Book Review: The Flower Workshop

Most flower arranging “how to” books tend to focus on the very basics when it comes to species and flower selection. The standard bouquet has been done a million times with slight variations and quite frankly has become boring and cliche. It is time for a change.

The Flower Workshop by Ariella Chezar brings foraging seasonal local plants into the equation making this a much more interesting and comprehensive read. Berries, ferns, evergreens, some weeping willow. Be creative and think outside the box. A walk around the park can be very productive for your next flower arranging project.

Regardless of if you are just getting started in flower arranging or have been doing it for years and are looking for fresh new ideas, you will find this book useful. Chezar is an artist and expert at her craft and flower arrangers will be referencing this book for years to come.

I received this book from Blogging for Books for this review.
