About this title:
Florist Jane Durbridge and writer Antonia Swinson bring you elegantly modern, unfussy arrangements to enjoy every day--from a touch of colour to brighten a desk to suggestions for stylish entertaining and floral gifts. " Easy Flowers" are affordable, stylish, and quick to put together. The emphasis is on striking use of form and colour rather than on costly blooms or time-consuming bouquets. Flower Basics tells you how to buy, care for, and prolong the life of your flowers, and gives invaluable advice on choosing vases and flower-arranging. Next, more beautifully simple ideas are grouped into Colour Themes.
