Book Review: The Flower Workshop


The Flower Workshop
Ariella Chezar

Whether hosting a party, helping out with a friend’s wedding or wishing to incorporate the beauty of flowers into everyday life, The Flower Workshop allows you to c rate dazzling arrangements that go beyond merely pretty and into realms of the dramatic, the unexpected, and sometimes even the magical. Written by a celebrated floral designer and lavishly illustrated with full-color photography, this book not only provides step-by-step instructions for more than forty-five stunning floral projects from simple to spectacular, but also equips you with the skills to customize arrangements at home. 

Known for her hands-on flower workshops at FlowerSchool New York, Ariella Chezar walks you through the nuts and bolts of creating a variety of small flourishes, tonal arrangements, branch gestures, and more – all accompanied by detailed photography. Chezar offers advice and philosophy on everything from texture to living and working with flowers, with an eye toward fresh, local, wild, seasonally influenced floral designs. For every occasion, from relaxed and simple to lavish and monumental, The Flower Workshop celebrates the special moments in your life with glorious, fragrant floral arrangements and enhances your surroundings with abundant beauty. 

My Thoughts: I’ve always loved flowers, both real and fake, but I’ve never had much luck arranging them. The photography throughout is gorgeous. I love that it’s set up like a recipe book and has the “ingredients” set up on the side you you can easily see what you’ll need for the arrangement. There’s also a bit that says what season it’s for and the intro paragraph for each arrangement offers a good amount of information. If you like Cravings by Chrissy Teigen or Little Felted Dogs  The Flower Workshop is for you.
