Southern Bouquets by Melissa Bigner with Heather Barrie and photography by Peter Frank Edwards demonstrates how to bring the beauty of flowers home, no matter your zip code or the state of your green thumb.
The book highlights individual flowers that are quintessential to the Southern blooms (though many appear throughout the country) and shows how to create simple yet elegant bouquets with homegrown fare from backyard gardens and local flower farms.
The bouquets that grace the dining rooms and parlors of stately Southern homes are beautiful and elegant, but they need not be complicated or expensive. Bigner and Barrie celebrate favorite home-grown flowers in unique bouquets. Filled with breathtaking photos, Southern Bouquets gives readers a guided tour of the South's classic flowers, and provides human interest stories for each of the profiled flowers.
