The Flower Workshop is an awesome book written by Ariella Chezar. Ariella teaches us how to put together many different beautiful flower arrangements. She teaches us the basics of what tools to use, how to cut and prepare the flowers and other items used in the arrangements. As well as the important information needed to make the arrangement look perfect in color, texture and proportion. She uses more than just flowers in her bouquets. I have never seen strawberries in an arrangement before but they add just the right punch of color.
The book covers a lot more than making arrangements. It covers making handheld bouquets, including cascading bridal bouquets. Instructions include the wrapping and ribbons details for bouquets and boutonniere. The book also shows how to make flower crowns, chandelier crowns, fruit garlands, wreaths and even a marigold curtain.
The book also gives suggestions of alternate flowers and a seasonal flower guide with lists of flowers in various seasons.
I love this book! The book is sturdy hardcover book that will stand up to being read over and over again. The information is so well written and the photos are so beautiful. There are so many arrangement possibilities shown in this book. Some of them look so elegant that they look like they took days to make. But the instructions are so easy to follow. I received this book earlier today and just could not wait to spend time look and dreaming of all the possibilities there are to make the home look artfully decorated. If you like to have floral arrangements in your home, this book is a must. If you have a wedding in your future, this book is a must. It is just great.
I received a copy of this book from Blogging for Books for an honest review.
