Florists, Anna Day and Ellie Jauncey sowed the seeds for their business, The Flower Appreciation Society, after working together in their local pub. On discovering their shared loved for all things floral, the pair have since built up quite a following for the breathtaking floral displays they create for weddings, events and parties from their Hackney-based studio. This month sees the launch of their first book, also dubbed The Flower Appreciation Society. Here they take you on an alphabetical journey from anemones to zinnia via the practicalities of creating garlands and selecting the perfect vase for your posey. Not only visually striking, the book also lets you in on some top tips for creating arrangements and the know-how to avoid drooping tulips.
Self-monikered ‘not your average florists’, backgrounds in illustration (Day) and textiles (Jauncey) have resulted in a brand all their own. Anna’s beautiful illustrations and their original eye for styling make this book perfect for budding florists, inspiration seekers or, simply, people with a passion for flowers.
Which just goes to show what you can conjur up whilst pulling pints.
