Welcome to the second phase of our Flower Chef tutorials! This next section of the book focuses on floral foam, and if you’re like me, you’ll be loving this new technique in no time!
Objects in these photos are simpler to arrange than they appear. I’m not going to pretend like I wasn’t intimidated by this arrangement at first glance. The cascading greens were haunting my dreams for a few days before I finally pushed up my sleeves and got started. And I’m happy to say that once I began, this arrangement – like most in The Flower Chef – was a pleasure to create!
I’ve never been to California but in my mind, it’s a magical place where the weather always cooperates, the backdrops are always picture-perfect, and the people always look trendy no matter what they’re wearing. It’s also apparently a place with more unique produce than I have available here in New York – as proven by this Flower Chef recipe!
Attention flower family – we have exciting news! We’re launching a new subscription program and we need your help to bring it to life. Introducing BloomsyChef, a monthly do-it-yourself subscription that will teach you the art of floral arranging just as we have been learning here.
We’re just days away from the official start of fall and my autumn-loving self is seriously giddy with excitement! When I think fall florals, I think a few things: wildflowers, sunflowers, and mums. This arrangement from The Flower Chef addresses the first of the three with a bouquet chock full of stunning flowers to satisfy all your fall cravings.
This bouquet from The Flower Chef speaks to my simplistic soul. Just three varieties of flowers in natural colors and four steps stand between you and your new favorite arrangement!
I don’t care how “basic” it is… there’s just something about peonies that makes me giddy! The ingredients for this bouquet were so stunning, I almost didn’t want to touch them in fear that I would somehow screw up and steal their beauty.
Are flower crowns still “in”? Because we’re seriously swooning over these beautiful headpieces! One major perk of being in the floral industry is that our “market research” is really, really pretty.
If you’re looking for a super simple arrangement to get started in floral design, this bouquet is the perfect pick! With only one type of flower and three simple steps, the Tulip Swirl arrangement is a safe bet for any skill level.
When I first got The Flower Chef to page through before we started this project, this arrangement was one of the first to grab my attention. The wooden flowers, pairing of elegant and rustic, and overall “Magnolia-esque” feel was one that I couldn’t wait to create.
