Have you ever wanted beautiful flower arrangements for your home, or for an event but didn’t know how to make them yourself? Yeah we’ve always thought that too, that’s why we decided to pick up The Flower Chef by Carly Cylinder. We were tired of so many people getting in on the fun flower arranging and us being left out with our prefab droopiness; but since then Carly’s book has really inspired us.
Her book is basically a DIY guide to flowers and floral arrangements. She covers various topics in her book, from step by step instructions on cutting, the types of flowers and keeping them fresh, to step by step flower “recipes” so you can recreate your own arrangement. We love that her book is for every level of floral arrangements, and she includes a lot of the basics for people like us who have no experience with arranging flowers. We feel like we could easily pick this up and apply the concepts and designs to our lives and events with no problem. We also love her background story in the intro, and the fact that she never dreamed that she would own a floral design business.
The Flower Chef book itself is beyond gorgeous. It’s filled with fabulous photography, as well as easy to follow tutorials and recipes. We also love how much she formats her flower recipes like food recipes. They contain your “cook time”, prep time, price, season, and difficulty. So it’s really all out there for you to follow and decide what arrangements you want to start with and what you will need to complete them.
We’re also excited to tell you about a great contest going on at The Blogger Babes site!
