Overview

Master designer and author of over seven bestselling books, Paula Pryke shares her experience in planning floral displays and accents to set the tone for any event or special occasion. This book emphasizes wreaths and bouquets, but also includes other floral accessories that add a special decorative touch. From making grand statements with massed flowers to thoughtful touches like garlands for mantles or swags for banisters, Pryke covers all the details of decorating with flowers. She discusses both foam and wire-based wreaths, and explores the pros and cons of each depending upon the ornaments used and whether a wreath is meant to last a season rather than just an evening. Also included are centerpieces as well as small posies to be used with table settings. Signature concepts are explored, such as using unusual containers and unexpected accessories like candles. Pryke demystifies the technique of combining colors, textures, and architectural forms and discusses different types of flowers, foliage, and even fruit. Packed with ideas, skills, and techniques, this book is replete with inspiring yet achievable designs for both novices and seasoned floral artists alike.
