I didn't know a book full of pretty pictures of flowers could be so boring. Chezar clearly knows what she is talking about when it comes to arranging flowers but this book didn't really resonate with me. I guess I'm not destined to become a florist. I was expecting this to be more of a how-to book on floral arrangements with basic starter information. I was looking for general rules for floral arrangements and a guide to different flowers, how to use them, and what flowers were best for what I didn't know a book full of pretty pictures of flowers could be so boring.

Instead I got a book that is mostly, "here is a picture of a floral arrangement and here are the steps you take to recreate this exact thing." It's very detailed and great if you want to make the floral arrangements in the book but it doesn't teach you anything about making your own.

This book is full of photos and basic tips on creating your own flower arrangements using flowers from your garden. My favourite section has pages for many of the popular flowers (hydrangeas, dahlias, clematis, peonies and more) as well as branches (crabapple and dogwood), sharing tips on how best to handle them. It has instructions on making bridal bouquets too.

Beautiful pictures. I took the book out just to get ideas on things to grow in my yard this year, which it was great for, even though it is clearly geared toward those who love cut flower arrangements. Her arrangement recipes, directions, and photos are amazing.

A beautiful hard-bound book printed on thick paper with lush color photographs of arranging flowers. Types of flowers, tools to use, and how different types of vases complement different materials. There are of course some projects to get you started, but the lessons are easily applicable to whatever you can get your hands on.

I had professional interest in flower decor and what goes into the making of a stunning floral decor piece of any scale. The flower workshop is a beautiful book with eye catching illustrations. As a coffee table book it will be a visual treat in any house. The instruction and the sheer basic, working practical know;edge of everything flowers is a blessing and comes in very handy when working with flowers.

While there are great things about this book (the pictures are wonderfully inspiring), there are others that make it more of an "one day maybe i can do this" book. Not all of us have the ability to purchase a farm to provide materials or the ability to access a flower market. If you don't have access to these materials the book is not as helpful to you because it is more of a step by step to recreate.

What a lovely book! The pictures are so pretty of all the different flowers. Granted I am limited in going to the flower shop where I live but this book has good ideas. There are explanations on how to create a good bouquet and is organized by colors. There are also good examples of using foliage and flowers as decor. How to buy flowers and when to buy flowers is also helpful!

This is a beautifully done book! It's hardbound with beautiful, colorful flowers adorning the front and an embossed title. The pages are top quality and contain a LOT of pictures of flowers and flower arrangements. I love how there are pages that show flowers that fit with a certain color scheme and also names those flowers. I love how she illustrates the use of branches and fruit to complement an arrangement. She also has a seasonal flower guide.

Author Ariella Chezar shares a host of great tips, and I love how she references Dutch floral paintings, of which I happen to be very fond. In fact, most of the arrangements in here are worthy of a still life painting. And as someone who doesn't have a lot of experience in this area, it was good for a beginner.

But mostly, I admit I just like looking at the pictures ;)

I reviewed this book for NetGalley.

Ms. Chezar, along with the photography of Ms. Michaels, has created a beautifully illustrated and well written book about flower arranging.

I began reading the book, expecting the standard flower arranging kind of book - dry and detailed.

This book begins with the artistic approach to floral arrangements and Ms. Chezar's approach and philosophy of floral arrangement. Her approach is one of combining natural found elements (leaves, branches, etc.) with flowers. Quite a welcome change from the usual flora composition.

Her instructions for creating floral arrangements and compositions are very clear, concise and well illustrated by Ms. Michaels' lovely illustrations. Even a klutz such as myself could create a lovely floral composition after reading this book.

Very well done and an enjoyable read! ...more

It is rich with information, rich with flowers, rich with quality. I haven't said it enough, but this is an exquisite book.

On the downside, I'm not an expert when it comes to flowers and I find that it is more geared to someone who already knows quite a bit about flowers. Those who have a strong desire to learn more, especially when it comes towards arranging them. I have a friend who is like that and would devour this book from beginning to end.

I remember taking a flower arranging class during my undergrad and it being loads of fun, so I was excited to receive this book to review. Bottom line, this book is gorgeous (!!) with pages of pictures of various flower arrangements and color schemes that had my yearning to go out to the market to buy flowers to decorate my house with (which I am unashamed that I actually did a few times).

I accepted it long ago that I didn't need a loved one to buy me flowers... I just needed this book instead! One of the best things to do when receiving a instructional book to review is to actually complete one or two of the recipes that the book suggests and afterwards, flower arranging may become a new stress relieving hobby. Not only did I learn color schemes and which flowers suited for the best moods, but also seasons that flowers grew, the math that goes into planning an arrangement (and not just the budget, there's symmetry to be had when it comes to roses!) and how to manipulate flowers, fruit and even birds nests into works of art.

