Flowers. Easiest (and prettiest) way to snazz up a party, your room, an event or just as a gift to a friend. But if you are not a Martha Stewart type of chick and are lacking those skills to magically create floral wonder at the blink of an eye… you need the book, The Flower Workshop.
The Flower Workshop is a beautiful book of blooms…perfect for displaying on your coffee table. But, it’s also all about giving you the 411 on how to create arrangements that are dramatic, unexpected and exquisite. The author is a celebrated floral designer, who really made her mark at hands-on flower workshops at the Flower School, New York.
Giving you the (easy) step-by-step directions to 45 stunning floral projects, you can arrange flowers from simple to spectacular. From small flourishes to branch arrangements to garlands to even handheld bouquets, she gives you the deets on everything for every season and every color!
Especially in the spring and summer months, I can.not.resist picking up a bouquet of fresh blooms when out at a local market or in town. Just to plop into a vase to add an instant bit of freshness to the house. A little bit of no-brainer glam. Easy peasy. But I’ve decided to step up my game. Time to stop with just the one bouquet of flowers and try making a real fancy-shmancy bouquet. But will I attempt this feat alone? No whaaaaaay.
The Flower Workshop is THE book you want to add to your collection asap. Here’s why.
Photos. Lots-O-Photos. All along the way! Gorgeous images of the steps to make the arrangement, the final product and just pretty photos of flowers. Many.Photos. I never buy recipe books without photos (do you?) and I have the same philosophy for flower arrangement. Pictures, pah-lease!
The author also has an amazing eye toward fresh, local, wild, and seasonally influenced floral design. How fab for summer and heading to local farmers markets!
And not only do you see the floral bouquets done step by step, but the author creates chapters devoted just to a COLOR. Feeling a yellow vibe? Perfect. Flip to that chapter to see how to arrange a bouquet using only that selection of hues.
Starting slowly with some simple arrangements, but cant wait to test out more of the spectacular step-by-step directions for other professional-looking bouquets!
I received this book from the Blogging for Books program in exchange for this review but all opinions are my own.
