    (back flap)
    Sylvia Hague--the queen of faux flowers according to Britain's Daily Telegraph --has been creating stylish faux flower arrangements for many years. She began her career in the 1980s, when she and her husband were posted to the British Embassy in the United States. A further five-year posting took Sylvia and her family to Rome, where the fabulous faux flower arrangements in her home caught the eye of the British Ambassador's wife, and Sylvia was soon asked to decorate the official residence. Further commissions followed, and on returning to England, Sylvia turned her talent into a successful business: www.silkflowersbysilvia.com. She exhibits at flower shows at such prestigious venues as the Royal Horticultural Society at Hampton Court and furnishes floral decorations to cruise liners, hotels, restaurants, and clubs, as well as to private homes.
  • About the Author:

    Sylvia Hague began creating faux flowers in the 1970s when she and her British diplomat husband were posted to the United States. During subsequent postings, her own elegant faux flower arrangements began attracting attention and leading to commissions. On her return home to England, she made use of her talent by starting a successful business, Sylvia Hague Faux Flowers.
