Japanese Flower Arrangement Basket
Sop Moei Arts carries a large collection of baskets in different shapes and sizes. The various models are sourced from all over Asia including Thailand, Laos, Vietnam and Burma. Many of our customers ask us for ideas of how to use their baskets. This is the first in a series of posts with our suggestions and tips, starting with flower arrangements.
Some of our baskets, such as the Ikebana basket, are perfect for tall flowers while others are suitable for more unusual and creative arrangements. When selecting a container or pot for the arrangement, try to find one that will fit snugly inside the basket. Plastic water bottles make great receptacles, as they come in different sizes and can be cut to fit the basket. Paper can be stuffed around the container if it does not fit well. Check for water leakage, as this may damage the basket. Arrange with your favourite flowers and you will have a unique center piece for your dining room table or living room décor!
