IF you think fake flowers
are horribly unfashionable, wait until you see the sumptuous arrangements
in this glossy new book. You'll find yourself taking a second look...
and a third... because the floral art displays and simple bouquets
are so lifelike.
A practical book full
of ideas that can also be applied to fresh flower work, Faux
Flowers examines tools, container styles and sizes and basic
design principles to help you create your own single-stem arrangements,
as well as tall bouquets and elegant, compact designs for special
occasions. There are dozens of handy pointers scattered through
the informative text.
The quality of fake silk
and even plastic flowers has improved greatly in recent years, so
why not make the most of them?
Faux Flowers is
a lovely book to dip into for inspiration.
