As I shared in my most recent e-newsletter (sign up here if you are not yet on the list) when I’m not working in the garden, I’m cranking out new resources for fellow flower fanatics. One of those new resources is a little book focused on utilizing local flowers in wedding designs: Fresh from the Field Wedding Flowers

Print versions of Fresh from the Field Wedding Flowers came out a few weeks ago and I’m delighted to announce that it is now available as an e-book for the iPad, Kindle and Nook!

This little gem is loaded with beautiful photos of wedding bouquets made by “farmer florists” and floral designers utilizing local, seasonal flowers.

Both the e-book and the print version of the book include:

  • Photo essays and practical tips for using locally grown flowers for DIY weddings
  • Quick tips on how to grow more than 100 varieties of flowers and foliage used in wedding florals
  • PLUS a bonus disc containing 75-minutes of video tutorials where I demonstrate how to create a classic European hand-tied bouquet, a large altar arrangement, a lush centerpiece and an adorable corsage and boutonniere.158_large-3I was thrilled to have the opportunity to collaborate with Lynn Byczynski, author of the amazing book The Flower Farmer to create this new resource.Lynn and I are both passionate about local flowers and were eager to create a basic design guide to support the growing local flower movement. This resource is specifically geared towards:
  • DIY brides and eco-conscious couples committed to having a greener wedding celebration;
  • Flower farmers and passionate gardeners seeking to develop basic floral design skills in order to
    utilize their flowers in essential wedding elements;
  • Floral designers interested in tapping the locally-grown trend and incorporating more local,
    seasonal blooms in their design work.floret150finalFresh from the Field Wedding Flowers offers inspiring, yet practical and accessible ways to create beautiful magazine-worthy bouquets using sustainable,seasonalblooms. It is a must-have for your resource library.Be sure to connect with Fresh from the Field Wedding Flowers on Facebook to get updates, information on book related events and more! We’ll be rolling out some exciting special features related to the book later this spring that you won’t want to miss!

    Dear Erin and fellow contributors, I purchased the book the day it was available. Have already used it multiple times as resource. It is and will remain on the top of my very important stack of books! Love it… Thanks for all you do…

    I just ordered mine last night! I can’t wait for it to arrive! As always, Erin, thank you for being my guiding light! I so appreciate your willingness to share your experiences with a budding (yes, pun intended) flower farmer. THANK YOU!

    Beautiful bouquet!!! I know the book will be a success because from what I’ve seen ,– you pour your whole heart and soul in all that you do. It shows! Floret has opened my eyes to a world that I never realized was out there. Local Farmer-florists. When I was caught up in the wedding world, — I ordered everything in. That’s just what we all did here. I wish I’d known all these wonderful things earlier in my life. Semi-retired now, and going to try to grow and sell bouquets on the SMALL scale of things. Thanks, Erin. Again,–love what you’re doing!!!!!!!!
