5.0 out of 5 stars Why did no one do this before?
Can't believe no one did this before - it's so obvious. Actual 'recipes' for beautiful flower arrangements: - 'Take 2 tulips, 1 sprig of fern and just add water! (no - that's not actually one of them, but it IS that simple.) Gives just enough technical information too on tools and best uses of different flowers to inform the novice and remind the more expert.

3.0 out of 5 stars Pretty pictures, not a lot of substance
Lots of pretty pictures, but a lot of the arrangements seem to rely on the container rather than the flowers. The authors don't believe in using Oasis, which is fine, but if you are looking for full range of technical skills you may want to look elsewhere. I would recommend you find this book in your local library if you are looking for colour and texture ideas.

This review is from: Flower Recipe Book, The: 125 Step-by-Step Arrangements for Everyday Occasions (Hardcover)
Can't believe no one did this before - it's so obvious. Actual 'recipes' for beautiful flower arrangements: - 'Take 2 tulips, 1 sprig of fern and just add water! (no - that's not actually one of them, but it IS that simple.) Gives just enough technical information too on tools and best uses of different flowers to inform the novice and remind the more expert. It is American, and this can jar occasionally, but the premise is so straightforward and clearly expressed that it really doesn't affect its usefulness.

5.0 out of 5 stars Fresh flower ideas, 3 Sept. 2013

This review is from: Flower Recipe Book, The: 125 Step-by-Step Arrangements for Everyday Occasions (Hardcover)
An excellent boot that made me look again at the plants and flowers in my garden. Showed me plants that I had not thought about using. Quite economical use of flowers. Would recomend to anyone over 50 who has lost the art of arranging flowers. Good present idea.

3.0 out of 5 stars American style, 27 Feb. 2014

This review is from: Flower Recipe Book, The: 125 Step-by-Step Arrangements for Everyday Occasions (Hardcover)
Did not find this book as useful as I expected, flower groupings are more American based but does give some useful ideas.

This review is from: Flower Recipe Book, The: 125 Step-by-Step Arrangements for Everyday Occasions (Hardcover)
Gorgeous book, beautiful photos, quite modern so not like some of the more traditional flower arranging books. I can't wait to try some of the recipes!

3.0 out of 5 stars For the sophisticated Flower Arranger, 5 July 2013
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This review is from: Flower Recipe Book, The: 125 Step-by-Step Arrangements for Everyday Occasions (Hardcover)
This book also set out the arrangements like a recipe and instructed you on the pronunciation of the flower and the available colours which I felt the person interested in this book would have already known. It has a good section on techniques.
