"I received this book from Blogging for Books for this review."
I love flowers, and after watching my mom make these beautifully gathered floral arrangements that would enlighten a table full of people as well as gifts to give, I knew I need to learn to make some myself! The book that really helped me get an idea of how to do just that, with detailed instructions and clear visuals would be the book known as Martha's Flowers. It's not only full of clever tips and ideas, but it's including those freshly grown from the garden blooming plants.
So I can go from growing to building a full beautiful bouquet to place on my table or inside a room. It's all by the help of Martha, who really has an eye for creativity and of course, I always admired her magazines, TV shows and decorative eye on all types of creative ways to entertain and DIY things. So to have this book and use it to help me, it's just wonderful!
It really allows me to take what I already do, by using flowers and plants from my garden and learn to build with those materials to create a gorgeous floral arrangement. The details are very easy to follow and the images make it perfect for a visual learner like myself. I really adore the different types of plants used to create each bundle. Even if I don't have those exact plants, I can easily use different plants to gain that gorgeous gather and just know how to make one, by using the steps inside this book. So it really helps build skills like a florist.
What I really adore about the book is the beautiful flowers in each photo, real flowers! It's just gorgeous what a small mixed amount of flowers used can create. Plus, with a blend of different types, it can even look out-of-this-world, brilliant! So I honestly think spending some time to read this book, will not only help me but honestly just inspire me to grow and create a few to gift others and add to my own kitchen table. Finally, I love this book and what it's helping me to accomplish!
