Flower Recipe Book

The Flower Recipe Book begins with tips for tools and techniques to make arrangements last as long as possible.

Recipes for using 43 different types of flowers-from alliums to zinnias-on their own, with complementary buds and for special occasions follow. Each recipe lists the “ingredients” (number and varieties of flowers and foliage), suggesting an appropriate vessel for displaying them. A series of four pictures alongside specific instructions walk you through the steps of assembling the arrangement.

Studio Choo's flower arrangements in it run the gamut of styles and techniques: some are wild and some are structured; some are time-intensive and some are astonishingly simple. Ingredient lists specify the type and quantity of blooms needed; clear instructions detail each step; and 400 photos show how to place every stem. Readers will learn how to work with a single variety of flower to great effect, and to create vases overflowing with layered blooms.
