The pleasure of fresh flowers needn't be restricted to special occasions -- they are something to be enjoyed every day. Easy Flowers are affordable, stylish, and quick to put together. The emphasis is on striking use of form and color, rather than expensive blooms or time-consuming arrangements. In this book, popular florist Jane Durbridge, with the help of style writer Antonia Swinson, brings you her elegantly modern touch with unfussy arrangements for every corner of the home. Her ideas range from the simplest touch of color to brighten up a desk to suggestions for stylish entertaining, and even imaginative floral gifts. Jane and Antonia begin by instructing on Flower Basics -- how to buy, care for, and prolong the life of your fresh flowers, expert advice on choosing vases and containers, plus indispensable flower-arrangement tips. Next, comprehensive sections for each of the Color Themes show Jane's beautifully simple ideas grouped by flower color, from a fragrant vase of blue hyacinths in a white kitchen to a dramatic display of claret arum lilies in a goldfish bowl on a modern coffee table. Twigs and berries are also included to add variety to your arrangements. Whether you've just bought a simple bunch of cool blue or hot red flowers, this book will show you the most stylish ways to display them.
