New Year Ikebana by Megumi

Megumi Schacher is a Sogetsu ikebana teacher based in Seattle, US. I came across this video where she demonstrates a beautiful New Year arrangement with Pine and Mizuhiki, a special paper cord often used in New Year's ikebana arrangements. Note how the plant materials are placed in groups and kept apart, highlighting the colour of each material.

In Japanese culture New Year is usually celebrated over several days, so it's not too late it you want to try a New Year arrangement at home.

There are more nice ikebana arrangements on the website Ikebana by Megumi.
