Full Description
Southern floral artist Sybil Sylvester does more than arrange flowers; she uses inventive ideas and fresh plants to illuminate her surroundings. Many of her plants come straight from her own garden, revealing a natural sense of connection that is evident throughout the pages of Fresh. This stunning book presents Sybil's most effervescent and distinctive floral designs, organised by season, plus some of her celebrated arrangements from a variety of special occasions. Excitingly, Fresh also includes a beautifully photographed how-to section in which Sybil empowers readers to create their own magic from the natural world with instructions for a number of delightful designs, plus her own special brand of inspiration and helpful advice. Full of whimsy, joy, and elegance, Fresh is a magnificent paean to floral beauty.
