Format: Hardcover Verified Purchase
I bought The Flower Recipe Book by Alethea Harampolis as a follow-up to Debra Prinzing’s Slow Flowers and The 50 Mile Bouquet. The title didn’t grab me, but I’m keen on the slow flower movement and, at a reasonable price, I figured I could always give it as a gift.

Holy hollyhocks, I was blown away. The book is so beautiful that I brought it to the office and set it out like a coffee table book (pod table book?) for my gardening work-friends. The steady stream of women gasping, omg-ing and getting a little flush was what led to our dubbing it “flower porn.”

The arrangements are exquisite, with styles ranging from funky to homey to elegant. The vases (or “vessels” as they’re called) are equally eclectic: classic urns, vintage jars, soup cans, bowls, pots, crystal and even string. No matter what your taste, there are arrangements to delight you. No matter how creative you are, there are ideas you would never dream up.

Many of my colleagues loved the recipes. That wasn’t a selling feature for me, but if you want how-to, there is a clearly written, well-illustrated instruction for each arrangement.

What I liked best was the choice of flowers—lilacs and daisies and lilies and hyacinth and tulips and cosmos—flowers you’d find in any neighbourhood garden. While the styles and vessels celebrate differences, the natural “self” of each ordinary flower is the book’s uniting theme, giving every arrangement both loveliness and a gentle, aching vulnerability.

This is the perfect hardcover gift book for gardeners, home décor enthusiasts, flower arrangers, slow flower fans or you, if you are any or all of the above.

If a more organic and natural look to floral arrangements without the use of a non compostable flower foam appeals to you then this is a perfect example. Great photography and step by step help. Tips on care and conditioning.

Great book.
Only wish they showed more step-by-step pictures for wreaths and boutonnieres.
Definitely a buy.
