Simple, Sustainable, and Seasonal Flower ArrangementsBy Ingrid Carozzi, photographs by Paul Brissman and text by Eva Nyqvist
Brooklyn-based florist Ingrid Carozzi reveals her secrets for creating flower arrangements that are modern, original and organic in style. Organised 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.
