This invaluable guide to florists, professional and skilled amateur, contains over 50 floral arrangements, ranging from a serenely elegant bouquet of lilies and lilac for a spring bride to a three-dimensional moss sculpture and other ideas that push beyond the boundaries of conventional flower design.
Each arrangement is featured in full-colour, together with a detailed description of the overall design approach and development, the rationale behind the selection of the materials used, the construction, and possible variations on the design. Practical tips and know-how cover such topics as tailoring the design to the client, conditioning particular flowers, and achieving a professional finish. There are also practical sections on cut flower care and the techniques that are essential to advanced floristry.
This book will be essential and highly enjoyable reading for all floristry enthusiasts.
