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
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.
￼I 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.
Fresh 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.
