Ikebana of Melbourne Florida, Chapter 216 was pleased to bring Brevard County ​A Day of Living Art

An Exhibition and Live Demonstrations of Ikebana,

The Art of Japanese Flower Arranging.  

   It was held on Thursday, March 14th, 2019, between 1 pm and 4 pm at     the Suntree Library Community Room located at 902 Jordan Blass   Drive, Melbourne, FL 32940  

Admission was Free 

At the very core of the Ikebana mission is the directive to further peace in our world by developing mutual understanding and friendship with other countries and our neighbors through the art of Japanese Flower Arranging.   This art form crosses all gender lines, all race descriptions, is not bound by age requirements, and is available to anyone who wishes to enhance their lives and the lives of others.  The ability to make someone smile with a simple gift of flowers is powerful and enriches the lives of both the giver and the receiver.


Our Chapter understands that bringing our passion for this art form to others is as important as the enjoyment that we receive from making a beautiful arrangement.  To this end we conduct various events in the community in which we live to bring the joy of Ikebana to others.  Below we  post our current flyers for upcoming events, along with photo slide shows and results of some of the events we have already held.

The Henegar Center for the Arts, in Melbourne Florida held a Gala in March, 2019  that the members of Ikebana International Chapter 216 Melbourne created beautiful flower arrangements for.
