Because we all could use a little flower therapy these days, I’m sharing some flower love with a giveaway:
Celebrated flower farmer and floral designer Erin Benzakein presents all the secrets to designing garden-fresh bouquets. In these stunning pages, you’ll find everything you need to start making your own incredible arrangements, whether you’re harvesting flowers from the backyard or sourcing ingredients at the local market.
Discover easy-to-follow advice on flower care, material selection, and essential design techniques, along with how-tos for more than 25 seasonal arrangements—including magnificent centerpieces, giftable posies, festive wreaths, and breathtaking bridal bouquets. Plus, an A–Z ingredient guide provides photos and care tips for more than 200 bouquet-worthy plants, making it easy to identify and use a wide range of beautiful flowers, foliage, and more. Brimming with expert advice and hundreds of vibrant images, A Year in Flowers is the definitive guide to flower arranging and a welcoming invitation to surround yourself with natural beauty all year long.
I love this book! I preordered back in December and it’s full of floral inspiration and wonderful techniques and tips to create everything from hand-tied bouquets and centerpieces to bridal bouquets, wrist corsages and flower crowns.
I have more than a few flower books and this book is one I refer to often, not only for technique but to get a flower fix!
Feast your eyes on lilacs. . .
Peonies. . .
And many other beautiful summer blooms!
Flowers can be hard to come by these days while we’re isolating at home and a package of seeds provides a lot of bang for the buck!
Support small or local businesses if you can afford to with the purchase of a gift card or even something as small as a package of seeds. You can order seeds online from Floret Flowers . . .
“Happiness held is the seed; happiness shared is the flower.”
With Mother’s Day around the corner, I’m giving away a copy of A Year in Flowers along with 3 packets of seeds to one reader (easy-to-grow varieties based on availability).
