Book Overview

Flower arranging has never been simpler or more enticing. The women behind Studio Choo, the hottest floral design studio in the country, have created a flower-arranging bible for today's aesthetic. Filled with an array of stunning, easy-to-find flowers, it features 400 photos, more than 40 step-by-step instructions, and useful tips throughout.

The arrangements run the gamut of styles and techniques: some are wild and some are structured; some are time-intensive and some are astonishingly simple. Each one is paired with a flower recipe; ingredients lists specify the type and quantity of blooms needed; clear instructions detail each step; and hundreds of photos show how to place every stem. Readers will learn how to work with a single variety of flower to great effect, and to create vases overflowing with layered blooms. To top it off, the book is packed with ideas for unexpected vessels, seasonal buying guides, a source directory, a flower care primer, and all the design techniques readers need to know.

Alethea Harampolis and Jill Rizzo are the founders of Studio Choo, a San Francisco-based floral design studio that serves up fresh, wild, and sophisticated flower arrangements for any occasion. Their work has been featured in publications such as Sunset, Food & Wine, and Veranda and in the blog Design*Sponge.

   Opened up a new world
This book was so inspiring, after reading it I went out in the grey winter scenery and managed to collect elements for several flower compositions, said Gillian. Didn't follow the exact recipes, especially because not everything is available here, but there are enough inspiration to allow you to understand composition, arrangement and color pairing.
   Love it
I have been designing flowers for several years and this book has several tips in it--especially on how to make certain flowers last longer! I love the idea of combining different styles of flowers, and I think it's great value.
   This book makes you look like a professional
This book is so well written, and I am so impressed with the customer service. Beautiful pictures, said Gammerman. The list of flowers and materials makes it so easy to put together a professional arrangement. I have had other books, but this one will be my favorite source to refer to over and over again.
   I couldn't be happier about this book! i love it!
Everything about this book is wonderful, Mary. i only wish i could find more like it. i would definitely recommend this book to people.
   Beautiful arrangements. It might not be everyone's style
It's just that some people might not be that into it. I love the way it looks on the face. Rather than directly copying the book, I will use it as an inspiration.
   What a lovely book!
Excellent book. The customer service was excellent and the product was highly recommended. Traditional arrangements are not so different, it gives very do-able directions and options. A+ is awarded for exceptional customer service.
   This book is great for beginners as it starts with the very basics ...
I am so happy I got this book as it also has some very helpful tips for prolonging the life of flowers, said Dr. Julie Gerberding.
   Beautiful Arrangements
I am a relatively new member of the Garden Clubs and this was recommended to me in one of my classes. The coffee table is beautiful and the flowers are gorgeous, too. I haven't tried it, Mr. Dhaliwal said. I enjoy looking at the photographs, Mr. Dhaliwal said. It's a well-written book with lots of excellent photography.
   Flower arranging made easy!
A great book for florists. This book is very easy to follow, even if you have no prior knowledge of English. Most of the flowers and ingredients are readily available. It's really easy, and the results are impressive. This book is a great introduction to the game of baseball. There are some very good arrangements in this book.
   Beautiful pictures
I'm a huge fan of Nancy Reagan, and this book is just too good. A generous hostess gift was on the way for a relative who speaks very little English. We went to multiple book stores and could not find anything. Amazon had this one on sale, and I thought I would take a chance. The pictures are beautiful, and there is just the perfect amount of verbiage to make them stand out. I know she will love it, Penguin said. The trailer is about 4 1/2 feet long, and it's heavy. The original recipe had called it "putting together of flower arrangements."
