These days it seems more and more of my blogging friends are publishing books! I’m so proud of all of them and it’s always good news for you, because I like giving away a copy of their books! Kelly from My Soulful Home recently launched her new book, A Year in Flowers. It’s filled with gorgeous photography and inspirational ideas. Following are photos from the book. To enter for a chance to win a copy of her new book, simply leave a comment at the end of this post. (This post contains affiliate links.)
Kelly’s book promises to help you “learn how to grow, care for, design and arrange 12 months of flowers.”
Kelly covers a range of topics in her book, including their history and why flowers smell.
Each month includes a seasonal arrangement with an easy tutorial. This rose-filled bouquet is perfect for the Christmas holiday.
You’ll find a variety of flower arrangements, from simple cottage-style bouquets to more elaborate.
I love that Kelly includes so many practical tips in A Year in Flowers, like how to force branches to bloom, or the best cutting garden flowers. You all know one of my favorites is zinnias!
In the pages of Kelly’s book, you’ll also learn why there are so few blue flowers. Did you ever wonder about that?
Perhaps most helpful in the book is the section about six essential rules for floral design.
I’ve always felt that arranging flowers should be simple – not complicated.
