Jane Packer Flowers is one of the world’s most influential floristry companies, with a distinctively elegant yet refreshingly modern look.
The highly successful Jane Packer flower schools make the company’s floral expertise and design creativity available to all those who are lucky enough to attend. For those who can’t, Jane Packer’s Flower Course covers exactly the same ground as the flower school’s highly regarded four-week Career Course, including Foundation Floristry and the Foundation Bridal. The emphasis is on clarity and simplicity, so glorious photographs of finished arrangements are accompanied by step-by-step photographs and easy-to-follow instructions. The book is divided into three different sections. Flowers to Give teaches the techniques necessary for a variety of irresistible floral gifts as well as bouquets arranged in baskets, bags, and boxes. Flowers for the Home covers arrangements of all shapes and sizes, while the third section, Flowers for Celebrations, provides all the know-how for party flowers, festive wreaths, and table arrangements and last, but not least, beautiful wedding flowers. Jane Packer’s Flower Course distils floral expertise and style into one essential volume that imparts all the secrets of creating beautiful floral designs. It’s a must for anyone who loves flowers.
