Must have gorgeous book on floral design
I’m so excited to share this news with you today. Kelly of My Soulful Home is releasing her first book today! Her book is on floral design. She’s been working on it all year, and now it’s being released.
Before we get to Kelly, I wanted to let you know that the Dash and Albert rug design challenge ends tomorrow. I’m no longer referring to this as my design. It’s OUR design. It’s going into the final stretch! I’m only in the running because of you. Seriously!!!

We won’t talk about how pretty she is, because frankly it’s annoying. Just kidding! She’s adorable inside and out. The book shows you how to create 12 floral designs, one for each month. As Kelly says… “Don’t spend your life waiting for someone to send you flowers. Make your own arrangements”. With her book you can do just that !
I love arranging flowers, so this is my kind of book. Kelly is a big gardener, so she knows a lot about flowers too. Her book is full of real-live tips for the care of flowers, but also she’s added some interesting stories, like her time spent living in London after college but before law school.
It’s always fun using a beautiful and unique vase to make a statement. She covers supplies you’ll need for your arrangements and how to keep those darlings looking fresh as long as possible!!

She also gives you plenty of ideas on what to use for vases. There are so many choices! She also shows flowers in an oatmeal can! I did the same thing one time, only I didn’t use a glass jar inside the oatmeal can, so the water leaked out. Wish I had read her book before. I could have avoided that mess.
One of my favorite arrangements was done in a teacup! It’s so pretty!!!
Kelly knows her stuff for sure. And she couldn’t have a better side kick. Here’s Emmett helping with the flowers.
Arranging flowers is such a super fun experience. I highly recommend buying flowers for yourself and arranging them yourself. For inexpensive but gorgeous flowers, try your local Trader Joes. (Not sponsored, just a happy customer.)
