art has strongly influenced American arrangements. Ikebana, which is the
most popular of Japanese floral art, goes back to sixth century China when a
Japanese scholar went to China to study. For many years priests taught it in
the temples only to men. In some families nowadays, it has become a
requirement for women to practice this art before marriage is available.
Ikebana means " The Living Flowers". From Ikebana come the styles called
Kikka and Seika.
Chinese Character for Happiness
In the Kikka style
all branches and flowers have to meet together in the center of the
arrangement. All the materials are placed in how they grow in nature.
The Seika style
represents the principle of three... Heaven, Man, and Earth. From this comes
our basic triangular shaped floral designing.
These styles of flower arranging are designed to bring peace, tranquility,
and happiness into your everyday life. Operating Feng Shui is having
everything in your life in its proper place and order in relation to the
natural energies that surround you; nothing out of place, direction, or
perspective. Flowers placed properly in your home and office help the flow
of happiness, prosperity and health.
If your home or office seems to need that little something new to pull it
all together, come to Botanical Flowers & Gifts and we will make every
attempt to find that item to build a "Feng Shui" atmosphere in your life.
