Friendship Through FlowersTuesday, August 14, 2018
She began by teaching ikebana, the Japanese art of flower arranging, in the 1960s. Her activities expanded when she and her husband, James (Sungi), encouraged George Sukeji Morikami to donate land to Palm Beach County in 1973, which eventually became the Morikami Museum and Japanese Gardens in Delray Beach.
Mihori, 84, has been involved with the Morikami ever since then, first helping to fill the museum with Japanese art and then leading activities like kabuki dance and the Japanese tea ceremony. Today, however, she's most likely to be found teaching ikebana at either the Morikami or the Boca Raton Museum Art School.
"Ikebana is really three-dimensional flower sculpture," she explains. "It's not just putting flowers into a vase."
Today, she is the coordinator of the Eastern Branch of the Sogetsu School, a contemporary branch of ikebana, which she founded here in 1969 - 23 years after it was founded in Tokyo. When Mihori decided to teach sogetsu, she returned to Japan to study and attain the highest leadership rank, riji. Sogetsu differs dramatically from other schools of ikebana in that it's more flexible and reflective of a contemporary lifestyle.
"Sogetsu emphasizes creativity and originality," Mihori explains, adding that the name combines the Japanese words for "gra... http://bocaratonobserver.com/observed/la-vida-boca/2018-08-friendship-through-flowers/
Homegrown and beautiful: Photo show makes a case for Florida native plantsTuesday, August 14, 2018
Except that left to its own devices, it wouldn’t look that way. It would look a great deal more like the 100 photographs of Florida native plants in Renewal: Going Native at the Palm Beach Photographic Centre in West Palm Beach. PHOTOS: Florida native plants at Palm Beach Photographic CentreMany Florida gardeners have gone native, including the photo center’s president and chief executive officer, Fatima NeJame.She doesn’t feel she’s missing out by bypassing the exotic plants that have squeezed out natives in many landscapes. Everything that grows in her West Palm Beach yard is either a native or an edible plant.They’re not only beautiful, but also if you plant the right native in the right place “you’re protecting the wildlife and you don’t need to fertilize or water so much,” she said.She hopes the exhibition convinces others to give native plants a try.NeJame organized the exhibition with West Palm Beach resident Susan Lerner, the three-term president of the Palm Beach County Chapter of the Florida Native Plant Society.NeJame is the chapter’s treasurer. Lerner recently was hired to fill the newly created director of horticulture position with the Preservation Foundation of Palm Beach.“We want to show people how beautiful natives are ... https://www.palmbeachdailynews.com/news/local/homegrown-and-beautiful-show-makes-case-for-florida-native-plants/UGAGaMxraCfNzqgB0MY4CP/

Five Couples Escape the Familiar for Destination Weddings - Louisville.comTuesday, April 16, 2019
Taiesha N. Washington & Ke’Onda L. JarmonWed on June 23, 2018Henderson Beach State Park, Destin, FloridaPhotographer: Michael HammerAttire: Gilded Gown, Knoxville, TennesseeHair: Woodrow Trumbo; A’bril Elon, celebrity hair stylist, AtlantaMakeup: Nadiyyah Shabazz“Visit the destination at least twice before the wedding day,” says Ke’Onda, who with Taiesha traveled to Destin to seek out and confirm vendors. “Do your homework on hotels, flights and restaurants that are cost-efficient for everyone invited. A destination was always a dream of mine. The ocean is therapeutic, and that is how I envision a strong marriage. We know how aggravating it could be trying to invite everyone and to greet everyone who attended. Once we announced that we were having a destination wedding, the majority of our family and friends were no longer disappointed they didn’t get an invite. But we didn’t get to invest much in our local small businesses of Louisville. Although several were used, we wanted to support more.”Brooke Wethington & Scott MorrisonWed on June 7, 2018?Lowndes Grove Plantation, Charleston, South CarolinaPhotographer: Firm AnchorFlowers: Out of the Garden, CharlestonHair and makeup: Meg Workman, CharlestonAttire: Dress from Robert Bullock. Suit from JoS. A. Bank.“The lifesaver to planning my wedding was Instagram,” Brooke says. “I would search hashtags of Charleston weddings. When you plan a destination wedding, you can cut costs by getting married on a weekday — venues are almost half the cost on a Thursday! I was under the impression that planning a destination wedding can be a way to cut costs — less people? — and that is false. I went significantly over my budget due to traveling and adding small details to make my guests more comfortable. And I came home with too many personalized koozies and ChapSticks, so that’s a detail I may have left out. It was the best time having all of my favorite people on the beach just relaxing for days before and after. I strongly suggest having a large area for people to hang out. We rented a large house with a pool. So fun!”Hannah Sells & Geoff LyversWed on July 21, 2018Lost River Cave, Bowling GreenPhotographer: Zoe DannenmuellerHairstylist: Kimberly Spears (and ... https://www.louisville.com/content/five-couples-escape-familiar-destination-weddings
Drew Barrymore's Bohemian Home Decor Collection for Walmart Screams Florida Airbnb, and I Love It - JezebelWednesday, April 03, 2019
Allow me, a human with zero traditional interior design training and a whole lot of opinions, to be the judge of that.Item one:Sea shells, the flowers of the sea! These are gaudy in a particularly Florida Airbnb kind of way (you know, the furniture that adorn every villa in Kissimmee, FL and the other small cities adjacent to Disney World?) That said, they’re kinda cute. $26 is pretty affordable, too, especially considering they weigh four pounds.Rating: 7/10Item two:AdvertisementI love these friendly looking birds (and once again, the color scheme suggest a strong Florida vacation vibe) but why is it $124? It’s a print in a nice frame, and it’s quite large, but for more than one hundred dollars? That’s, like, 31 rolls of white Christmas lights at Walmart, or 25 bags of Tyson-brand chicken nuggets. Not a deal.Rating: 2/10Item three:AdvertisementIf you don’t have children, or pets, or a messy partner—these creamy white fabric baskets make for a great accent. But I believe in the power of Ikea, where you could probably grab something of equal or greater value for less than that $70 price point.Rating: 3/10Item four:AdvertisementIf you’re in the market for a $200 dog bed then perhaps you don’t need to shop at Walmart, however, this is absolutely gorgeous and I’m considering taking the plunge despite not having disposable income, or a dog. Barrymore, buddy, if you’re reading this—this is where your design skills shine.Rating: 8/10Item ... https://jezebel.com/drew-barrymores-bohemian-home-decor-collection-for-walm-1833742851
