Celebrate the lushness of the seasons with live evergreens.
In this beautiful and inspirational book, designer Robert Waite gives a breath of fresh air to designing for the holidays. Fresh flowers, fruit, and live greenery are combined to create beautiful wreaths, swags, garlands, centerpieces, and more.
Waite uses nature as his inspiration and doesn't overthink his designs or follow a set of prescribed rules. Instead he follows his instincts and lets the season, natural surroundings, and the locally grown greenery itself dictate the style of his pieces. A romantic at heart, he uses texture, color, and shape to inform his work, and draws inspiration from the space he is adorning.
Robert Waite owns a floral shop and has designed with evergreens for clients for Christmas, weddings, and other life events for more than twenty years. He lives in Kaysville, Utah.
'Decorating With Evergreens' is available on amazon.com and at all major book sellers.
