MY THOUGHTS ON THIS BOOK
This is a beautiful book inside and out. I love the beautiful flowers on the cover. This book would sure stand out on any bookshelf or bookstand in a store. If you are into flower arrangements, or decorating with flowers, this book would be an awesome choice for you to pick. It is hardbound, so it is more durable while you are working with it.
The fifty flower arrangements taught in this book are amazing, and I might could do a decent job of doing an arrangement after going through this book. No only does she show you how to do these 50 beautiful arrangements, Ms. Chezar gives you enough tips and ideas that you will be able to make your own arrangements. It may take a little time, and going back to the book for help at first, but the more you work with the flowers, the easier it becomes. This author leaves nothing out, she gives you full instructions, the kinds of flowers, what is in season when, and tells you the tools you need to make your flower arranging successful.
And I can’t leave out all of the full color pictures. They are simply gorgeous. This is a book you can have fun just looking through over and over again, just to see the beautiful pictures of the flowers.
