I loved this book. I've never seen such artistics arrangements. I'm a visual person so looking at the beautiful photos was far more rewarding than reading about flowers and centerpieces.

The photos are beautiful, but I didn't purchase it for the photos.
I purchased it to discover the use of mechanics to construct the beautiful florals. There is some text about materials used, but very little. Disappointing.

I'm an Interior Designer and this is a practical guide for clients visually. I'm not for copying works but inspiration to what we can do of endless possibilities.

By Sandy L on November 13, 2011
Format: Hardcover
I totally Love Preston Bailey's Books and all his over the top arrangements. I did utilize the idea from one of his books
for an orchid arrangements for our 25th wedding anniversary centerpieces. With imagination and creativity in creating a
very similar effect. So while many of his designs are way over the top, many of the flowers wired together and so forth, there is always a way to create a relatively similar look for less. No way could the average person afford 20k at least
for him to save the date, but his books are unique with awesome designs for inspiring event decor.

Typical Preston Bailey who has access to thousands of flowers. I find his designs are only eye catching because of the volume of plant material used. The true artists are the Contemporary Master Designers like Gregor Lersch, Pim van den Akker,or Marie Francois Deprez, Mark Pampling and a few dozen more.
