What stood out to me foremost about this book (besides the serious floral eye candy) was Florence's way with words. When you read this book, you can hear a lovely soft English accent reading it to you. I have no idea if this is how Florence speaks in real life. But let's pretend she does.
Florence also writes in a way that is SO easy to read. And so easy to understand. Every thing is so simple and straightforward, and for the novice florist, easily makes creating your first flower crown or flower chandelier a whole lot less daunting, and instead focuses on the reason why you're making it, and the loveliness in that.
Florence Kennedy offers a unique, modern approach to flower arranging.
Breaking away from the stiff structure and formality of traditional floral displays, Florence's personal floristry style is practical, accessible and achievable.
The book is divided into four main chapters - Spring, Summer, Autumn and Winter. The projects are inspired by the comely joys of home, friendship and family gatherings and are all constructed using seasonal flowers and foliage.
The easy-to-follow, step-by-step projects range from simple hand-tied bouquets and vase arrangements, to floral chandeliers, wedding decorations and festive garlands and wreaths.
