Ikebana ROCKS!

I don’t know about you, but I think ikebana rocks. This style of Japanese flower arranging is beautiful and colorful, but also understated and simple.

Unlike opulent European-style designs, ikebana uses a minimum number of flowers, carving as much beauty from the “negative” (or e

mpty) spaces between each blossom and stem as from the flowers themselves. I don’t know how to describe it—ikebana just speaks to me.

Come see the artful designs of Ikebana International (Philadelphia Chapter 71) in near the back of Hall B. Their arrangements are just magical.
