Let's talk about fresh flowers. There's something about going to your local floral shop, picking up a few blooms to brighten your day. They add a certain warmth and happiness into a home, so it doesn't come as a surprise that I like to treat myself with fresh cuts every now and then.
The lovely Tara Hurst lent me this book, Decorate With Flowers, written by Holly Becker and Leslie Shewring. It is not only a visual delight, but it has so far encouraged me to be even more creative in how I style my flowers at home. Overall, I loved the book - from the concept, design, photography and the bountiful of ideas it entails! There's no need for you to be an expertise in floral arrangements to pick up a copy of this book. Ps. It would make a great Mother's Day gift too!
There will be a launch party in Vancouver at The Cross, so if you get a chance to go, RSVP here. I certainly wish I could be there. I may have to simply throw a floral party myself with some friends this weekend!
A few of the pages were actually shot at Tara's beautiful studio so I thought I'd share them with you!
