If you’ve been reading BNOTP for a while, you may remember when I made rose-scented sugar and shared the recipe here on the blog. The book I’m sharing today is where I found that special recipe.
In the BNOTP Library: Roses for the Scented Room: Beautiful Ideas for Entertaining, Gift-giving and the Home
Author: Barbara Milo Ohrbach
3 Things I Like About This Book:
- If you ever see a book for sale by Barbara Milo Ohrbach, buy it on the spot. I have five of her books and love them all. The photography in this book, as in all of Barbara’s books, is beautiful!
- You’ll find directions for making the scented sugar I made in the post, How to Make Rose Scented Sugar, inside this book. You’ll also find information for making rose-scented potpourri, sachets, honey, talcum powder, rose-water, Strawberry-Rose Sorbet, Rose Ice Cubes and many other lovely rose-scented concoctions.
- There’s a chapter showing how to arrange roses in vases and other containers. Chapters are titled: All About Roses, Selecting, Drying, The Rose Pantry, Lotions and Potions, Arranging, Potpourri and Sachets, Silk and Dried Decorations, Entertaining and Rose Gardens Around the World.
* This book contains so many wonderful tips for recipes and entertaining, I’m filing it under that category as well as under the gardening category. You’ll find other books I’ve featured under those two categories here:
