Flower Arranging – The Complete Guide to Floral Design!

This book is written as a foundation for the novice entering this new world of floristry. It also serves as a refresher for the experienced designer and as a springboard to the next level for designers in between. The ability to create emerging styles of design relies heavily on solid fundamentals. Mastering the classic round mound, the one-sided triangle, the horizontal centerpiece, the European hand-tied and one dozen roses in a vase is akin to learning the five mother sauces of classical cuisine. To be taken seriously, a designer must master these essentials of the craft.
