The Flower Recipe BookLast night I attend a flower design class and book signing offered by West Elm here is Portland. The Flower Recipe Book written by the magically creative owners of San Francisco’s Studio Choo, is a must buy for all of you DIY crafty people. This book is exactly what is says. . . a recipe book, giving you 100 floral bouquet outlines as well as detailed descriptions of 42 flowers. This book is simple to follow and the designs are so fresh and on trend.

The Flower Recipe Book ClassAlethea and Jill began the class with some design and structure basic then we all jumped in to create our own bouquet with a recipe for local Oregon flowers. It was such a treat to get the pros insights and feedback as we worked on our arrangements. The results were delightful! Here is the front and back of my bouquet that I photographed in my studio this morning.
