Seasonal Flower Arranging: Fill Your Home with Blooms, Branches, and Foraged Materials All Year Round Hardcover – 21 May 2019
This lavishly photographed book from renowned floral designer Ariella Chezar provides step-by-step instructions for 39 seasonal floral arrangements and projects that celebrate the splendor of flowers, the bounty of the changing seasons, and the wild beauty of nature in your home.
Just as fruits and vegetables taste best when they are harvested locally and seasonally, flowers that are picked close to home and at their peak reflect a true connection to time and place. Nature does not deliver its harvest all at once--each season has its stars and Ariella Chezar, author of The Flower Workshop, shows you how to make the most of them. Seasonal Flower Arranging follows Mother Nature's lead to create dazzling arrangements from the distinctive gifts of the changing seasons, from a charming spring bouquet for Mother's Day to a bold garland for a summer wedding, and from a bounteous Thanksgiving table to a wintery holiday wreath. There are arrangements for seasonal holidays, special occasions, or just everyday life featuring tulips, roses, peonies, dahlias, and other flowers that are easily found at farmers' markets, local shops, or grown in your own backyard. The book includes detailed instructions on how to re-create 39 floral designs, plus the inspiration and techniques to allow you to create your own original art out of nature.
--Erin Benzakein, author of Floret Farm's Cut Flower Garden "Vividly photographed and easy to follow, Ariella's arrangements and guidance highlight the floral seasons in the most beautiful down-to-earth way. This book is a must have for every flower lover and florist out there."
--Alethea Harampolis, coauthor of The Flower Recipe Book, Branches & Blooms, and Harvest "[Ariella Chezar's] new book, Seasonal Flower Arranging, provides valuable tips and how-to's for creating her lush, artistic style."
--Flower magazine "The tome veritably explodes with color photographs of whimsy and imagination...A pioneer in the farm-to-vase movement, Chezar will get readers arranging for an Easter parade or garden arch, an Indian-summer tribute or a Hanukkah table."
--Booklist (Starred Review) "An elegant walk through the seasons punctuated by her inspired creations....The combination of instructions, photographs, and elegant prose makes for a delightful companion for gardeners, florists, or armchair naturalists."

A lot of these arrangements look scraggly too. I'm ok with things being a little less formal, but some of these arrangements just aren't well-balanced looking from a design perspective. And her colors - also I don't care for. She uses what she calls "tone-on-tone" color schemes, what I have always known as monochromatic and frankly, a little boring to my eye. I like pops of color. Personal preference.
This book also has basic floral arranging information such as how to use florist wire and tape, information which is readily available for free on-line. There are no arrangements in here that I want to make. I give it three stars because like I said, I like the IDEA of it and I don't want to poo poo it too much, but it's a big MEH for me.
