The Plant Recipe Book

February 3, 2014

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!

 

book cover

 

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.

A Fresh Bouquet

Who are the magic makers behind the locally sourced flowers that adorn our tables?  Who really cultivates and arranges the seasonal blossoms that help make our events memorable?  It is with these questions in mind Debra Prinzing and David Perry set out to create their forthcoming book  A 50 Mile Bouquet.

We were delighted to spend time with them this past Summer when they stopped by to learn more about us & our {parking} lot garden.  She, a celebrated writer about gardens and he, a photographer with a lens primed for botanicals.  Together they are creating a special flower growing, gathering, and design guide available to you in April of 2012.

Check out their project- they have some exciting things to share!  Thanks for all the great inspiration Debra and David!
