    Next Monday I start my floral design diploma class at the Texas A&M Benz School of Floral Design…I am beyond excited!!

    On that note, I’ll have to find this book especially if it has instructions to assist me in my new venture.

    Thank you for sharing!

    Hello! I just discovered this wonderful blog by chance! And to say that I really like. Sounds like a good professional and I see he has very good hand for the flowers! I became a follower of her blog, I’m a florist (in Spain) and I love my job! We still have the blog not long ago, but little by little we will improve.

    I entered into the drawing, then of course, I would love to win this book, which seems pretty good. (This weekend I was in Portugal and I bought two more flower arrangements).

    Best regards, and the next will soon be back to visit.

    Looks like an awesome book!
    This is my favorite blog that I go to each morning.
    Really enjoy it!

  5. That looks like a beautiful book.

  6. Wow- what a gorgeous book! I would love to add it to my collection. Thank you for posting such wonderful giveaways!

  7. I LOVE this book! I check it out from the library every winter for some much needed inspiration. I would love a copy of my own 🙂

  8. Steph says:

    I agree with all the previous commenters – that looks like a beautiful book full of inspiration!

  9. Mimi says:

    Beautiful book…and I’m one of your newer fans!

  10. Jenny N says:

    I’ve got all my books from you displayed on my new shelves here in Seattle. Makes me happy. You don’t have to enter me in this drawing though.

  11. Pick me pick me! I love new books!

  12. Alicia says:

    Oh it’s a fantastic book! Here in Madrid it’s difficult to find this kind of books, no much floral design around here :(. Don’t know if this giveaway is worldwide, although If I win I will be pleased to pay mail fares.

  13. Looks like a beautiful book. Photographs alone are worth an entry. I taught myself floral design from books 25 years ago – heavy on the elements of design, light on the aesthetics! Times change, and now I tell my new designers that it’s good to know the “rules”, but the only rule I never break is “Stop before you think you’re finished.”

  14. That would make a great book to add to the inspiration collection!

    Amy….I have been in the throes of moving house, and just checked your wonderful blog at 12:01pm CDT!

    kjh: you will LOVE Benz School. I attended in August 2004; all of my mentors went to Benz School. If you’re in Texas and serious about a floral career, find a way to go there! In 2004 one lady had come all the way from Singapore to attend. It’s that good! Good luck with your studies, kjh!
