I was disappointed in this book.I found Chapter 1 and 2 useful ("Getting Started" and "Everyday Designs").However, as someone wanting to learn the basic steps of flower arranging, I found the other 6 chapters irrelevant. These chapters, touching on how to make corsages, sympathy and funeral flowers, wedding bouquets, working with festive balloons, creating merchandise displays, and packaging for flower shops, seem directed more at professional flower arrangers. Yet by the time one has reached the stage of creating funeral and wedding flowers, let alone distributing them in packaging, one surely does not need a step-by-step instruction book.I found the arrangements presented in the book to be old-fashioned and boring.

Excellent reference! Covers everything you need to know to create many styles, as well as principles of design. Lots of images, thorough coverage of flower prep and care. This is the best flower arranging book I have come across.

the book really helps the reader to understand the whole process of arranging flowers through its step by step explanation. great reference book for those in the flower business.

Not really very helpful. Very limited ideas and not much information about flowers (longevity and dimensions)? I arrange flowers for parties, church Andy some weddings. The person people use when they don't want to pay for a florist.

This book is awesome. I got some good tips from this book. Made my arrangement and it came out awesome.

This was my second book by FR and it indeed takes you through all the basic designs of a professional retail florist, even balloons. The other book was their Flower School which takes you through all the fundamental design concepts behind every arrangement. Both are essential.

This is a great step by step book. Allows me to be more creative and incorporate my own sense of style while still following standard techniques. A welcome book to my collection and I recommend it to all who love to design

Appreciate the clear step by step instructions for different types of arrangements, they cover a lot of ground. Pleasantly surprised by information also included about floral displays, gift wrapping, bow making, and flower packing.Mahalo!
