Japanese flower arrangement

After a very stressful weekend while hubby was in the hospital, I felt the need for a bit of creativity on my return home.

As I'm in the process of studying ikebana (Japanese flower arranging) and our house is covered in flowers at the moment, I thought I'd make some new floral arrangements to brighten the place up for hubby's return.

Above is a photo of my kitchen before I started to sort out the flowers.

And here is the first arrangement (arranged in a recycled tin can!).

And the second arrangement...

I'm sure Hubby will enjoy being surrounded by flowers when he gets home tomorrow. Hope it helps him get better soon:-).


  1. Lovely flower arrangements! I'm sure your hubby will feel much better with the flowers around.

  2. I love the second arragement. It is so artistic!
