Japanese Ikebana for Every Season

I love fresh flowers. It is a drawback to rent because I’m afraid of taking the time to start a garden. I depend on potted plants in the spring and summer.  I don’t buy single stems often enough, but when I do bring them home and set in a vase, I hope they last for awhile.

Did you know that there is an art to arranging flowers? I am very intrigued to learn more about this!

Ikebana—the traditional Japanese art of flower arrangement—is the ability to take a few beautiful flowers and plans and tastefully present them in very simple containers to decorate your home. I have a ton of great containers, not just vases, that I think would work wonderfully. Reuse, right?

How do we learn more about Ikebana you ask? In a brand new book titled Japanese Ikebana for Every Season where you will find 53 easy, but elegant arrangements that anyone can create whether it is for an every day centerpiece or a holiday gift like Valentine’s Day!

We will learn that  anyone can give it a try! All we need to do is understand a few simple principles and techniques of flower stabilization and supporting plants and flowers inside of the container you chose. See there is a process to it all…an art. We don’t need to make it complicated as any common plant will do whether it comes from the grocery store, our garden, or the wild fields down the street.

In just a few minutes we should be able to create a new masterpiece just by using what is already around us. Can’t you just see the face of your neighbor or best friend when you bring her an Ikebana arrangement? Wouldn’t it be a great thank you gift for someone who just lent you a hand?

I’m excited to give this a try! Now spring…are you coming? I need some fresh flowers! 🙂

  1. This would be fun! I have a nice flower garden but just end up putting cut flowers in a vase. Some other creative arrangemenst would be refreshing
