A rose is a rose. But is it really? Take a closer look. Faux flowers have never looked so good, and today they're more popular than ever. Multihued hydrangeas, gossamer poppies, slender lilies, and hundreds of other varieties are widely available and incredibly lifelike. In this beautifully illustrated guide, floral designer Richard Kollath and writer Ed McCann demonstrate how easy it is to use faux flowers to add lasting, blooming color to every room of the house. A collection of anemones in tiny glass bottles cheers up a sunny windowsill. A lush arrangement of ranunculus in a ceramic cachepot brightens a corner nook, and a table arrangement of red hibiscus blossoms and candles sets an exotic mood for a dinner party. These are just a few of the more than 100 simple ideas in Faux Flowers. With tips on designing, constructing, and displaying the arrangements, full-color photographs, unique container ideas, and an extensive suppliers list, Faux Flowers is the ultimate guide to creating beautiful arrangements that last.

Great book for learning to design and arrange faux flowers. Provides a good list of contacts & sources for the products used. When this book says simple it really means SIMPLE. Some of the arrangements(i.e. single flower use) are just too simple to be included, but overall a great purchase.
