We’re so counting down the days until spring… If only Mother Nature would cooperate with the weather. It’s March and we’re still in single digit temps! We can’t even imagine how long it will take for the frozen tundra that is our back yard to melt and we know our crocus and snowdrops are eager to bloom.
As we wait for gardens to green, we’re excited to read that the uber talented Holly Becker (decor8) has collaborated with the equally gifted Leslie Shewring (A Creative Mint) on Decorate With Flowers, a new “decorating book with a very floral point-of-view”, and has launched a website to tease us with pretty pictures from the book until it is published in April (in five languages no less!)
Given that we can barely make a bunch of roses look good in a vase (yep – floral design is a recessive trait which neither of us inherited!), we know we’ll be soaking up the advice in this gem of a book. From picking the blooms to arranging them in unusual containers, to party and decorating ideas (cocktail hour with the girls looks pretty good to us), Holly’s delightful how-to’s are paired with Leslie’s beautiful styling and photographs making this book a must have for flower lovers everywhere.
