Synopsis

Vintage Flowers by Vic Brotherson

Beautiful and romantic, Vic Brotherson's flower arrangements focus on traditional, seasonal blooms and foliage, such as alchemilla, lavender, hellebore, peonies and hydrangeas, and perfectly match the vintage pitchers, planters, old glass and retro, charity-shop finds she uses both for displays and as a major source of inspiration. From simple posies to glorious garlands and stunning centrepieces for a Christmas banquet, Vintage Flowers demonstrates just how easy it is to transform a handful of fresh cuttings into arrangements that instantly feel at home and complement the look of a room. Accompanied by step-by-step instructions on using florist foam and chicken wire to making a garland, wreath and hand-tied bunch, plus tips on how to select and condition flowers for longevity, how to pin the perfect corsage, wiring flowers for your hair and how to get the most from your budget, Vintage Flowers promises fabulous results every time.

Reviews

'My favourite flowers come from Scarlet & Violet. They do beautiful bunches of wild flowers and roses the colour of parchment, tinged with the palest of pinks.'
Nigella Lawson

'Vic Brotherson's painterly and textured arrangements have already made her a favourite, adorning the chicest of interiors.'
Wallpaper

'She'll inspire anyone from the broke amateur to the more ambitious or flamboyant with her vintage-inspired (though utterly modern), bouquets and decorative gems.'
Laura Bailey, Vogue

'It's a book of beguiling, colourful, busy natural arrangements with great appeal.'
Irish Times

'Fresh flower arrangements can become a work of art, lifting a room with colour and texture.'
