Jane Packer has transformed the traditional craft of flower arranging into a modern art form, and in this lush volume, she shares her design philosophy, reveals her tricks of the trade, and explains how to assemble shapes, colors, and textures. In addition to discussing aesthetic issues (such as the relation of flower height and form to the container) and detailing wiring and other professional techniques, Packer provides more than 40 inspirational designs. There's an arrangement for every mood, occasion, and level of expertise-from a simply gift posy of hyacinths and a single-stem poppy in a stoneware vase to a love heart of pale pink roses and a sumptuous wreath of hydrangeas-all with instructional text and images.
