Overview

Cindy Smith designs for the best of the best—including such top names as Bruce Springsteen, Nicole Kidman, and Oprah. But fortunately for those of us who don’t have their astronomical budgets, she also knows how to create out-of-this-world arrangements that real people can afford. With tasteful and stunningly photographed projects, Smith reveals how you can attain that elegant "star look,” too. The containers she uses are common ones—ceramic pots, glass vases, baskets, bowls, tea cups—and Smith teaches all the necessary tricks of the trade, including hot-gluing flowers to surfaces, using floral foam in containers, stringing flowers, and floating flowers. From amazing centerpieces to a floral birthday cake stand, from hanging votives with colored water to a tangerine topiary tree, each one is magnificent. Plus: Smith gives us an inside peek at luxurious celebrity events, with photographs.

Editorial Reviews

Library Journal - 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.
