My goodness! This has certainly been an eventful week! First the relaunch of Creature Comforts (thank you all for your kind comments and support) and then yesterday after a month’s delay, our moving truck finally showed up with most of our belongings intact! To say that my daughter and I are elated would be the understatement of the century. I’ll be sharing more about our experience in a post next week—a cautionary tale with details about the companies we worked with so that you can keep yourself and those you love as far away from them as possible. But for now…I’d like to direct your attention to something far more lovely: The Flower Recipe Book by Alethea Harampolis and Jill Rizzo of Studio Choo. Let’s take a little peek, shall we?
I’ve been a huge fan of Studio Choo for many years, and decided that I just couldn’t pass on picking up a copy of their book last weekend. While I haven’t had time to devour every single “recipe” in its entirety, every one that I’ve read so far has inspired me to no end.
My favorite aspect of the book (other than the gorgeous floral photos on every page) is they way that Alethea and Jill demonstrate multiple arrangement “recipes” for nearly every flower “ingredient” featured…all with a simple, user-friendly approach. They include 2-3 “recipes” broken down like so: Recipe 1: On it’s Own, Recipe 2: With Company, Recipe 3: Special Occasion. So no matter what your skill level or floral decor needs (a simple bloom to brighten your desk or a stunning centerpiece for a dinner party), you are going to find more than enough inspiration to fuel your creative floral designing endeavors. For someone who has only just gotten their feet wet in the world of flower arranging, this book is a welcome treat!
The Flower Recipe Book is published by Artisan Books, and is available in the Studio Choo online shop or at a fine bookstore near you too.
