Product Details


“Bring a bit of beauty into your home with stunning floral arrangements….these desirable yet both simple and complex projects are paired with stunning photography. Chezar’s loose, natural arrangements are fabulous and sure to be popular. A must for flower lovers.”
Library Journal  (Starred Review)

“Offers practical guidelines alongside eye-pleasing color photographs….[An] essential flower-arranging guide.”
Publishers Weekly

“Ariella Chezar is a true floral icon. In The Flower Workshop, we are inspired by her love of nature and her respect for the inherent beauty of botanicals in every season. Ariella generously teaches the craft of floristry and its essential techniques, and she shows students of this book that floral arranging is a means of personal and artistic expression.”
—Debra Prinzing, author of Slow Flowers and The 50 Mile Bouquet

“These days it’s very fashionable for floral designers to grow their own blooms, forage for material, and create arrangements in a loose, organic style. But Ariella has been a master of this style for decades. An innovator rather than a follower, Ariella always creates floral designs that surprise and delight.”
—Kate Berry, creative director of Martha Stewart Weddings and editor-at-large of Martha Stewart Living

“Ariella has developed a new vocabulary of floral design, one based almost entirely on the natural gesture of a plant and the way it grows in the garden. She’s inspired me (and a whole school of floral design) to avoid rigid perfection, and to rely more on cultivating an artist’s intimate eye on the world of flowers.”
—Stephen Orr, author of The New American Herbal

“I am constantly inspired by the beauty of Ariella’s organic, creative, and thoughtful designs. Her arrangements have a sense of elegance and a natural aesthetic. Ariella’s touch is subtle, yet always innovative, and the artistry of her work is stunning without fail.”
Darcy Miller, editorial director of Martha Stewart Weddings

“I recommend The Flower Workshop…Chezar, whose creations have an easy sweetness, is an accomplished designer who can count the White House as a client. She likes to work, she says, quoting the poet Mary Oliver, until ‘I can hear the almost unhearable sound of the roses singing.’ Surely that’s reason enough to go snipping.”
New York Times
