In Wreaths & Bouquets, world-renowned florist Paula Pryke turns her attention to two of the most popular forms in the flower arranger’ s repertoire, and demonstrates how to use these versatile structures to create year-round decorations.

Mastering the skill of the hand-tied bouquet - a bunch of flowers spiralled in the hand and then tied at the binding point - is central to many of Paula’ s trademark designs. Contemporary vase arrangements can be presented as gift bouquets, while loose flat-backed versions can be used as swags or chair-backs for weddings and other celebrations. Sleek smaller versions make beautiful table decorations or even bridal bouquets.

Equally adaptable is the wreath. All over the world, rings and wreaths of fresh or dried plant materials have traditionally been used as symbols of eternity and hospitality. We’ re all used to seeing a wreath hung on front doors at Christmas to welcome friends and families inside, but the wreath is in fact a very versatile style that can be used throughout the home, and all year round. It can create attractive decorations for walls and also be used on linear areas such as tabletops and shelves.

Arranged seasonally, Wreaths & Bouquets, demonstrates how to create beautiful arrangements for specific events and special occasions throughout the year, including Valentine’ s Day, Mother’ s Day, Christmas and Weddings. With step-by-step instructions for every project, Paula makes even the most ambitious floral design work achievable.
