Fresh From the Field Wedding Flowers || Giveaway!
I know that some of you are new readers, (Hello there!) and may not know that I have a degree in Landscape, Nursery and Greenhouse Management and a certificate in Organic Agriculture from WSU... Go Cougs! So, I love watching things grow and creating gorgeous outdoor areas and working with flowers and plants of all kind. I thought I wanted to work in a nursery, and I did for 3 amazing summers, but during that time I realized I had some major love for the flowers and desperately wanted to create gorgeous bouquets and arrangements and garlands and flower crowns and anything else I could. So I started researching floral design and different florists. I came across the incredible world of farmer florists that I had no idea existed. And I became obsessed with this idea.
Floret. I was so unbelievably excited to find out that she was a florist that grew her own flowers, she had a blog and she was from Skagit Valley. 1 hour away from me! Its always amazing to find someone local. This discovery led me to many other flower farmers and floral designers and just fueled my desire to learn all I could.
I was so ecstatic to hear that Erin was working on a book with Lynn Byczynski for aspiring flower farmers, floral designers and DIY brides, Fresh From the Field Wedding Flowers. I fit 2 of those categories! I waited patiently for its release and was so grateful when they sent over 2 copies, 1 for me to read and review and 1 to giveaway to one of you! I read the whole book and watched all of the 75 minutes of video (yep! it comes with a DVD!) the day I got it.
They end it with information on a lot of the popular cut flowers and with a list of different farmers and florists across the country using and growing local flora.
