Flower Arrangement for New Year’s Day

Japanese apricot blossom, Pine tree, yellow chrysanthemum,  red fruits of chloranthus glaber Makino.

Japanese people like those flowers as plants for celebration. Especially Japanese apricot(Ume) and pine tree.

Ume blooms in very early spring when we can’t see other flowers.

Pine tree has evergreen leaves which has been symbol of virtue in Japan.

Adding bamboo, Japanese people call a set of those three plants “syo-chiku-bai” and admire it as plants for celebration.


A Happy New Year!!!
