Sticking with the Japanese theme (Emoji is Japanese if you didn't already realise), this is actually a representation of a Moon Viewing Ceremony, or Otsukimi harvest celebration, honouring the full moon. The white balls are rice dumplings, and the plant is Japanese susuki grass, both of which are being offered in appreciation of the full moon.
