Rich textural contrasts, intense colors, and strong design characterize this gorgeous guide that's filled with fabulous color photos and strikingly original projects, all clearly explained. Many are not necessarily round or even made to hang on the wall: the topiary of gardenias, fruit-and-nasturtium table garland, bridal headpiece, chair-back decoration, and banister garland all take the concept of wreath making to new design heights, lending elegance to very special occasions. For some everyday flair, try a horseshoe of succulents, a citrus fruit ring, or a driftwood frame. "The true craft of wreath making," says this talented floral designer, "is taking whatever is plentiful and inexpensive in nature and fashioning it into an imaginative decoration." --Amy Handy --This text refers to an out of print or unavailable edition of this title.
