Southern Bouquets

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.

Also, get tips on:
  • Arranging bouquets
  • Growing conditions
  • Blooming time
  • Vaselife

Review: Country Living - April 1, 2010

Finally, a flower-arranging guide that gets it right. In Southern Bouquets, Charleston Stylists Melissa Bigner and Heather Barrie bypass the usual fussy centerpieces in favor of loose, natural-looking displays that mere mortals can actually replicate. … Plus, Bigner and Barrie start from the ground up, offering growing tips for all the blooms featured.
