From this, to all of these....


Another wedding floral class... I had forgotten about the time change so I was running late and very hungry. This week we tackled a taller centerpiece and were given ferns, amaranthus, seeded eucalyptus and various other greens and flowers to cover our floral foam (Oasis). It was amazing to see what everyone came up with, with all the subtle variations of grouping, height and color.

I would love to go to the Flower Mart downtown to grab some more flowers to play with, as there could be some great ways to use the forms of Ikebana with this traditional design. I do appreciate how Ikebana really let each flower stand alone and shine as these arrangements tend to be more of an explosion of flora and don't really spotlight any particular flower or their stems. Perhaps someday I'll find a way to bring both styles together.
