This is my third book I have purchased from Paula. I again am so impressed with how she displays flowers. I myself am a floral designer and Paula gives me some ideas I might use in some of my arrangements in the future. Shes so creative and all her things looks so classy and never tacky...Thank you Paula for more insperations and keep up the lovely and beautiful work!!

Paula Pryke's book is simply wonderful! I am a dedicated housewife who loves to have fresh flowers at home and beautifully done, and she has given me the perfect guidelines to the modern, new age style of flower arrangement which I love so much. Thank you Paula.