I have made it a goal the past few years to learn how to arrange flowers, but I never seem to make it. This book was an incredible one to read, because Chezar's passion for flowers as well as incredibly approachable advice really help you dive into the idea of arranging flowers. She gives very helpful insight into choosing a palette, arranging by size, working in rules of three, tools you need, etc. She even goes so far as to share which flowers come in various colors seasonally.

So you can search for yellow spring flowers, and not feel like you might get to the market to purchase your flowers... only to find out they aren't in season. Chezar takes it one step further in showing you specific arrangements, and exactly how to reproduce them. I think this is an incredibly helpful addition to the book, that allows beginners and experienced floral arrangers alike the chance to copy a successful arrangement. The last thing I want to note, is that this book is absolutely gorgeous. It is filled with passion, understanding, helpful advice, as well as some of the most beautiful floral arrangements and photography I have ever seen. If you have been looking for a source on flower arranging, I highly recommend this one! ...more

However, I think beginners might struggle a little with only written directions; there are very few step by step photographs; most projects have just the image of the finished design.
The materials required for each design are laid out clearly, and Chezar helpfully gives suggestions for suitable alternative flowers. A seasonal availability list is also provided; as well as sections including tools and necessary equipment, basic techniques, colour theory, foraging and sourcing flowers.

Overall, I've learned some new techniques and understand more about this lovely natural style of floral design. I do feel like I'll use this book more for inspiration rather than directly following the instructions; I love just flicking through all the stunning images.

I liked this book, with reservations. I wanted to learn how to arrange the kinds of floral displays that are popular now, and the author seems to do this effectively, though I haven't been able to try out any of the arrangements I'm interested in. For one thing, the particular designs I'm attracted to require dozens and dozens of flowers, and so the cost is prohibitive. Many of the flowers she uses are not available to me in Rochester, NY, although she does helpfully list substitute flowers. I liked this book, with reservations.

This isn't her fault, it just happens that what's in vogue now is expensive arrangements with many, many blooms. Her instructions do seem a bit sketchy, but since I haven't tried them they may be sufficient. The other criticism I have is the quality of the photographs. I really dislike the cover - those pinkish blooms on a black background look awful - I see dozens of better flower photos on my Instagram feed. A few of the photos seem too dark, so that one can't really see definition, which is a problem if you're trying to copy an arrangement. This many not be a problem of the original photos, it may be a printing/repro problem. Still, this is an issue, I think, for an art/craft book of high quality. So, I like the book, but with some strong reservations. ...more

I might be the odd-ball out because I didn't pick this book out so I could learn more about flower arranging. Instead, I requested it hoping to learn more about flowers as well as use the arrangements (both bouquets and table top) as inspiration for my watercolor painting practice.

This book blew me away. The two page photo spreads were not only vibrant and clear, but the arrangements are truly gorgeous. The art of flower arranging is now on my radar of skills to acquire, while my floral watercolors happen to be exploding in their variety.

In looking over the physical layout of the "lessons", I realized the necessary flowers, fillers, and tools is clear and concise (often the flowers are the most expensive part). I found some of Chezar's tips really insightful (obviously she has amazing experience), but I was daunted at the task of acquiring some of the flowers. I did realize substitution is simple and doable, making your at-home flower arranging experience budget friendly on top of everything. I am looking forward to hosting a get together so I can put my skills to the test!

Upon receiving this book, I immediately poured through it, intrigued by the beautiful close up shots of de-stemmed flowers amongst reclaimed barnwood and so on. On this note, I would categorize this as more of a younger generation flower guide; it's certainly not fussy and it has a more rustic, Brooklyn hipster vibe to it than anything I'd seen prior. Chezar breaks down each season by which flowers it spurs naturally and then offers arrangement with the flowers to highlight the time. The book is divided into sections sorted on style of flower arrangement. There's a wide array of arrangements for vases, table decor and bouquets. One of my favorite ideas was her various flower chain ideas in marigolds, which seemed like a perfect wedding adornment over a gazebo or pergola. All in all, the book is informative without being too text heavy, with beautiful, close up photos to illustrate each arrangement.
I wish she had dedicated more space to growing flowers outside of a list of which she grew and recommended, but alas, perhaps that will be for her next book. I would recommend this book and think it's a wonderful introductory for younger individuals who love flowers. It's certainly inspiring and informative to help people go beyond the usual supermarket and florists arrangements. A perfect gift!

