In "Wreaths & Bouquets", Paula Pryke turns her attention to the arrangements that she uses most in her work, and that have been instrumental in helping her create so many of her signature styles.
Throughout the world, in all cultures, rings and wreaths of fresh or dried plant materials have traditionally been used as symbols of eternity and hospitality.
Everyone is used to seeing a wreath hung on front doors at Christmas time to welcome friends and families into homes during the festive season, but the wreath is a versatile style that can be used throughout the home.
It can create attractive decorations for walls and also be used on linear areas such as tabletops and shelves.A hand-tied bouquet is simply a bunch of flowers tied spiralled in the hand than then tied at the binding point ready to be placed into a vase.
Mastering the skill of the hand-tied bouquet is central to creating many of Paula's trademark designs, and the technique is explored in this fantastic new book.
Arranged seasonally, "Wreaths & Bouquets", shows how to create bouquets and wreaths for specific events and special occasions throughout the year, including Valentine's Day, Mother's Day, Christmas and weddings.
