Fiona Barnett is one of the most innovative young floral decorators in the UK. She runs her own thriving business, Manic Botanic, which deals with all aspects of flower design. Among her notable clients are many of the major fashion and interior design magazines, her work has featured in many books.From Library Journal:
From simple pomanders and nosegays to more elaborate mantlepiece arrangements, Barnett, a preeminent British floral decorator, and co-writer Egerick list materials plus clear, step-by-step directions for readers to create these and other decorations. The text begins with considerations of color, balance, scale and proportion, flower care, equipment, wiring, and containers to help the novice designer. Moving beyond basic flowers in a vase, it encourages use of fresh as well as dried fruits, vegetables, and flowers, along with twigs, herbs, bulbs, and autumn leaves in innovative combinations for wreaths, napkin decorations, corsages, and other designs. British terms such as "cellophane" are translated to "plastic wrap" and metric measurements are converted; however, the flower availability chart doesn't translate as readily since the Dutch market blooms tend to appear later in the season than those in the United States. Nonetheless, this book provides worthwhile lessons in achievable natural decoration for all occasions. Recommended for public libraries.?Cathy Sabol, Northern Virginia Community Coll., Manassas
