Synopsis: A rose can be so much more than a rose!

In Roses for the Scented Room, best-selling author Barbara Milo Ohrbach presents entertaining, gift-giving and decorating ideas celebrating the beauty of roses.

Beginning with the basics, Barbara de-scribes the many varieties available, from old-fashioned roses to modern hybrids, and explains how to choose the best roses from a florist or from your own garden. She offers dozens of simple how-to ideas for using them in the home or giving them as gifts. "The Rose Pantry" opens with a selection of delectable recipes, including Jasmine Rose Tea, while the chapter "Lotions and Potions" includes a Rose-Petal Face Splash and Aromatherapy Oils. As the author of The Scented Room and Simply Flowers, Barbara is known for her potpourris, and here she provides her favorite rose mixtures. And in "Entertaining," she shares some clever creations, such as Rose Ice Cubes, a Rose Ice Bucket and rose-petal Wedding Confetti.

Barbara concludes her book with a comprehensive Source Guide, listing dozens of the best rose gardens around the world, along with her favorite flower-filled hotels, rose-garden tours, books, suppliers and catalogs. Filled with hundreds of gorgeous color photographs, Roses for the Scented Room is a glorious celebration of the grace and beauty of roses.

In Roses for the Scented Room, best-selling author Barbara Milo Ohrbach offers a bounty of inspiring uses for the world's favorite flower. With her trademark style and grace, Barbara brings together easy projects, tips and recipes for gift-giving, entertaining and deco-rating with roses. Also included is an international guide to her favorite rose gardens and the best rose-related products, books and catalogs. Lavishly illustrated with gorgeous color photographs, Roses for the Scented Room is a true bouquet of beautiful ideas for any rose lover.

Review: Whether you love roses for their delicate petals, astonishing range of colors, or sweet, seductive scent, Barbara Milo Ohrbach's gorgeous book, Roses for a Scented Room, will inspire you to fill every room in your house with a lovely array of edibles, decorations, and perfumed bouquets. A fascinating history of roses is included--from the ancient Romans to World War II, roses have been a most beloved flower. There's a wealth of practical advice here, from choosing and maintaining healthy plants to proper cutting technique (don't use regular scissors--they squash the stem).

Once summer arrives and your garden is bursting with blooms, you'll be amazed at just how many crafts await you! This goes far beyond the standard potpourri (although there is a great recipe for that too), diving into special drying techniques, concocting your own rosewater and hand cream, and even flavoring pound cakes and teas. The "Wedding Confetti" is an especially great idea now that traditional rice is so frowned upon--what could be prettier to throw than rose petals? The arranging section provides a wealth of new ideas and inspirations--as the author says, it's "hard to make roses look bad in any container"--but bringing out the best in your blossoms certainly can be fun and creative work!

Stunning photographs fill this book, making it a wonderful visual experience. You'll find it easy to add the essence of your summertime garden to your home year round. --Jill Lightner
