Laura Dowling creates beauty and poetry with her signature wreaths, weaving an enticing floral fairy tale of colour and inspiration, timeless style and fanciful details that are evocative of secret, wild gardens, meadows and forests brimming with enchantment and delight. With layer upon layer of lush blooms and fruits, entwining vines, and surprising combinations of colours, textures and both every day and extraordinary materials, her wreaths make unique design statements that inspire the imagination with a forward-looking, trend-setting approach. Here in this lavishly illustrated book, Laura shares her inspiration, creative process, and step-by-step tips and techniques for creating 75 beautiful and innovative seasonal wreaths for all occasions. From simple and elegant evergreen wreaths to intricate and elaborate fruit and vegetable designs, Laura provides expert insights and detailed guidelines for replicating her fabulously festive wreaths at home.
