She highlights which type of blooms are best for different designs and shares building blocks for floral designs ranging from simple and sculptural to complex and colorful, including arrangements for any mood and different decor. Salazar inspires us to explore our creativity, empowering us to design our own arrangements.
Combining philosophical and practical tips, such as appreciating how flowers change over time and working with fragilityThe Artistry of Flowersis a treatise on flower appreciation. The stunning photography by Ngoc Minh Ngo—known for Rizzoli books such asIn BloomandEden Revisited—complements Salazar’s enthusiastic instruction.

ABOUT THE AUTHOR
Milli Proust is inspired by the way plants grow in the wild, and she loves working with what she grows, creating romantic and playful designs for weddings, events, brands and personal clients. All of her crops are all grown in rhythm with nature, and are completely chemical-free in a passionate effort to protect our surrounding wildlife. In January 2017, she made the move from London, where she was born and raised, to a deeply rural pocket of West Sussex.
It may be only an hour back to the city by train, but it often feels so much further away than that. She fell in love with her pocket of countryside, deep in the woods, growing as much beauty as she could. In the few years of making this her home, she has learnt to see the seasons change, not just from winter to spring, from spring to summer, but from week to week, each and every day bringing new promise, change and subtle shift. When she is not tending to the crops or creating and installing floral work, she works as an actress for radio, stage, and television.

Healing is not a one-time event.
It can begin with a one-time event — typically some form of sudden loss that disrupts our projection of what the future might be. However, the true work of healing is allowing that disruption to wake us from a deep state of unconsciousness, to release the personas we adapted into, and begin consciously piecing together the full truth of who we were meant to be.

This is a book about flower arranging from the perspective of a gardener.
Harvesting from the garden means short, wonky stems, bruised petals, insects crawling out of blooms and the open invitation to claim a weed or vege as vase fodder. Flowers for Friends is both a reflection, and story of the seasons brought indoors by Julia Atkinson-Dunn when harvesting from her garden and foraging in Canterbury, New Zealand.
Written in her signature casual tone (as seen in her first book Petal Power), Julia offers an accessible guide to picking, conditioning and arranging home- grown treasures, celebrating their quirks and encouraging unexpected combinations. Seasonal chapters profile arrangements she has made, detailing plants in season and inviting readers to play without the hunt for perfection, or restraint.
