While I don't think Decorating with Flowers shows forward movement in Pryke's style, the book is an excellent overview of the designer's work and, for those unfamiliar with her, a wonderful introduction to her innovative style. Pryke has a flair for using interesting containers and integrating materials not always seen but that are often readily available - and rarely outrageously priced. What really sets Pryke apart, though, is her expert use of color and her stunning combinations of flower shapes and textures. Both novice and seasoned designers will find inspiration here.
What novice designers will not find in Decorating with Flowers is much in the way of "how-to". The chapter on techniques did not impress me and I would suggest learning the basic and more advanced design techniques elsewhere. (Years ago, I found taking some hands-on classes with a variety of projects and personal attention worked far better for me than trying to learn from books.) Then, while practicing and perfecting skills, I would suggest returning to Decorating with Flowers and letting it serve as a source of great arrangements to emulate. There are so many beautiful designs to choose from in its pages!
Two additional notes:
- A number of other books on flower arranging in my collection are quite large. I really like the more compact size of this volume. While the pages themselves might be smaller, the photos are large and crisply detailed.Read more ›
I recomend it to anyone who likes flowers and not only to those who do it professionally.
