MEANINGFUL BOUQUETS: 25 Beautiful Arrangements

LEIGH OKIES & L. MCGUINNESS    Book Number: 83552    Product format: Hardback

An elegant volume which features a visual glossary of popular flower types and their Victorian meanings. Combine laurel meaning success and sage meaning virtue to wish a friend success or Carolina jasmine meaning separation with zinnia meaning thoughts of the day to mean a simple I miss you. Pure love, charm, refinement, celebration, I am proud of you, happiness, grace, joy and a crush on you, all of the symbolism is explained on these many black pages with beautiful colour artworks or colour photographs, plus 'handwritten' plant names and short explanations. There is a directory by flower name and sentiment and a tool box covers basic materials, stem reinforcement, fake stems, vessel varieties, foliage, ribbons and wrappings. It explains how to share the meaning by being sure to include a missive to keep long after the flowers have faded. 144 rather special and magnificently coloured pages to create special messages with flowers, way beyond the red rose for love. Orange roses and rose buds can say much more about a budding relationship and a pink carnation means I will always remember you; daffodils show regard or a new beginning and geranium means friendship; daisy innocence and strawberry perfection; sweet William gallantry and rose of Sharon mildness and passion and sweet pea blissful pleasure. A beautiful book to experience. 144pp. 8" x 9½". Colour.
