The Flower Workshop


If you follow me on instagram, you know I have a love of flowers!  I always say, I would have fresh flowers in every room, every day if I won the lottery! If you have been following for a while, you know that I sometimes help out at a friends flower shop, Hilly Fields Florist.

With the prior stated, it will come as no surprise that when I was asked if I wanted to review a book titled, The Flower Workshop: Lessons in Arranging Blooms, Branches, Fruits, and Foraged Materials, by Riella Chezar, I jumped at the opportunity! I have thoroughly enjoyed flipping thru each and every page of this book, and can't wait to have the time to give some of the arrangements/wreaths a try!

RIELLA CHEZAR is the author of Flowers for the Table and a master floral designer whose work has graced the covers and pages of Martha Stewart Living, O Magazine, Smitten, Sunset, Garden Design, Better Homes and Gardens, Domino, Real Simple, Sweet Paul, and many more. She is a teacher at FlowerSchool New York and has designed flower arrangements for the White House. You can read more about her work at www.ariellaflowers.com. I am truly inspired by her beautiful works.

So far some of my favorites that I have dog-eared to try are below. When I give them a try I will  be sure to post.. But until then, I will just glance at these photos to remind myself I need to carve out time to give them a try- becuase they sure our beautiful! 

ps. I am thinking the wreath is totally doable for a summer party , and that tablescape is just divine for a bridal shower!
