Overview

From a gorgeous bridal bouquet to fabulous table arrangements, flowers help make every wedding special. Now an award-winning florist shares more than 80 floral design “recipes” to suit any wedding style, location, or budget!

Wedding Flowers Made Simple is conveniently organized into three sections, each focusing on a particular floral theme. “Timeless Classics” highlights traditional wedding flowers like roses, orchids, and lilies. “Seasonal Flowers” features seasonal blooms (tulips, hyacinths) and other elements like grasses, mosses, berries, and fruits. And “Sweet Perfume” showcases flowers with heady fragrances, like lilacs, lavendar, and sweet peas. Themes are presented in a variety of settings, ranging from a country mansion to a sleek urban eatery.

Each set of designs centers on a stunning bridal bouquet and includes instructions for creating coordinating arrangements for attendants (boutonnieres, headdresses, and corsages), the ceremony (garlands, pew decorations, floor vases), and even for the reception (centerpieces, favors, napkin rings, and more).

Wedding Flowers Made Simple not only provides dozens of helpful hints for selecting flowers, designing arrangements, assembly, and construction, but also gives the couple-to-be, family, and friends a wealth of dazzling, inspirational designs—and professional know-how—for crafting the perfect floral arrangements for that very special day.

Library Journal - Library Journal
Flowers are an essential and often expensive part of every wedding, and here Roberts, a floral specialist in wedding arrangements, shows readers how to make the arrangements themselves. Roberts presents projects for every season, all beautifully photographed in traditional English settings. Included are table decorations, floral accessories for all members of the wedding party, and decorations for church and garden. Detailed "design recipes" and assembly instructions make it possible to re-create exactly the floral arrangements pictured-as long as the particular flowers are available. Many of the arrangements would also be suitable for parties and anniversaries. An excellent selection for all public libraries. Copyright 2003 Reed Business Information.
