The Naples Ikebana Chapter

The Naples Ikebana Chapter is one of the larger chapters in the U.S. with about 80+ members.  We generally meet the first Wednesday of the months of November through May.  Our meetings are open to the public (except December) when we have our members only tea at a member’s home.


We meet at the Naples Botanical Garden in the Buehler Auditorium in the FGCU Research Center from 9:30-11:30AM.  Our programs start with a small social period followed by a short business meeting and then our monthly program which often incorporates a workshop open to anyone who makes a prior reservation to take the workshop.

You do not have to be a member of the Naples Botanical Garden or pay an entrance fee to attend our meetings, however, you do have to pay a Garden entry fee to see our exhibit held in February.

Please check out our monthly programs and experience the joy of ikebana and friendship through flowers.

If you are not a member of our chapter, but wish to attend any of our programs or events, please let us know you are coming by sending an email to  You are welcome to attend any two of our monthly meetings as our guest.  Interested in joining?  Click here for an application.  In addition our annual exhibit and March luncheon are open to the public.  The exhibit is free, but you do have to pay an entry fee to the Naples Botanical Garden.  The luncheon requires advance reservations and payment.
