GOOD BOOKS - Decorate with Flowers Giveaway

decorate with flowers

It is our Birthday Book Giveaway Week! I love books, and my collection is pretty awesome if I do say so myself -  but I do need to qualify that statement as 95% of the books I own are all party, home and cooking/baking related. My favourite book I added to my shelves this year was Decorate with Flowers by Holly Becker and Leslie Shewring. It combines all of the things I love: great design, pretty homes, lovely things AND FLOWERS! 

Here is what amazon has to say about the book: 
This unique collaboration between international bestselling interiors author and stylist Holly Becker of the award-winning design blog, decor8, and Leslie Shewring, product designer, photographer and stylist, offers advice on selecting, combining and arranging flowers to best complement your decor. Decorate with Flowers contains a host of exciting ideas separated into eight gorgeous styles, showing flowers in relaxed, casual homes alongside those with some serious panache. Whether you are looking to invigorate a neutral interior or complement your already colourful space, you'll find a host of creative ideas. Holly and Leslie share tricks of the trade, with step-by-step projects and crafting ideas showing how to adapt and decorate containers in a creative way with ribbons and trims, paint, string and fabric. They also offer charming suggestions for creating pretty and approachable floral decorations for entertaining at home, from tea parties to cocktails with friends.

And as I love the book so much, (and waited for months and months to get them for our shop) I am going to be giving away a copy of the book to one lucky blog reader as part of our Birthday Celebrations. In fact all this week I am going to be giving away one of my favourite books!

1. Share what your favourite flower is, by commenting on our blog, facebook, or twitter page.
2. One entry per day.
3. All of the comments from the whole week will be entered into the draw - so you have a chance to win one of 7 book titles.

I just adore Roses!

I love proteas, to me they are the royalty of the flowers. They stand out and demand your attention. They are classy.

I adore Tulips. To me it is "lipsticks of the garden" .

I love carnations. All colours are so beautiful. We actually use carnations to beautify an Indian

Peonies. They are my absolute favourite! Although according to The Language of Flowers (by Vanessa Diffenbaugh) peony means anger ... not so sure if they are still my favourite though.
