Jane Packer Flowers shows how to use fresh flowers to bring color, variety, and style to every corner of the home.
An introduction covers all the basics, including choosing flowers, conditioning, and caring for them, as well as the key design principles when it comes to choosing vases and containers and getting the proportions of arrangements right.
There are dramatic flowers for mantelpieces, massed vases on console tables, tiny posies on windowsills, architectural blooms showcased on coffee tables, luscious color on dressing tables and desks, and even cut flowers for outdoor entertaining, as well as gorgeous arrangements for guest bedrooms and bathrooms.
Fresh flowers have a powerful ability to raise our spirits and bring color and a sense of vitality to every interior. In Jane Packer Flowers there are no formal bouquets or stiff displays, just pretty, simple, and achievable arrangements that you'll yearn to recreate in your own home.
