Flowers for the HomeBook - 2003
A vase of flowers is a simple way to instantly brighten any room. With this book by acclaimed floral designer Malcolm Hillier, you'll soon be creating fresh and fragrant displays for every room and occasion, from quick arrangements to cheer up a hallway to elaborate and more challenging pieces for celebrations and feasts. Foliage and dried flowers -- often overlooked in the enthusiasm for fresh materials -- have an important role to play too, and are among the ideas for over 70 unique displays. Vibrant photographs illustrate each new concept, and there are practical tips and lists of ingredients to help make implementation easy. And you can create exciting variations with the many alternative flower selections included in the book. All practical aspects of flower design are clearly explained: using color and texture, choosing and adapting containers, and preparing flowers for longlasting displays. Step-by-step photographs guide you through all the key techniques, including how to dry your favorite flowers for subtly colored decorations. Use Flowers for the Home as an invaluable reference guide or as an inspiration for creating your own stunning designs. Book jacket.
