Flower Arranging DVD by Flower Duet - Review & Giveaway

*Contest Closed*
A few years ago, I purchased a flower arranging book from a Southern Living party. I had high hopes that this book would turn me into a pro, but sadly it did not. The pictures inside sure were beautiful, but it wasn't the detailed instructional book I had hoped for. In fact, I'm not sure if I'd have been able to learn from any book, no matter how detailed. For me, there's no better way to learn than to sit and watch someone lead by example. With Flower Duet, I'm able to learn flower arranging tips and techniques while enjoying a latte on my sofa.

Casey and Kit are two adorable sisters that will show you step by step instructions on how to choose flowers, care for them and arrange them into beautiful bouquets and centerpieces. After watching their helpful DVD, I have the confidence to give this a go instead of circling around the floral section of my local produce market and leaving empty handed like I usually do!

BUY IT! If you're a bride on a budget, or you just want to learn the ins and outs of flower arranging, the Flower Duet DVD is a must have.

WIN IT! The Flower Duet team has generously offered one lucky reader their very own instructional DVD, How to create a European Wrap Bouquet!

To Enter: Visit the Floral Design Picture Gallery and tell me which arrangement is your favorite.

  3. I enjoy floral arrangements, but never learned how to do them. They would be great for showers, baby or wedding. Plus floral arrangements for gifts to friends and myself!

  6. I would love to learn this as I have for a long time been planning on doing a course but never get time to go to a course with a baby. I want to just make beautiful arrangements for the everyday as I think they are stunning to look at and smell. I would also love to make some flower arrangements for friends birthdays and baby showers.
