GARDEN CLUB

Our garden club here in Florida meets in the morning the first Monday of the month. We met at one of the ladies houses and the program was about Ikebana or Japanese flower arranging. The lady who put on the program was not Japanese and belongs to a neighbouring club. This is her passion and she has actually studied in Japan. After her program was over we all had a chance to make an arrangement. the above red one was mine.
When we were finished our arrangment there were a lot of flowers and greens still left so she divided them up among us and the pink one was done at home later Monday. The red one is now on my coffee table in the sunroom and the pink one graces our dinette table. I think I like the look of this better then a bouquet. Only takes 3 flower stems so would be inexpensive to do. The black round dish we bought from her for 4.00 each but not having another one I used a black plastic container from the grocery. It worked.

Ikebana is such an elegant way to arrange flowers. You did it justice!
I would think when out fleamarketing you might be able to find some plates and cups you could glue together for a tray.
