Any flower lover can produce breathtaking arrangements--it's just a matter of applying the principles of good design. A lushly photographed guide to contemporary and traditional styles explains how to learn basic skills and ordinary materials. Over 30 designs are on display, with every step for producing them in both fresh and silk flowers. See how to choose the right container (baskets, clear glass, bubble bowls, tall vases) and shape (round, fan, horizontal, vertical, right triangle). Assemble your own versions of arrangements like Seasonal Delights, Springtime Garden, Summer Pitcher, Waterfall, Fruit Compote, Garden Romance, Framed Florals, Christmas Gathering, and Golden Glow. Add special effects--candles, water features, topiaries--to highlight any event from a holiday party to a wedding theme.
