Think of it as the floral arranging class you've always wanted to take — only now, it's in the form of a jaw-dropping coffee-table tome: The Flower Recipe Book ($25). Perfect for everyone from the DIY bride (yep, just in time for wedding season!) to the avid farmers market flower forager, this new book makes artful arrangements look doable — even for amateurs.
Created by highly sought-after floral designers Alethea Harampolis and Jill Rizzo of Studio Choo, the book includes step-by-step tutorials for creating arrangements, bouquets, wreaths, and garlands categorized by season and formality. Breathtaking visuals aside, sections like the tool box stock list, vessel guide, techniques tutorial, and helpful hints section are the meatier portions you'll want to curl up with and study.
We're tempted to gather a group of girlfriends together for a spin on the traditional book club (think seasonal floral arranging instead of literary discussions). Fun, right? For just a taste of what this book has to offer, keep reading to discover how easy it is to create this purple and yellow anemone stunner.
