Wishing You Happy New Year!


May this new year brings you countless smiles and happiness.

On the new year's day in 2013, I appreciate all of the people who I have met in the past years, the people who I will be destined to meet in this new year and the people around me. My appreciation can't be limited toward not only people I have met, things I have loved, happy memories I have saved and unforgettable places I have been to.

This flower arrangement was made with red misletoe and white cotton flower. I was supposed to make a Christmas wreath with them (like I did last year) but decided turning them into a ikebana (Japanese style flower arrangement) for welcoming new year. The pot I used for this arrangement was heritated from my grandmother.

新年あけましておめでとうございます。

2013年の元旦に思うことは、感謝の気持ち。昨年出会ったたくさんの人たちと、これから出会えるたくさんの人たち。お気に入りのもの、楽しかった思い出、忘れられない旅。たくさんのことに「ありがとう」の気持ちが生まれます。

このアレンジメントは、大晦日に作ったもの。庭のやどりぎの赤い実と白い綿の実。色使いがクリスマスっぽいので、本当は昨年作ったようなクリスマスリースを作ろうと思ったですが、紅白の色使いが新年を迎えるのにもふさわしいかな・・・と。というわけで、生け花スタイルで。器は祖母のものです。

 
Wishing you Happy New Year!

よい新年をお迎えください。今年もよろしくお願いします!
