These are some of the latest titles that have everyone here at Westmount Florist oohing and aahing:
Bringing Nature Home: Floral Arrangements Inspired by Nature by Ngoc Minh Ngo with arrangements by Nicolette Owen (2012)
The photographs and arrangements in this tome are simply beautiful. Inspired by nature and the seasons, its back-to-basics/natural approach to floral design has all of us in awe.
Helpful step-by-step photographs allow you to recreate these gorgeous arrangements at home.
The New-Fashioned Wedding: Designing Your Artful, Modern, Crafty, Textured, Sophisticated Celebration by Paige Appel and Kelly Harris (2012)
A must-have for any bride-to-be, this book is a great resource for anyone planning a wedding or event. What we love the most about it are all of the personalized touches and playful flower choices.
Cooking with Flowers: Sweet and Savory Recipes with Rose Petals, Lilacs, Lavender, and Other Edible Flowers by Miche Bacher (2013)
Although we would not recommend eating the flowers from our store (stick with organic blooms for your culinary feast), this is a gem of a book for anyone looking to combine a love of cooking with a love of flowers. Calendula cornbread? Pansy pancakes? Delicious!
