Flower arranging has never been simpler or more enticing. The women behind Studio Choo, the hottest floral design studio in the country, have created a flower-arranging bible for today's aesthetic. Filled with an array of stunning, easy-to-find flowers, it features 400 photos, more than 40 step-by-step instructions, and useful tips throughout.

The arrangements run the gamut of styles and techniques: some are wild and some are structured; some are time-intensive and some are astonishingly simple. Each one is paired with a "flower recipe"; ingredients lists specify the type and quantity of blooms needed; clear instructions detail each step; and hundreds of photos show how to place every stem. Readers will learn how to work with a single variety of flower to great effect, and to create vases overflowing with layered blooms. To top it off, the book is packed with ideas for unexpected vessels, seasonal buying guides, a source directory, a flower care primer, and all the design techniques readers need to know.

Alethea Harampolis and Jill Rizzo are the founders of Studio Choo, a San Francisco-based floral design studio that serves up fresh, wild, and sophisticated flower arrangements for any occasion. Their work has been featured in publications such as Sunset, Food & Wine, and Veranda and in the blog Design*Sponge.

Features:-
The master floral designer inspires novices and experts alike in creating clean, classic, and contemporary flower arrangements so beautiful and original, they make the heart skip a beat.
 
Paula Pryke, Britain’s acclaimed master floral designer, sets the paradigm for excellence throughout the world—so much so that she was recently awarded an OBE. One of her defining characteristics is to go back to nature—to flowers in the wild, natural state—for inspiration and bold color combinations.
 
In this book, Pryke explores the process of how to move from the source of inspiration to the glorious finished flower arrangement. She ties together key aspects of making a good arrangement: mixing color, form, shape, texture, and scale; being inspired by how plants and flowers combine in nature; using foliage and fruit for visual surprise; and much more.
 
A separate section of the book discusses the ins and outs of tools and equipment, and the volume is rounded out with a catalogue of flowers organized into thematic types, which eases searching for the ideal flower—or alternates if the desired one is unavailable.
 
Packed with ideas, skills, and techniques, this book explores the latest trends, encourages the reader to let his or her creativity and personal style flow freely, and is sure to inspire professionals and beginners alike.
