New Year's arrangement by Ms.Lin

After class, we had potluck to celebrate new year at Ms. Lin's house. The bottom arrangement was arranged at buffet table which was high up style, piping up with three same kind of container. It was a very unique arrangement for the holiday. (12-20-11)

Happy New Year

This is New Year arrangement for dinner table. Ms. Lin wanted us to use as less table as possible this time, so high up style was suitable for this occasion.
It is typical Japanese new year material to use pine,chrysanthemum,red Berry, red carnation etc. with decorative Mizuhiki (paper strings).(12-20-11)

Christmas arrangement

Its time for Holiday arrangements. Red,green and white are the basic Christmas colors. Those holly which I took home from Boston at my son's house since Thanksgiving. It is still so fresh with red roses and white flowers. I used silver color spray to create Christmas arrangement. I arranged three different styles to finish all material . I have a lot of fun indeed.(12-06-2011)

Variation No8. Combined style Moribana & Moribana

Ms. Lin wanted us to look at the diagrams carefully and arrange it for this combined style again for today's class.
In this style each main stems must be placed at the exact angles prescribed in their Kakei. Total harmony is very important for combining the arrangement, although both of which are also well made with originality and their independent existence. (12-06-2011)

Dr.Ching-Hing Liao Memorial Concert

Arranging at the entrance hall way was my assignment by my teacher this time. Ms. Lin described the hall way map and helped me understand the whole pictures. First, I painted the dead walking stick to black, brought pine and azalea branches and big yellow muns at the class. Since I forgot the container, I used stone instead like the bottom picture shows. It was my first attempt to show my idea to teacher. On Friday afternoon at Auditorium of Temple University Ambler, PA, I did this arrangement. Ms.Lin brought me yellow lilies instead of muns, I used black container and more green branches, the result of which, I am happy with. (10-21-2011)

Thanksgiving arrangement

Thanksgiving holiday's arrangement was our subject this class, but Ms. Lin gave me another assignment this time. So my arrangement was arranged at home. Two arrangements at bottom
were our teacher's Demo. (10-16-2011)

Mellon became material with berry branch and green carnations . Isn't it interesting? Sticking
apples to the branches created another kind of arrangement. I like its idea and creativity.

Demonstration by Ms. Lin

Betty,Lynn and I, took class from Ms. Lin for over three years. Because Irina Hurricane swept over East coast of US a lot of places had no electricity, no water and even water in the basement. Ms. Lin's basement was one of them. It was frustrating to deal with insurance co. and handyman.
But she came for flower arrangement demo. for us. We owe her so many thanks. (9-10-2011)
