Bethlehem, and the red color represents the blood sacrifice through the crucifixion of Jesus.[8       

The dessert was quite tempting for kids, the ready-bought alphabet jelly :b
In here, Poinsettias are quite popular as Christmas decoration too. 
I think I misplaced the buds, should be in the center rather than scattered around the leaves.
Other contents were fried chicken wings and mini mandarin. The rice was green-colored by edamame powder.

I'll make similar-theme bento, with more flowery of Poinsettia, in other chance :p
