Overview

Some flowers are team players, content to let their gently expressive hues and textures take a supporting role in an arrangement or bouquet. Others have a domineering, outgoing nature and always insist on being the center of attention. Recognizing flowers’ differing personalities—and blending the meek and the bold together in unusual, romantic, and harmonious ways—is at the heart of Lucinda Rooney’s floral philosophy. 
 
In Bouquets with Personality, Rooney divulges her secrets: the materials and tools she’s most fond of using, her design influences, her theory of color, and, most important, her insightful “psychology” of the botanical realm. It’s that in-depth understanding of how flowers and plants convey emotion that makes this book such an informative and inspirational resource for beginning flower-arrangers, seasoned professionals, and anyone who just loves flowers. The pages are graced, throughout, by Mick Hales’ lovely photos of both individual flowers and completed bouquets.

Lucinda... You couldn't have made a more prefectly put together and wonderfully depicted description of who flowers are. It's fantastic! A true look into the lives of the flora we all take for granted. Thank you for showing flowers to the world, through your eyes. Tania Comeau xo
