Publisher Comments:

The flower arranger's bible from the bestselling floral designer. Simple or complex, discreet or exuberant, colorful or quiet, masses of inspired ideas fill the pages of this beautiful volume. Designs for every room in the home and every occasion are shown, from simple arrangements to brighten up your kitchen to elaborate displays for special dinner parties. Thanksgiving and other holiday themes are showcased, as are ideas for weddings and church occasions and flower gifts for birthdays, Mother's Day, and Valentine's day. Wealth Of Techniques: All practical aspects of flower design are clearly explained and illustrated, including assembling your essential kit; choosing and adapting containers; and selecting, buying, and preparing material. Step-by-step action shots guide you through all the key techniques, from making wreath bases and drying your favorite flowers to enhancing special bouquets with trimmings and wrapping. An extensive A-Z catalog of plants provides an accessible, quick-reference source that will serve both experienced arrangers and complete beginners. All plants are shown photographically to aid identification, and essential flower arranging information is given on vase life, special attributes, and care requirements. Preserved material and other ingredients, such as shells and feathers, are also featured.

Synopsis:

Drawing on both fresh and dried materials, Hillier offers 150 display ideas for all seasons, from simple arrangements for the home to more elaborate designs for special occasions.

About the Author

Malcolm Hillier's lifelong passion for plants and flowers first found professional fruition in 1970 when, together with Colin Hilton, he started a garden design practice that went on to enjoy an enviable reputation around the world. A few years later, they opened a flower shop in London that became the center of a thriving business specializing in flowers for interior decoration. Over the next ten years, Malcolm created flower arrangements in his highly distinctive style for many clients, including the makers of major feature films and television series. Malcolm's other great passion is cooking for others. His homes in London and on the Caribbean island of Saba provide wonderful settings for many celebrations and gatherings of friends.
