Lovely Flower Book: Decorate with flowers by Holly Becker & Leslie Shewring – Give Away!


Good Morning everyone,
I finished last week with a lovely flower book and I start this one with another one! Decorate with Flowers – CREATIVE IDEAS FOR FLOWERS AND CONTAINERS AROUND THE HOME by bloggers Holly Becker & Leslie Shewring.
Holly Becker is an American blogger living in Northern Germany, like me,  and blogging on the very successful blog decor8.  She also teaches blogging online on her course called blogging your way. I took part in that lovely course twice already and it was really inspiring and motivating. Leslie was also teaching in the first class I took, and really love her style.
I also met some of my fabulous blogger friends through this course, such as my friend Clara from the interior blog Tastesheriff or Corinne from the blog Emerald Green Interiors or Mel from Armoire Pegs and Casserole. I am digressing a little bit here but I wanted to take this opportunity to thank Holly for making bloggers connect and become friends!
So! Back to the book now! Holly and Leslie’s book presents a different approach to flower styling than the usual flower books written by professional floral designers and is very refreshing.
The book is beautifully laid out and photographed, with a lot of step-by-step instructions to make your own floral arrangements at home.
The book is split into several chapters: NATURAL, PASTELS & NEONS, MARKET, HAPPY BRIGHTS, COASTAL, NEUTRAL POP, GIRLY GLAM, BLACK & WHITE. So no matter what your interior looks like, you will find the perfect way to add some flowers in your home.
If you want to read more about the book, the authors and see some bonus material, check out the website dedicated to decorate with flowers.


Each chapter starts with a lovely mood board which is typical for Holly Becker with some lovely Liberty fabric of course!
At the end of the book, Holly and Leslie share their favourite flowers – and I was so happy to find some of my favourite flowers in the book too, such as astrantia,  scabious or delphiniums.

Yesterday I made one of the step-by-step projects from the book at home: a simple coat hanger wreath. What the you  think? Flowers don’t need to be in a vase to look good. I think this a simple, yet great idea for party decoration.



I am so happy that both the book’s German editor Callwey Verlag and the British editor Jacqui Small gave me the opportunity to GIVE AWAY ONE COPY IN GERMAN AND ONE COPY IN ENGLISH of this great book.

You can enter until Thursday 27 – 23:59 GMT.
Just leave me a message in the comment field and tell me if you would like to win the German or the British edition of the book.
I wish you all very good luck!
Talk to you soon,

PS: this book review was part of a German book tour and some of my blogger friends, have been writing some great reviews.

  2. Hi ELodie,

    j’aimerais beacoup gagner la version allemande du livre.
    Ton review donne vraiment envie de s’acheter ce joli livre…
    J’espère que tu continues à nous présenter des petites merveilles comme cela sur ton blog!


  3. Dear Elodie,
    I have been redecorating my new home for the past 2 months and am moving now. Unfortunatey I won’t be able to participate in the next edition of the 2flowergirls because of the work I have piled in my new home now… For further inspiration I’d love to have either one of the books, so I might be able to participate later on with the 2flowergirls…. I bet this book will get me going despite of all the dirt and chaos in the new home 😉
    XO, Anastasia

  4. Hi Elodie: First, your blog is just beautiful and I will be a loyal reader now! I was in the BYW course also and have made so many new friends…
    Yes, I would love the British edition of the book. Such gorgeous images indeed!
    Spring is slowly….slowly…coming to my part of the world!

  5. Dear Elodie, I am so much looking forward to spring here in Sweden. Yesterday I found the first violets in the woods and picked a teeny tiny bouquet. I can’t wait for my daily flower series to start with again… “Decorating with Flowers”, either in German or in English, would certainly be a wonderful addition to my garden and flower books and bring a lot of inspiration. Sending you a fresh breeze and bird twitter from Skåne, Juliane

  6. Hi Elodie!
    Firstly thank you so much for your lovely mention:) It’s so true that Holly has created such a wonderful and supportive community for us bloggers, we’re so lucky. Of course I would love to win the Decorate with Flowers book and in English please. Mel xx

  8. Hallo Elodie,
    danke für die zauberhafte vorstellung des buches. Wie du schon an meinem Kommentar erkennen kannst, würde ich gerne die deutsche Version gewinnen.


  9. Dear Elodie! What a great giveaway! I love flowers and to decorate with them. Spring is the perfect start for new and fresh ideas. I would love to recieve the german version.

    greetings from Lilli

  11. Great giveaway and blog! I would be thrilled with either copy and am in need of the inspiration! Gratefully, Lindsey

  12. I love the idea of this book and would love to win a copy of the British version — especially since I spend my summers over there… just feels right!!!!

  13. The pics are beautiful!
    I would love to have the English version, I want to decorate with flowers! <3

  15. What a great prize. I love Holly. I’ve taken her online classes, and she is such a wealth of knowledge. I would love to have the British version. Fingers crossed. Thank you!

  16. FIORI dall’ITALIA.
    LOVEly giveaway!!
    …I would love to win a copy of the British version… of this beautiful book!!!!
    (fingers crossed)

  17. Beautiful, beautiful, beautiful book! I adore flowers… and spring! And I’d love to have one of these spring-mood books (the English version).
    People out there… enjoy the flower season!! 😉

  18. As a stationista, stationery is my first love but FLOWERS are my passion. I would adore winning the British version of your new book. If you look at my Facebook you would see that I look like a frustrated flower shop. I know the names of every flower, read flower blogs and follow them daily. Thanks for the opportunity.

  19. Coucou Elodie,
    The book seems to be beautiful and inspiring! I think it could be a good way for me to start introducing some flowers at home 🙂
    If I win, I think the German version would be fine for me (if it’s the English one, I don’t say no either;) ).
    Have a nice day!

  20. Welch ein wundervolles Give-Away, liebe Elodie!
    Da ich Blumen liebe, sich meine Dekorations-Fähigkeiten lediglich sich auf das Arrangieren in Vasen beschränken, wäre ich über die vielfältigen Inspirationen aus diesem tollen Buch äußerst dankbar.
    Daher würde ich mich über einen Gewinn (der deutschen Ausgabe) riesig freuen!!!
    Ju (mammilade)

  21. What a lovely giveaway, Elodie. I’m going for the British edition since there is a choice. I’m more interested in the pictures than the text and it happened to me to buy Dutch books just for the pictures but since you talke about “nice reviews”, let’s try to make an effort 😉 I’ll keep my fingers crossed. Have a lovely day. I hope it is sunny in Hamburg. I can’t wait to see you next week 🙂 xx
