Flower decorations are used as accessories too like boutonnieres that are worn by grooms, attendants, ushers and bride and groom's fathers. They are made from single or several small buds and are worn on the left lapel of the jacket. Corsages can be worn in a variety of styles like pin_on, wrist or handheld and are made of either a single bloom or a small cluster of blooms.
My Personal Journey to the Way of the Flower _ I am a native of Shikoku, the smallest and less populated of the four main islands that comprise the Japanese archipelago. I was born and raised in what was then known as Iyomishima, a small town located between a backdrop of beautiful mountains and the Seto Inland Sea, the waters that separate Shikoku from Honshu, the main island of Japan. Without a doubt, the rich natural settings that I enjoyed at my birthplace throughout my childhood and youth, had a profound effect in how my sensitivities for nature and art developed over time, and to this date.
