Fresh Flower Arranging

Book Description

If you’ve ever ogled a bouquet of flowers at the supermarket and wondered how to display them once you’ve brought them home, then Fresh Flower Arranging is for you. With expert techniques for achieving stunning results and tips and tricks for keeping your flowers fresh and beautiful for as long as possible, Fresh Flower Arranging gives vivid step-by-step seasonal projects for an array of stunning and achievable arrangements.

Guest Review by my mom :)

This book is the flower arranger's handbook for sure. It walks you through preparing the vase or other container, placing the appropriate foliage, picking the flowers according to occasion, season, colour theme, etc., and prolonging the life of the flowers. There is an extensive section on which flowers grow in each season of the year. There is also a guide to preparing flowers for weddings based on the season in which the wedding takes place, and detailed instructions for putting together everything from boutonniers to pew ends to table centerpieces. Beautifully illustrated with lovely photographs, this book will take the stress out of choosing flowers and arrangements for any occasion. A must have for the flower gardener, for wedding planners, or for anyone who loves arranging flowers.

Thanks so much to DK Canada for sending me a copy of this book to review.
