Bringing Nature Home: Floral Arrangements Inspired by Nature Reviews
Big beautiful book with a large array of floral arrangements to span the entire year. Organized by season, many home owners will find new ideas for using existing blossoms and foliage found through out their yard. Readers will generally find the arrangement styles shown to be easy to reproduce. Use of some uncommon materials will provide even knowledgeable arrangers with some new ideas. The negatives of this book are that no practical information is provided on things like conditioning necessary for the flowers and foliage or whether foam was used for the arrangements. Even the detailed arrangement details in the rear of the book were superficial. This is a fun book to look at but I don't recommend anyone purchase it for their own collection.
At first glance, this book feels simplistic and silly. However, it is actual a shift in floral arranging aesthetic, towards more of the natural garden style that is in vogue these days. I am simply a novice, trying to get a sense that is not quite ikebana, not quite English garden, and not too composed either.
This book is eye-poppingly beautiful... page after page of gorgeous decor and artistic floral arrangements. Love love love. Not just pretty pictures though, there's also info in the captions about all the elements used in each arrangement and an excellent section in the back about what makes for a successful grouping.
If you love flowers you will love this book. Inspired me to arrange lilacs and then dogwoods. Not much practical information, which is why I gave it 4 stars, but it is so so beautiful, that I couldn't put it down.
Whoa. Arrangements that walk the line between wild and tame. I don't go for the antiquey vases, but other than that, this is a gorgeous collection of gorgeousness. Well organized too boot.
