Decorate with Flowers

Decorate with Flowers

Spruce up your home and add a touch of colour with beautiful flower arrangements. Using homemade pots and quirky wreaths, Decorate with Flowers shows you how to be creative with blooms around the home and break away from typical vase displays.

Author's Holly Becker and Leslie Shewring offer their ideas, firstly on how to best make a basic flower arrangement, starting with a focal flower and adding secondary flowers, before building around the focal flower using contrasting colours. Then, the pair moves on to bigger arrangements before offering unique ways to display flowers, such as coat hanger wreaths, covered terracotta pots, floating flower centrepieces and pastel jam jars, all of which create eye-catching displays.

The simple, yet intriguing designs are perfect for when you entertain guests, want to invite spring and summer into your home or for breathing new life into discarded jars and pots. Get crafty and create colourful masterpieces at home with Decorate with Flowers.

Decorate with Flowers by Holly Becker and Leslie Shewring, published by Jacqui Small, is available to buy from all good book stores, RRP £20.
