FTD[trademark], the largest floral company in the world, combines the fundamentals of floral design and care with the basic elements of interior design to offer all flower lovers (and that's everyone) the knowledge, inspiration, and confidence to live happily ever after with flowers. Flowers are as much a part of our daily existence as holidays and the changing seasons. Flowers signal and celebrate all the major and minor events in our lives: in the home, flowers are as essential a decorating element as window treatments or floor coverings. But although everyone loves flowers, not everyone knows how to live with flowers -how to buy them, care for them, or display them. In Flower Style, home design and lifestyle author Pat Ross presents the fundamentals of choosing, arranging, and extending the life of flowers in your home. Whether you buy your flowers from a florist or a grocer or pick them in your yard, Flower Style shows how and where to place them for every room of the house. Flower Style is the only flower book flower lovers will need.

From Publishers Weekly:

While overshadowed by the above presidential floridity, this guide in the name of the perennial nationwide retailer may have nearly the same brand recognition factor, if not the indirect endorsements. A bit too in thrall to Martha Stewart's aesthetic of handsome domestic backgrounds with objects perfectly centered in medium ground, this attractive and straightforward book will nevertheless help beginners distinguish an amaryllis from a zinnia. Ross has authored 15 children's books and 30 adult titles and seems to know what works, explanation-wise. Three sections cover the basics of choosing, arranging and placing flowers; the tone of the book is serious but not without moments of levity: "For too many years, flower arrangements and ladies' hairdos had one thing in common: both were forced into stiff shapes." An explanation of the significance of different flowers may invigorate their once well-known language: choosing among bouquet of thornless roses ("love at first sight"), pink carnations ("I'll never forget you") and primrose ("I can't live without you") can be a question of semantics. With more than 175 color photos and a clear command of current styles, this book should appeal to those seeking a guide for every detail, from choosing scissors and cleaning stems to bathroom arrangements and growing bamboo.
