Florist Edle Catharina Norman believes you can find beauty in your own backyard, even in winter.
She uses materials found in nature this time of year to create the holiday floral designs featured in her new book, Beautiful Winter. Some are enhanced by flowers and greenery available at florist shops.
Norman provides instructions for wreaths, garlands, Christmas tree decorations, centerpieces and other seasonal accents. Most are simple to create, so you’ll still have time for all that shopping and baking.
Beautiful Winter comes from Sellers Publishing and sells for $15.95 in softcover.
