Overview

Brooklyn-based florist Ingrid Carozzi reveals her secrets for creating flower arrangements that are modern, original, and organic in style. Organized by season, the book presents simple step-by-step instruction (how to measure, cut, and place each bloom) for making more than 35 arrangements. Whether you want to learn how to work with chicken wire and tape to create a simple framework or try your hand at arranging delicate and oversize blooms, Carozzi offers a detailed tutorial on her tricks of the trade. Readers are encouraged to source, make, or upcycle unexpected containers, such as rough-hewn wooden crates or vintage pots, jars, and vases. Full of natural floral compositions that marry the modern with the rustic, Handpicked is a lushly photographed, practical guide to creating your own exceptional flower arrangements at home.

First-time author Carozzi, a professional florist and owner of Tin Can Studios in Brooklyn, here with writer Nyqvist, offers great advice and very doable projects. The section on how to prep and care for blooms is wonderfully detailed and easy to follow. Carozzi focuses on a smaller variety of flowers and foliage yet includes recommended substitutes. Arrangement projects are organized by season and contain a list of ingredients, materials, and tools. The focus on basics makes this an exceptional volume that is user-friendly and great for beginners. VERDICT This stunning, gorgeously illustrated book is highly recommended—just fabulous!

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!
