Floristry is the production, commerce and trade in flowers, encompassing flower care and handling, floral arrangement, and display and delivery. This guide focuses on floral design--or, floral arrangement--which is the art of making flower arrangements in bowls, vases, baskets; as well as making bouquets and compositions from cut flowers, herbs, ornamental grasses, and other plants. This beginner-friendly volume will appeal to anyone with a practical interest in flower arrangement, either for profit or for pleasure. Contents include: "Wreaths", "Funeral Designs", "Bouquets and Sprays", "Shower Bouquets", "Posies", "Sprays", "Table and Interior Decorations", "Church Decorations", "House Decoration", and "Care and Handling of Flowers". Many vintage books such as this are increasingly scarce and expensive. It is with this in mind that we are republishing this volume now in an affordable, modern, high-quality edition complete with a specially-commissioned new introduction on the history of flower arrangement.
