Front Cover
Random House Incorporated, 1998 - Crafts & Hobbies - 143 pages
The arrangements presented in this volume incorporate a wide variety of organic elements such as fruit, vegetables, grasses, and seasonal ornaments, and present them as small touch of nature brought indoors. Organized according to the seasons of the year, each was chosen for the intimate ceremonies of everyday life - breakfast-in-bed, or lunch in the garden, or more important celebrations such as Mother's Day, Christmas, or weddings. Particular attention is given to the types of flowers typical of each season, and to the style of vase - its texture, material, and color - that best suits each floral design. Each arrangement has been photographed in environments that will provide dozens of new decorating ideas. Inspirational, informative, cotemporary, and beautiful, 'Flower Arranging in the French Style', a spectacularly crafted object in itself, is sure to become one of the major floral gift books of the season.
