This lavishly photographed book from renowned floral designer Ariella Chezar provides step-by-step instructions for 40 seasonal floral arrangements and projects that celebrate the splendor of flowers, the bounty of the changing seasons, and the wild beauty of nature in your home.
Just as fruits and vegetables taste best when they are harvested locally and seasonally, flowers that are picked close to home and at their peak reflect a true connection to time and place. Nature does not deliver its harvest all at once--each season has its stars and Ariella Chezar, author of The Flower Workshop, shows you how to make the most of them. Seasonal Flower Arranging follows Mother Nature's lead to create dazzling arrangements from the distinctive gifts of the changing seasons, from a bounteous Thanksgiving table to a wintery wreath, and from a charming spring bouquet to a bold summer garland for outdoor entertaining. There are arrangements for seasonal holidays, special occasions, or just everyday life featuring tulips, roses, peonies, dahlias, and other flowers that are easily found at farmers' markets, local shops, or grown in one's own backyard. The book includes detailed instructions on how to re-create 40 floral designs, plus the inspiration and techniques to allow you to create your own original art out of nature.
