This definitive guide presents the very best of Paula Pryke's innovative ideas for creating stunning floral displays. Where do Paula's ideas come from? In the opening section Paula shares her artistic vision and explains her use of colour, shape, and style to set the mood for any occasion. She also looks at the unique demands of fulfiling a client's brief or responding to seasonal restrictions. Over 80 arrangements are illustrated, each with instructions on how to re-create them. Sixty-five of these are covered in more detail with a personal commentary by Paula.
Divided into two styles, Classic and Contemporary, these include arrangements that have become classics, as well as those that are at the cutting edge of flower artistry. Accompanying text explains what makes each arrangement unique. Using florist bouquets, cut garden flowers, and even vegetables, Paula's easy-to-follow step-by-step instructions allow anyone to create ingenious compositions that will add colour and style to the home. Comprehensive information on techniques is also included together with a gallery of Paula's favourite flowers, accompanied by advice on how they are best used.
