BLURB/FLYLEAF: Contemporary trends in flower arrangement and table decor and the growing importance of individual creativity are emphasized in the new edition of this widely praised, practical guide for the bride, homemaker, flower exhibitor, and flower-show judge. Distinguished arrangements and settings are lavishly illustrated in color and B&W throughout the book.
New chapters discuss modern combinations emphasizing color and style, and the use of space as an element of design - the hallmark of contemporary flower arrangements and table decor. There are chapters on etiquette and fashions, on the decorative unit, on new categories and techniques in exhibiting. The increasingly popular "capsule table settings" for flower show exhibitions are described and illustrated.
