Editorial Reviews

Library Journal
These books contain several approaches to flower arranging. Cindy Smith is a West Coast designer for celebrity events and her book is full of photos of arrangements made for the stars, with tips on re-creating elements of these arrangements. They are elegant, easy, and surprisingly inexpensive. Smith (Making Classic Wreaths) provides detailed instructions for many contemporary style arrangements based on geometric shape, season, and container type. Most are of easy to moderate difficulty and make good use of garden flowers and craft shop materials. Both books reflect current decorating fashions and will be welcome in public libraries.
