I have hardly done anything successfully. Look to Mokurai-bozu for a true
example (e.g. Sword and Chrysanthemum!). I keep promising myself I'm
going to do something, one of these days.
BTW, on that topic, how many people would be interested in a March or
April Flower Viewing event in the Northern VA/DC area? Our cherry
blossoms would be right just about then, and depending on the schedule
(and other local events) we may be able to gear it up for just around the
the time of the DC Sakura Matsuri.

- Although Oertha (Alaska) has few if any cherry blossoms, we do have abundant
imaginations. We have been holding a cherry blossom viewing event for the
last four, at least, years. It has grown each year with folks wearing more
and more period Japanese clothing, although this year past I made Chinese for
myself and my family. Number One grandson really likes his hakama and kosode
and wore that again. Our heavy tourney includes a prize for the fighter who
went the farthest using a Japanese weapon with tourney champion sometimes
being both. Haiku contests, garb contests, picnics (weather permitting), a
light Japanese dinner, taking the air and 'viewing the cherry blossoms'
sometimes despite the snow. This has become a highlight of the Eskalyan
calendar. This year past we even had a real tea ceremony performed for us by
Yukiko-son. She had just moved to Eskalya. It was great.
Good luck and have fun with your gathering.