Whether you’re a amateur gardener or avid floral designer this book will surely be an inspiration. The photos of Chezar’s arrangements are nothing short of stunning, providing a glimpse of the beauty found in nature all around us.

While I’ve only been gardening for a few seasons now and haven’t explored much with flowers beyond a few window boxes and decorative pots, The Flower Workshop has me giddy for spring (as if my February cabin fever wasn’t bad enough already). Chezar brilliantly displays perfect combinations of colors and textures. Her arrangements are wonderfully unique and are full of endless, eye catching details.

I appreciated the introduction on the tools necessary to get started. Ariella emphasizes what works for her without creating a “must buy list” that would break the bank for any new enthusiast. The Seasonal Flower Guide at the back of the book will also be a valuable resource as I get my feet wet in floral arranging.

While the informative excerpts and the descriptions of her arrangements are emotional and personal, as an amateur I’m afraid I will need to supplement the steps in the book with additional assistance from Pinterest. Unfortunately there are few step by step instructions that include enough visuals for me to attempt to recreate Chezar’s’s masterpieces. The beautiful collections, however, will certainly serve as my inspiration and The Flower Workshop has found a new permanent residence on the top of my coffee table.

I was excited to have the opportunity to read and review this book. While Im not exactly an accomplished gardener, I do enjoy creating festive wreaths and dried floral arrangements and was ready to learn all about fresh flower arrangement.

First off, there are painfully few step by step photos in this book. Less than five photos are step by step. The majority of the photos are of completed arrangements with only informational text and a materials list in the sidebar.

I’m sure these floral arrangements are beautiful. However, the photos aren’t the quality you’d expect in a book that depends greatly on its visual appeal. The paper is matt and the photos severely suffer because of it. The colors aren’t nearly as vibrant as I’d hoped. The resulting photos are grainy and at times seem out of focus. Glossy paper would have been a much better choice.

I’d like to say that I’d at least found the information in "The Flower Workshop" valuable, but I honestly can’t. It reads like a somewhat dry instructional manual. Passages like, “Once you choose a basic color--in this case yellowy peach--search for a variety of blossoms that fit this category. The challenge is to find flowers that take your basic color and run the scales with it, from taupe-yellow to butter, from gold to cream, from citrus to speckled,” are the norm and don’t come across as inspirational at all. In fact, I found them downright boring.

As much as I hate giving a poor review to any book, I’m going to give "The Flower Workshop" just three stars.

Review from Jeannie Zelos book reviews

Genre:  non fiction, crafts and hobbies

 I adore flowers, and even as a child I loved to forage in the garden making posies all year round and pick wildflowers on the way home from school, buttercups, milk meadow, kingcups and ferns from the commons and ponds, queen anne’s lace, pink clover, campions, wild scabious from the roadsides, bluebells and primroses from the woods, and of course tree branches with blosson or new leaves, and honeysuckle, wild roses etc. so when I saw this I had to have it!
Its a fabulous read for those who love flowers, not just for arranging but for themselves. There’s advice on growing them if you have space, buying wholesale at flower markets if you need large quantities, choosing best blooms from flower shops, or as I  did scavenging and using what’s seasonal. ( Of course conservation and legislation need to be kept in mind when doing that too, something that bever occurred to me as a child, though even then I only picked what was plentiful).
 It also covers how best to make arrangements last, what containers to use to show flowers to their full beauty, how to match colours avoiding those awful clashing arrangements we see. Why on earth do people want vividly dyed artificial colours when there are so many beautiful natural ones. My heart drops when presented with a bunch of lurid fluorescent pink, bright unnatural blue and acid yellow chrysanthemums. Its lovely to get flowers – and for me they’re a present always welcome - but the first thing I have to do when given these is separate the colours and try to tone them down with pastels in complementary colours and lots of soft greenery....I swear the garden cringes when it sees me approaching with the secateurs yet again. Now I’ve read this book I’ve lots more ideas too ;-)

The illustrations are drool worthy, gorgeous lush towering arrangements down to showing the beauty of flowers as individuals. I found it so great to see more unusual flowers used, along with tree branches and strands of ivy and other trailing plants. There really is an arrangement for every occasion here – from a simple get well posy for a friend, to lavish wedding or party full scale arrangements.  
I read this on my kindle fire so could see the photos in full colour, but like most non fiction books I really think this would be best appreciated as a traditional print book, where the pages can be flicked through and the photos in much larger size show the details better.
 
Stars: Five, a great gift for any flower lover or buy as a treat for yourself!
