Editorial Reviews

Publishers Weekly
In their colorful volume, event designers Stark and Adler serve up a spirited guide to transforming ordinary flowers into extraordinary decorations. They champion humble blooms like carnations and baby's breath and rhapsodize about the possibilities of flower paintings, flower clouds and flower snowmen (they also show how to make them). They praise vases made out of drinking glasses, too, and proclaim the pleasures of using office supplies such as stickers and labels and colored beverages from the corner store to enhance presentation. Thus, a pint glass stuck with black stickers and topped with a ball of white carnations becomes a striking black and white centerpiece, while a glass vase full of blue Gatorade and stuffed with baby's breath and a bit of maribou boa becomes an ethereal-looking arrangement. The photographs are vivid and the prose is enthusiastic, but the ideas are few and, some might argue, a little bit tacky, making this feel more like a fun vanity project than an authentic how-to. (Apr.) Copyright 2003 Reed Business Information.

    Smiles, Beauty and Fun

    "Wild Flowers" is a book about the joy of possibilities. Yes, it is a design book, a how-to book - it will allow you to easily follow directions to achieve a vision. It will give you tools to use, guidelines to follow and let you loose. It will be great fun whether the result is a product of the authors' vision or one all your own. Just leafing thru its pages will take you on a trip of wonder and transformation. Like the light in a child's eyes at first discovering something new, this book presents fresh options, a license to re-imagine the world around you and new uses for the objects it contains. So, if you never want to make anything, just do it in your mind, or enjoy the beauty of the book itself.
