The comprehensive techniques section in this book covers a wide range of fresh and dried materials with notes on each species to help the reader to decide which flowers to use, and basic wiring and taping methods are described and illustrated step-by-step. An important stage in making a garland or swag is to prepare the base, and this section gives a guide to the wide range of bases available from florists’ shops – including ready-made rings woven from natural materials such as hop vine or willow, and wire bases made from copper and steel – as well as showing how to make a personal base from rope, hay and moss. This book has information on garlands, circles and wreaths for all seasons – make a green and white fruit blossom wreath to celebrate the arrival of spring, a sunny sunflower swag to remind long summer days, a traditional harvest swag for autumn, and a bay and orange swag as a winter mantelpiece decoration. There is also a chapter on special-occasion displays, where there are ideas for weddings, such as scented swag made from lavender, nigella, oregano and roses, romantic rosebud hearts for Valentine’s Day, and circles and swags for Christmas, including an exquisite aromatic wreath made from tiny fir cones in rose-scented oil, cedarwood, frankincense and myrrh.
