A few days ago, we “sat down” (via email) with Carly Cylinder, the author of The Flower Chef and the “Julia” to our Julie-and-Julia-inspired project. It has truly been a pleasure getting to know Carly through this project, and now it’s time to share the wealth with you!
If you’ve ever wondered how florists get succulents to stay perfectly placed in bouquets, this post is for you! They say the third time’s a charm, and this bouquet certainly re-ignited my love for learning from The Flower Chef.
This time, we’re working with another difficulty of 2 from the book: the “Light and Lovely” bouquet. The arrangement turned out beautiful, despite my initial insecurities – and even taught me a couple life lessons along the way. Let’s get to it!
Today is the big day… tackling the first “Recipe” from The Flower Chef, the Grocery Store Spiral. Let’s jump right in. I’ll show you the steps and tell you what I experienced along the away: the good, the bad, and the beautiful results!
Whether you’re a bride-to-be in search of a DIY, a hostess looking for a way to provide your guests with a wow factor, or a budding event planner, follow along to learn the art of floral arranging with me!
