The Flower Expert: Ideas and Inspiration for a Life with Flowers
by Fleur McHarg
The aptly named Fleur McHarg has been creating breathtaking floral arrangements for every kind of event for over twenty-five years. Guided by the wisdom of Constance Spry, the trailblazing twentieth-century florist, Fleur believes in letting flowers be the stars of the show by working with the natural shape of a flower or branch. With an unparalleled instinct for colour and endless creative conceptions, Fleur is the go-to florist for her celebrity clients.
In The Flower Expert, Fleur brings her years of experience in creating glorious and unique floral arrangements for every kind of event imaginable, and flavours it with her idiosyncratic take on colour, the personalities of flowers and why there are some things you should never do with floral arrangements. She shares her astute flower philosophy, including an analysis of why some combinations work and others don't, her favourite flowers to use for each occasion, and how to select a base and blend colours for a flower arrangement.
Through Fleur’s guidance and colour inspiration, readers learn how to showcase flowers for startling impact. The Flower Expert is a celebration of colour and the artistry behind contemporary and classic floral arrangement styles.
Fleur McHarg is one of Australia’s most renowned florists. She has designed for events in Australia and internationally and her work has been featured in magazines including Vogue Mexico, Inside Out and Vogue Living Australia.
