Have you heard? Spring showed up two weeks early here in New England – guess that Pennsylvanian groundhog had it right this year! Today’s temps are supposed to break some records so spring flowers will soon be blooming in just time for Easter. And just time for Easter, some of our favorite floral designers are out with new books filled with sumptuous bouquets.
We’re inspired by Ariella Chezar’s step-by-step instructions in The Flower Workshop and think she might even be able to teach us a thing or two. Lewis Miller’s exquisite new book, Styling Nature, is filled with gorgeous photographs shot by Don Freeman making this tome worthy of a collector’s bookshelf.
And former Wall Street broker and compliance officer, DeJuan Stroud, took a big leaf of faith when he quit finance to turn his hobby of floral design into a business (we know what that’s like!) Now he’s one of the most sought-after event planners in New York and his new book, Designing Life’s Celebrations, is sure to please. This fresh guide to entertaining will show you how to conquer “stem fear” and create beautiful bouquets to go along with your tablesettings. Every meal should be a celebration, shouldn’t it?
Hurrah…Spring has nearly sprung!
