Ikebana principles in this month's arrangement:

In ikebana there’s an arrangement style that does not rely on a kenzan, instead, branches, flowers and leaves are balanced and interlocked together. While we will use a kenzan in our arrangement to assist with balancing most of our materials, it’s important to securely fix together the materials that don’t use a kenzan. Take the time to observe the beauty of the natural lines of your materials, and try to highlight these lines in the careful placement of your materials.

Pro tip:

Cut your branch stems at an angle to make inserting them into your kenzan easier.

Care tip:

Remember to cut your flower stems underwater to allow for maximum hydration!
Change the water in your vase by running your vase under a tap for a couple of minutes. This allows the old water to flow out and fresh water to flow in.
