Roses for the Scented Room: Beautiful Ideas for Entertaining, Gift-giving and the Home Reviews
Beautiful book, I ordered this from another seller and it was in terrible shape, so I ordered another one
I adore Barbara M. Ohbach 's books. This one is no exception with its beautiful photography and creative inspiration.
Like the other books that have been put out my Ohrbach and Milo this book is joy! It is filled with beautiful photos of ways to use one of natures most beautiful creations - the rose. It includes recipes for things such as teas and potpourri and includes other ideas for lovely items that make perfect gifts or decorations for your home. The imformation is presented in a simple and thoughtfull manner so that it is relatively simple to complete the projects shown. The ideas are realistic - they are things that you really would do . There is also good information on how to care for roses in the garden and as well as great arrangement suggestions. All in all I really love this book. I'll be ordering at least 2 more since it will be the perfect mothers'day or easter gift. A must have for all of those who appreciate the beauty of roses!
I love this book. If anything its fun to just look at. There is some history, some info on types of roses, gathering roses, crafts, products you can make with roses (that are simple), and decorating/arranging...etc, etc! It's just filled with lots of great stuff. It's fun to read and lovely to look at!
