Ikebana Class

The week before Thanksgiving, we were lucky enough to have thirty-seven years of collective expertise come to us for an Ikebana class!
Thank you! Thank you for coming!!!!

Ikebana is the Japanese art of flower arranging.  We had a beautiful assortment of flowers to use to make a very elegant Thanksgiving centerpiece.
There were apples and pomegranates too!
 First was the demonstration along with some helpful "how-to's"!  :)
When you cut fresh flowers, do so under water, and snip them three times.
We were all very attentive listeners!!!!!
 Then we were "cut" loose to create our Ikebana arrangement!
With some expert help along the way!

All of our arrangements were quite beautiful!  
To see all of the pictures and many more arrangments, please visit our Facebook page for this album by clicking this link.

Wonderful class!!!!!!
