Author(s): Jane Packer
Leading floral artist Jane Packer is renowned the world over for her chic signature style of elegant flowers arranged with a fresh, modern twist. Beloved by private clients as well as those from the film, fashion, and business worlds, Jane's arrangements are sold across the globe, and her admirers flock to her four flower schools to glean a little of the Jane Packer magic for themselves. In At Home with Flowers, Jane shows how to use flowers to bring color, variety, and style to every corner of the home. The introduction covers all the important basics, including choosing flowers, conditioning,
and caring for them. Jane also explains how to choose vases and containers and get the proportions of arrangements right. She then takes us on a tour of every room in the house--there are dramatic flowers for mantelpieces, massed vases on console tables, tiny posies on windowsills, luscious blooms on dressing tables and desks, as well as gorgeous floral arrangements for guest rooms and bathrooms. In At Home with Flowers there are no stiff bouquets or formal displays, just simple and achievable arrangements that you'll yearn to recreate in your own home.
