Ikebana featured at Subaru

Subaru 2


I excitedly accepted an invitation to provide 12 ikebana arrangements for the grand opening of a Subaru dealership in Port Coquitlam. Another instructor from the Sangetsu school and I were challenged to make arrangements with the theme of “motion” in mind, and to try to use the corporate colours of royal blue, white and silver. We were able to assemble 12 containers which were the right colours. I had some old curly willow, contorted hazel and twisted allium, which I spray painted silver, and found some interesting poppy pods with bent stems. Mayumi found some cherry blossom branches which portrayed motion, so we were in business. The team members of the dealership all told us how happy they were to see our arrangements, and that they helped make the evening a success.
