Halloween ikebana

I have missed many of the ikebana classes this fall but wanted to post the picture of the piece I made around Halloween. We stacked gourds and pumpkins on spikes on a wooden base and added some berries and bittersweet vine to make a composition. It was fun to try this type of freestyle piece. I love the browning hosta leaves - there are so few times that a decaying piece of material is appropriate in an arrangement, but this is one of them!
