Decorate with Flowers || A Book Review

7a6c9c30bd1bb0beb2294ce8cc2c74b2 photo 1(1) photo 2(1) flowers1 flowers2It comes as absolutely no surprise to those who know me well…. “I LOVE FRESH FLOWERS!” {yes, I am yelling that as I type it} To me, flowers make all the difference in the world. They add color, freshness, beauty, green….. life to every photo, room, or nook and cranny they are placed in. There is simply nothing better….

So, when my friend Holly Becker and stylist Leslie Shewring teamed up to produce their new book “Decorate with Flowers“…published by Chronicle Books…..I knew I would be first in line to add it to my collection. I also happen to love having beautiful books in my home, that not only make my book shelves and coffee tables look fantastic, but that I can go to over and over for inspiration and relaxation.

As I initially flipped through the book {because I was too excited to sit down and read it} I was drawn to all of the beautiful color, perfectly styled environments, and bright photos. Then, when I got home and actually sat down to spend time pouring over the book….I was absolutely thrilled that Decorate with Flowers is not only pretty styled photographs and beautiful color…..it is also FULL of tutorials and sweet DIY projects! Double goodness indeed.

I was so inspired by all of the projects in this book, that I went out and bought a bunch of succulents and flowers to plant at the shop. Gracie and I spent a whole afternoon planting and creating with flowers….and now the shop is brimming with beautiful Spring arrangements.

Thank you, Holly and Leslie….for a book that is beautiful and inspiring!

Well done!
