I picked up The Flower Recipe Book by Althea Harampolis and Jill Rizzo of Studio Choo the last time I was at the book store. I love a good floral arrangement and have been wanting to learn how to make them myself. Is there an art or a craft that you really wish you were good at? I wish I was a painter or maybe a furniture maker but I'm pretty sure that's never going to happen. But flower arranging seems like one of those talents that I miiight just be able to get the hang of. Or at least enjoy the practice of.
I probably shouldn't have led with that amazing arrangement and professional photography from the book. Too late now; here are my arrangements in iphone photos...
It was slim pickins at the grocer, but I got 3 small bunches of flowers for $12, and then cut some greenery and a couple of flowers from our garden to add in. I'm not going to lie, I was pretty pleased with myself for this first go around. Don't think I'll be opening up shop anytime soon, but it was fun to practice and I got three little arrangements to pretty up the house. Not too shabby.
