She teaches floral design and the secrets of sugar flower artistry in Europe, Asia, South Africa, and North America.


"A Sweet Floral Life is pure magic. Page after gorgeous page, you feel as if you are spending the afternoon in Natasja's cozy home atelier. Brimming with history, wisdom, and inspiration, this book invites you to step into her flower-filled world of wonder and sumptuous beauty."--Ariella Chezar, author of The Flower Workshop and Seasonal Flower Arranging

"A Sweet Floral Life is full of fascinating historical information, exquisite photography, and endless inspiration. Beginning with the complicated colonial history of the Netherlands, Natasja relates her family's immigration from the sugarcane fields of Suriname to her current home in Amsterdam. She generously shares lessons in arranging live blooms from the market as well as creating the magical sugar flowers for which she is known the world over. This is an essential resource for flower and sweets lovers everywhere."--Frances Palmer, author of Life in the Studio: Inspiration and Lessons on Creativity

"Ever since discovering Natasja Sadi's extraordinary gifts as an artist, I have followed her work and her exploration of her beautiful city of Amsterdam with such joy. This is the book I had hoped for from Natasja, and I am so happy it is here! It is just what we need right now, to lift us up with its extraordinary beauty and inspiration."--Wendy Goodman, New York magazine
