The American Triads have found the Christmas spirit in Japan. During the previous two weeks, Kiseki no Hoshi has turned over the chrysanthemum display to Christmas.
The team began the process with removal of plants and large structures.
The display details were then refined- ornaments were added, snow was created, lights were hung, etc…
Nick and I were able to help with many projects. The largest and most time consuming task was to plant the numerous plants in the correct scheme.
After this hard work was complete, we moved on to other areas of the museum to foster Christmas spirit.
Next, we worked on a particularly challenging project- the miniature town. Our objective was to create a story with the miniature people, while adding plants with silver foliage and fluffy white flowers to create the effect of snow.
First, we completed the hardscaping of the town square. Each stone was laid by hand!
Then, we designed the gardens and added the town’s people.
