This book is nothing short of spectacular. If you are looking for decorating and set design inspiration then this is the book for you. By now we all know that minimalism is not what Preston Bailey is about. So if that is what you are looking for this book is not for you. However, if you are looking for opulent photographs and royal displays get this book. Even if you are planning an event on a budget pick up this book. There is no denying that Bailey is talented and that his designs and attention to detail will spark the imagination of those with small and large event budgets. This book gives you the big picture view of event design. However with enough imagination and know how you can use this book as a guide to creating a design that fits with your budget and style. (Hint) There are some great things in here that might be duable with crepe paper decorations and gossamer. Read this book and head to the party shop.

I have always enjoyed Preston's books. Are they a little over the top? No doubt! But if I had his client list and their checkbook, I'd go for it too! Although I personally may not like all the designs, I am always inspired and find that his creativity and signature look push me to "think out side the box". Prior to the release of this book I was giving a presentaion to a group for a fundraiser explaining an idea I had...eyes glazed over and they thought I was crazy. At the next meeting I flipped to a page in my new book and said, now this is what I'm talking about! They loved it. Thank you Preston for capturing and publishing your lovely talent and for making this world a beautiful place!! This is your best yet!! Congratulations! If you love events like I do, then this is the book for you! I have bought copies for all my designer friends...

This book exemplifies why Preston Bailey leads the pack in entertainment planning and design. The minimalist approach to entertainment has become passe - people are seeking to experience the beauty of life and indulge in it's lushness. This book provides a detailed pictorial guide for sumptuous events that when applied with modification for scaling and budgetary concerns can make any event an event to remember.

Great book for inspirations or a coffee table book. I have seen some of these creations on PB website. But a book is a much better treasure with event decor possibilities and over the top colour and flower that you wouldnt see very often. Some pages open out to a larger view of the venue which give more details. Little story on how things were set up and a bit of behind the scene is another bonus.

Since I am in the floral industry this book was one of the items on my bucket list. The shipper did an excellent job packing my book. I received it on my end in great condition. If you like flowers this is an excellent tool to get ideas and few flower arrangements in a different few.

The book was absolutely BEATIFUL! Worth every penny. The seller sent it in great condition and well shipped. I enjoyed it from front to back. If you don't know who Preston Bailey is, you don't know what you are missing. Classy-classy-classy. Times infinity. Buy the book. Really.

Expected more on how he created the flower arrangements. I wanted to know what was used, the different kind of flowers. The pictures was great. As a event designer, looking for inspiration and something new and exciting, I needed a little more behind the scenes on how.
