Flower Arranging is a complete guide to creating innovative flower designs for any occasion or setting. Talented floral designer, Fiona Barnett, has pushed back the boundaries of flower arranging and demonstrates the effective mix of color, form and technique with startling results.

Divided into three sections -- Fresh Flowers, Dried Flowers, and Flowers for Special Occasions -- there are over 150 sumptuous projects using every kind of flower, foliage or natural decoration available. The projects range from the simple and restrained to the flamboyant and innovative. From evocative displays of roses, to exotic pot pourri and bridesmaids' posies, the designs are fresh and contemporary and the suggestions for alternative combinations appear endless.

Each design is clearly laid out with recipe lists of the ingredients and step-by-step photographs of the techniques used. All the projects are highly accessible to beginners, but the range of inspiring ideas and new flower combinations will challenge even the most experienced flower designer.
