Mother's Day Gift

4.16.2013


Who does not love gazing at beautiful flowers?  While I was looking through Flowers yesterday, my 15 year old daughter was mesmerized by these beautiful photographs, and sat and looked through the entire book with me.  That she would spend that time with one of my books was very interesting to me.  Her phone, which includes constant communication with her peers was just a foot away.  I already had thought about how it would make such a lovely gift for just about every female I know, and decided to share it with you as a perfect option for a Mother's Day gift.    






I've had the book now for a couple of weeks and I'm still finding myself opening it and just enjoying all the beauty.  Each page is 11x14, and there are 288 of them.  I saw it at Barnes and Noble for $85 and almost purchased it there.  I decided to look at the Amazon price from my phone.  It was $50, so I ordered it there instead.  Since I'm a member of Amazon Prime, I got free shipping with 2 day arrival. I had to wait 2 days, but I got it for $35 less.  Have you seen it yet?  It's Carolyne Roehm, so it's not any surprise that it's page after page of sublime lovliness.

You know I always struggle with what to get my Mom at Mother's Day. She's an avid gardener and I know she would love this book. Thanks for the idea, Jennifer. You have no idea how much stress you've saved me from!

These are stunning bouquets! They just make my heart sing-if only I could keep my pesky cat from eating my flowers...

Jennifer, I would be over the moon if I got this book for Mothers day.
I actually saw it at homegoods already, can you believe that? It was the same price as amazon, so it is good to know I did not pass up a good deal and I can get it at Amazon. It is by far one of the most beautifully photographed books I have seen in a long time. What a great idea for Mothers day gift. I will have to keep that in mind,
Happy Wednesday,
Kathysue

oh yes Amazon will always have a better deal by far. This book seems so beautiful! What a perfect coffee table book. When my husband and I began dating he sent me a book of flower arrangements similar to this but smaller...and the note said something to the effect of...so you always have fresh flowers at your bedside...so sweet...we lived in different cities at the time.xx

Andrea said...

All of these arrangements are so incredibly beautiful! I am adding this book to my wish list. :)

XOXO,
