Paula Pryke's Simple Flowers by Paula Pryke
The book begins with a look at Single Flowers, for those who believe that less is more. This is a quick way to make a graphic, striking arrangement. You'll need her expert advice for Mixing Flowers; Paula explores pale and hot colour combinations and unusual shades. She looks at scale, proportion and texture, giving you the skill to create your own successful arrangements. Stylish ideas for Containers include wrapping a bowl with leaves and embellishing plain, terracotta pots. Flowers are always a popular gift, and in Wrapped and Tied, Paula presents beautiful ideas for creating floral gifts and table centrepieces at home. She finishes by presenting hundreds of ideas for Spring's delicate blooms, summer's riot of colour, autumn's intense shades and winter's rich greens, including Christmas arrangements.
