Arrangement with Sweet Frangrances Kumquats and limes evoke a tropical getaway, as do lush blossoms of phalaenopsis orchids (available at many supermarkets). The perfumes of paperwhite narcissus and jasmine are a surefire pick-me-up. As you make the arrangement, insert the sturdy citrus branches before adding the delicate flower stems.
Take the mantra “less is more” to heart and let a single flower shine. Choose a captivating but affordable bloom from your bouquet, like these ‘Showmaster’ amaryllis, then cluster the stems in various-size vessels strewn across your tables. You’ll find that there’s beauty in minimalism -- and repetition.Calligraphy by Masako Inkyo (masako-inkyo.com).
