Small arrangements, Wonderful food.
We had a wonderful time doing small arrangements using tea cups, small bowls. Most important, all dishes were delicious. I wish we do this every week. Well, next time will be around Chinese New Year. Hope you can join us.

(1), (2) Sandy. The first picture shows the shin as the magnolia branch pointing upward. Chinese berries naturally drops as a counter balancing element. When the shin was removed, the dynamic in the arrangement changed. The whole arrangement becomes an horizontal/hanging style. Chinese berries evolve from jushi of Shin in picture (1) to shin itself in picture (2). This is a typical example in ikebana that a small change in composition can make a drastic change in total effect. Pay attention to such changes.
