Oh so fancy

This week, things got fancy. Like, high class, high heels and high prices fancy.

From Ikebana International: Ikebana is the Japanese art of flower arrangement. It is more than simply putting flowers in a container. It is a disciplined art form in which the arrangement is a living thing where nature and humanity are brought together. It is steeped in the philosophy of developing a closeness with nature.

That big red flower? It costs six dollars. Seriously.

Next up, formal linear. Like Ikebana, these arrangements are expensive. Why? Because the skill and creativity necessary to make these arrangements are worth the price. There are no set rules — the designer just has to have that special talent.
