Flowers for everday Living
Florence Kennedy offers a unique, modern approach to flower arranging. Breaking away from the stiff structure and formality of traditional floral displays, Florence's personal floristry style is practical, accessible and achievable. The book is divided into four main chapters - Spring, Summer, Autumn and Winter. The projects are inspired by the comely joys of home, friendship and family gatherings and are all constructed using seasonal flowers and foliage. The easy-to-follow, step-by-step projects range from simple hand-tied bouquets and vase arrangements, to floral chandeliers, wedding decorations and festive garlands and wreaths.
The introduction and basics chapters take you through all the core skills from sourcing your blooms, choosing your hues, working with wire and floral foam and conditioning both flowers and foliage.
Florence's stylish collection of seasonally inspired projects and hard-earned know how will help complete beginners, flower enthusiasts and florists looking for new ideas. Flowers for Everyday Living is the must-have book for anyone who loves having flowers in their home and revels in sharing them with others.
