I was lucky enough to receive an early release of Baylor Chapman’s The Plant Recipe Book, and boy was it enjoyed around my house!
We are a household of succulent-lovers as well as upcyclers—so all the wonderful arrangements in this book were spot on. With a selection of plants, a lovely dish or pot from the local thrift store or yard sale….plus a little bit of love, a fancy table arrangement á la Sunset Magazine can be yours!

All of the 100 “recipes” (this slightly confused some of my friends into thinking they could eat the contents, but which was quickly clarified) are made with live plants, so the arrangements stay fresh for as long as you care for them. I love the breakdown pages where it shows you the individual “ingredients” for each arrangement.
Overall it was a very cool book to review, and it has already seen a lot of traffic from its place on my coffee table (next to some succulent arrangements, no less)!
