There are currently 44 members of the association that meet once a month at Hellerup Sognegård at Hellerup Church.
The annual program is composed in advance with various themes. Each meeting begins with an ikebana demonstration for inspiration. The members then make their own arrangements and receive constructive critique from the instructor.
