Overview

Any flower lover can produce breathtaking arrangements--it's just a matter of applying the principles of good design. A lushly photographed guide to contemporary and traditional styles explains how to learn basic skills and ordinary materials. Over 30 designs are on display, with every step for producing them in both fresh and silk flowers. See how to choose the right container (baskets, clear glass, bubble bowls, tall vases) and shape (round, fan, horizontal, vertical, right triangle). Assemble your own versions of arrangements like Seasonal Delights, Springtime Garden, Summer Pitcher, Waterfall, Fruit Compote, Garden Romance, Framed Florals, Christmas Gathering, and Golden Glow. Add special effects--candles, water features, topiaries--to highlight any event from a holiday party to a wedding theme.

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.
