From master event planner and floral couturier Preston Bailey comes a new book celebrating his latest ideas in floral design. A working carousel composed entirely of flowers. A dazzling floor of orchids underfoot. A Renaissance painting adorned with fresh blooms. At the heart of Preston Bailey's spectacular world-renowned events are the flowers - verdant, lavish, unforgettable. From spectacular blooming sculptures that transform a ballroom to the delicate blossoms atop the dinner napkins, Bailey's flower designs are lush, heart-stoppingly romantic, one-of-a-kind.
In his fifth book, Preston takes the reader on an exploration of the meaning and importance of flowers, which are undeniably the most important element of his parties. Taking a dozen of his most recent weddings, Preston walks the reader through his inspiration and process, demonstrating how flowers can create a unique event infused with personality. Along the way he shares ideas both large and small that brides and event planners will be eager to replicate, like the Hamptons wedding reception flanked by handmade hedge-like walls of greens, or the simple but abundant tablescape covered in cream-colored roses. From bouquets to centerpieces, ceremony spaces to reception environments, with a special chapter devoted solely to even more ideas for tabletop design, Designing with Flowers is essential reading for amateurs and professionals alike.
