Arranging and Crafting with Seasonal and Wild Blooms
Floral expert Chelsea Fuss shows you how to make beautiful, natural arrangements with foraged and seasonal greenery, branches, and flowersBased on her extraordinarily popular flower-arranging workshops, Chelsea Fuss's first book combines an alluring sense of place with everything readers need to know to forage, gather, and arrange fresh and dried botanicals. Each arrangement is addictively easy to make, and the featured centerpieces, wreaths, garlands, and bouquets are designed to bring the perfect amount of scent, color, and atmosphere to a room.The book features 28 eco-friendly floral projects, all using natural materials in lieu of floral foam and wire. Each arrangement is accompanied by foraging tips that can be applied to different locales.Photographed in the author's small village in Portugal, the book overflows with atmospheric images of flowers and foliage in the landscape to inspire readers to walk local trails (even if that just means the stalls of a city market) and gather ingredients in a pastime that is as much self-care and meditation as it is a practical pursuit.
Writer, instructor, and Oregon native Chelsea Fuss learned flower arranging in London. She has styled florals for Kinfolk, New Balance, Schoolhouse Electric, and Bon Appetit. Fuss lives in Portugal.
