Paula Pryke, Sarah Cuttle.

Master designer and author of over seven bestselling books, Paula Pryke shares her experience in planning floral displays and accents to set the tone for any event or special occasion. This book emphasizes wreaths and bouquets, but also includes other floral accessories that add a special decorative touch. From making grand statements with massed flowers to thoughtful touches like garlands for mantles or swags for banisters, Pryke covers all the details of decorating with flowers. She discusses both foam and wire-based wreaths, and explores the pros and cons of each depending upon the ornaments used and whether a wreath is meant to last a season rather than just an evening. Also included are centerpieces as well as small posies to be used with table settings. Signature concepts are explored, such as using unusual containers and unexpected accessories like candles. Pryke demystifies the technique of combining colors, textures, and architectural forms and discusses different types of flowers, foliage, and even fruit. Packed with ideas, skills, and techniques, this book is replete with inspiring yet achievable designs for both novices and seasoned floral artists alike.

I would highly reccomend this book. Paula Pryke never fails her audience when it comes to practical information and her expert knowledge of both the flowers and her ingenious use when making her fanciful wreaths & Bouquets. She is a very good teacher and the directions in the book are quite easy to follow. She is a master of flower arranging barr none.

There was one wreath that was composed of fresh fruit, apples, clementines, limes, lemons, and fresh whole nuts. This wreath looks beautiful for the first day but scored fruit isn't going to look fresh after a couple of days. It would be quite expensive to make this wreath.

Another wreath calls for using fresh ears of baby corn. It's beautiful with the kale, and parsnips but would freeze if left outside and wilt if left inside. I'm not sure how well it would hold up for the holiday season, unless your season is only 3 days.

Another arrangement calls for filling a vase with hot chili peppers. The arrangement is roses, carthamus, beech leaves; other than being red I'm not sure what the purpose of having chili peppers in this is. It's a fall/winter arrangement so it would cost a fortune to find chili peppers in the winter.

The arrangements are quite lovely but I'm just not sure how practical and long lasting they would be. If that's not your purpose then this book is for you. There are step by step written instructions, list of all needed items, even napkin ring ideas. Not many actual assembly pictures. The photography is OK, nothing brillant.

The book is divided into the seasons so there are lots of ideas for the holidays. There are even ideas for using martini glasses as vases. Very cute. I think there are better books out there that also have more practical and affordable ideas in addition to these.
