This book completely changed my perspective on floral arrangements. I went from just seeing flowers as something you buy at the super market to seeing the complete work of art that they are. Ingrid does a good job at creating stunning pieces of art but also easy for everyone to re-produce! I love that there are so many different styles in this book too. If you're looking for a therapeutic activity to do on a sunday or something to do at your next girls night-- this book is for you! Trust me, you're friends will be so impressed at your arrangements! Bonus-- this looks AWESOME on a coffee table. Gorgeous flowers, helpful explanations, and a great addition to the interior design of your home, WINNING!
