The Plant Recipe Book

February 3, 2014
Posted by in Books

With huge gratitude, a touch of fear, and a whole lot-o-glee, I’m announcing my forthcoming book: The Plant Recipe Book: 100 Arrangements for Any Home in Any Season. Due early April 2014, published by Artisan and photographed by Paige Green. This book is a collaboration of so many – and to so many I’m so thankful!

With an eye on today’s modern aesthetic and inspired by natural beauty, The Plant Recipe Book provides simple steps to show anyone how to create stunning living plant decor.
A follow-up to The Flower Recipe Book, it also showcases Paige Green’s beautiful photography and easy-to-follow “how to” recipe style. The Plant Recipe Book focuses on 40 plants and 100 recipes.
Each plant is used in two or three living bouquets, the first is basic while the second and third are more substantial, and employ more unusual plants, sophisticated designs, or hard-to-find ingredients, leading the reader from simple to more elaborate creations.
The 100 container designs included in the book are sometimes sleek, often whimsical, and always contemporary. They range from stark to ornate and from super-easy to more involved.

If Love is Flower

I love the connection between love and flowers in Aila El Edroos’ poem, ‘If Love is a Flower.‘ I hope it inspires you, too.

If Love Is Flower

love is endless 
like flowers that keep on blossoming day and night
love is beautiful
like flowers with different different colors
love is growing
like flowers abundant in the garden
love is to give away
like flowers from my hand to yours
if love is flower
how many gardens grow your flowers? 
how many flowers grow in your garden? 
what are the colors? 
what stories are they telling?
if love is flower
