As spring prepares to tempt you outdoors in the near future, flowers in print are already radiant. Because 8 March saw the launch of ELLE Flowers: an incredibly beautiful eruption of flowers that all subscribers will receive as a free gift this month with ELLE and ELLE Deco.
Leaf through spring
This colourful botanical supplement is packed with sunshine-filled flower articles. You can discover how you can bring your interior into bloom, and how nature serves as a source of inspiration for floral make-up ideas. Find out what bouquet you should choose for declarations of love, secret messages, congratulations and condolences. Five artists who are fascinated by the beauty of flowers show their work. Six artists are inspired by the magnolia… with magnificent results. You can see ranunculus, daffodils, snapdragons and hyacinths like you’ve never seen them before. And three florists allow their creativity free rein. And if you're inspired, you can copy the arrangements at home, because they include a step-by-step plan.
If you have a subscription to ELLE the special supplement will be coming through your letterbox on 4 April. If you have a subscription to ELLE Deco, you’ll receive it on 5 April.
You’ll probably run straight outdoors and carry on until you reach a sun-drenched spring patio, blooming park or lush flower meadow. The first rays of spring sunshine will be reading over your shoulder.
