My book review this month is A Tree In The House: Flowers For Your Home, Special Occasions & Every Day by Annabella Hickson.
The book provides ideas and instructions for celebratory botanical installations and arrangements, covering beautiful, seasonal bouquets, flowers for friends, table and overhead arrangements, and flower arrangements for special occasions. The instructions are wonderfully simple and cover everything from the perfect flower-to-vase proportions to how to create an overhead floral installation, and the book particularly focuses on foraged and locally and seasonally grown plants. All the floral arrangements are as zero waste as possible and include tips like how to transport flowers in vases (instead of plastic) with no water spills, and how to create a structured arrangement without floral foam.
A Tree in The House celebrates the simple, natural beauty that flowers bring to the home, with flower arranging that is in sync with nature.
Full of useful information and gorgeous photography and to be read the only way with a cup of tea and a slice of cake curled up in a deep armchair.
