Added on by the ikebana shop.

The Biscuit Eater is a cozy café and bookshop in Mahone Bay, NS.

They were kind enough to host a mini exhibit for us!  So last Thursday (July 18th) Miyako and Susan (Miyako's student) worked all morning to set it up.

This arrangement, a combination of 3 containers, greets guests as they enter the café .

Inside, there are little spaces that allow for smaller arrangements.  The window sills are especially bright and cheery!

The one on the left uses a teapot as container!  The round yellow container on the right hides among square and triangle shapes! (Accidentally reminiscent of Zen master Sengai's work: The Universe!)

The space along the hallway that connects the two sitting rooms allows us a taller arrangement.  The arrangement on the right is for ladies only.  Ladies, make sure you visit the WC! :-)

After all the work, a sumptuous lunch!  This is the Greek Isles Plate: hummus, kalamata olives, warm pita, cucumber, tomato, romaine lettuce and feta cheese.

The mini exhibit will be in place up to at least Sunday (July 21st) or, if the flowers are still holding up, even later the following week.   

We will have an ikebana workshop also at The Biscuit Eater on July 31st, Wednesday.  You can sign up at the café or by email/phone directly to us.
