Editorial Reviews

From Publishers Weekly

Although indelibly associated with Christmastime, decorative wreaths aren't limited to any particular season or holiday. Platt, the author of Flower Crafts and owner of a flower and herb farm, devises a collection of elegant arrangements here, nearly any one of which would bring an air of festivity to any locale in any season. Her constructions range from the simple impact of a Della Robbia Wreath made with whole dried citrus fruits, artichokes and sala leaves, to wedding wreaths for a bride and her party, using dried flowers and herbs. There are also other theme wreaths for special occasions and such holidays as Valentine's Day and Halloween. The collection of Christmas-related arrangements includes one made with fresh greens, dried berries and flower heads that doubles as a bird buffet; another, named Ice and Snow, uses preserved juniper, pine cones, clusters of bleached baby's breath, white ribbons and plastic icicles; a traditional fresh wreath is composed of holly and ivy. Platt offers tips throughout (e.g., cheap ribbon will cheapen the entire effort) and gives precise, easy to follow instructions that make her book a boon for any season.

I've owned this book for several years. This book is a wonderful book. It has easy to follow instructions and even explains what items you will need to make the wreaths. This book may inspire you to even use your own ideas. I know it inspired me. It is a fun Christmas family activity craft book. Not many of those left around. It is a heavy book and the pages are full of pictures and illustrations. I would recommend this book to anybody who wants to start making your own wreaths. This book will educate and enlighten you.

This book is sure to stop the winter doldrums quick in their tracks! The book is filled with inspirational and exciting renditions of Ms. Platt's designs on wreath making. It will surely appeal to those who desire to create masterpieces of similar design,as well as those who simply enjoy artistic designs in wreaths.

I've been making wreaths for the last 25 to 30 years. This wasn't one of my favorite books for inspiration. The designs reminded me of what I'd done in the 80's and was I ever glad to be out of the 80's -- whew, what were we thinking with big hair, those clothes -- oh don't get me started down that memory lane.

I actually donated the book to a charity organization within a couple of days. That doesn't mean someone else won't like it, though. It just wasn't for me.

It is a nice book with a few good ideas, but not exactly what I was looking for. Some of the wreaths were not my style.
However the book is a great source more for someone who likes the country look and style.
