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.
