About This Book

A spectacular volume on the designs of Jeff Leatham, the floral artist to the stars. Jeff Leatham presents the next wave in designer floral arrangements. Leatham’s freewheeling sensibility is rooted in upscale sophistication, earning him patrons as diverse as Oprah, Kylie Minogue, Tina Turner, and the Four Seasons George V in Paris. Collected within this volume are more than ten years’ worth of floral masterpieces, from sensational parties to quiet intimate gatherings, all representing Leatham’s unifying ideal that artful floral design can transform any space. Organized by type of event, from weddings to anniversary parties to personal birthday dinners, the book includes sumptuous and visually spectacular floral portfolios, together with sections by Leatham discussing his approach and techniques for every type of design. By laying out key elements to successful arrangements and encouraging risk-taking, his instructions are meant to inspire creations that are gorgeous yet boundary-pushing. Including more than 200 color photographs of magnificent floral sculptures, this volume is equal parts dazzling and inspirational.
