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!

 

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.

Your wreath can live on – long after the holidays pass you by…

 

After the Bay leaves dry plant your Succulents in the garden…

Copper backed Terrariums. Each globe contains its own world filled with nature’s goodness.

Planted in a {Shutter} Box. After the holidays- fill it in- create yet another shape with living growing (easy!) Succulents.

Hangin’ On!

August 9, 2012

These Staghorn Ferns are mounted a top re-purposed wood provided by our favorite wood shop just a few doors down. The outer two wood pieces were taken from a house re-model just around the corner from our studio. The other – and extra Walnut chunk from a table made by Pseudo Studio.

Since their mounting, they’ve departed the twenty one hundred block of Folsom street – and headed south. They all now hang out on the walls of a Veterinary clinic in San Jose- We’re happy they found yet another new home…
