From the authors of the widely popular Flower Recipe Book ,and in the same successful format, The Wreath Recipe Book provides 100 "recipes" to make with flowering and leafy branches. These aren't just evergreens for Christmas--the book is organized seasonally, with dozens of projects to make throughout the year.In the spring, a cherry blossom bough gets a touch of whimsy with a colorful ribbon, and a tabletop is adorned with lilacs and olive branches. In the summer, a garland features sage with pomegranates and citrus-colored strawflowers. In the fall, wreaths are created with magnolias, rosemary, and plums, and gourds are used to create an unexpected garland. Winter highlights cedar, pine, and juniper, yielding unexpected table settings and new wreath shapes. There are detailed ingredient lists and hundreds of step-by-step photos as well as chapters covering basic techniques, sourcing, and care information.

If you, like many people, think of wreaths mainly as holiday decorations, you'll be dazzled by the year-round variety in The Wreath Recipe Book. Designers Alethea Harampolis and Jill Rizzo, the team behind the popular Flower Recipe Book, apply the same clear instructions and unconventional style to wreaths, garlands, and wall hangings. Organised by season and illustrated in glorious full-colour photos, there are over 100 arrangements to choose from, including several with reusable elements such as live succulents or fragrant lavender.

Terrible book; how to put a stick in a cup and they call that a wreath! How could such a crappy worthless book cost this much! Why was this book even purchased; poor use of our tax dollars!!

This book is a waste of resources. Don't waste your time checking this one out. Wished the library would have been more selective when considering this book for purchase.
