This lavishly photographed book from renowned floral designer Ariella Chezar provides step-by-step instructions for 39 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 charming spring bouquet for Mother's Day to a bold garland for a summer wedding, and from a bounteous Thanksgiving table to a wintery holiday wreath. 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 your own backyard. The book includes detailed instructions on how to re-create 39 floral designs, plus the inspiration and techniques to allow you to create your own original art out of nature.

Author: Jacky Hobbs
In "Floral Gifts", Jacky Hobbs shows how innovative containers can be used to create gorgeous floral offerings that are almost too good to give away. The charm of these floral gifts lies not only in the fresh blooms, but also the containers in which they are imaginatively presented. You could present a keen cook with a pestle and mortar planted up with culinary herbs, for example, or give a wine lover a bottle of his favourite vintage set among vines and grapes. The ideas in this book allow anyone to transform a simple bunch of flowers into something special, creating a momory that the recipient will always cherish. Bought flower arrangements swathed in cellophane can be expensive and impersonal, but these thoughtfully devised gifts come straight from the heart.*Dozens of pretty and quirky ideas for birthdays, Christmas and other special occasions, such as St. Valentine's Day, Christmas and Mother's Day.*Lively photography by Michelle Garrett.
