The Promise of Good Things
Floral Design for the Fall and Winter Holiday Season
A lovely guidebook for turning floral design visions into reality
The fall and holiday season in the South are beautiful times of the year. As the sweltering heat of summer gives way to the sweetness of autumn, many feel inspired to decorate their homes for the upcoming harvest and holidays.
James DelPrince, floriculture expert at Mississippi State University Extension Service, collaborated with horticulturists Tricia Knight, Christine Coker, and Christian Stephenson to create The Promise of Good Things: Floral Design for the Fall and Winter Holiday Season. This heavily illustrated book is full of ideas for bringing the promise of plenty into your home and landscape.
Deep crimson and gingery-orange flowers fill flower shop windows as flower and garden enthusiasts daydream about pumpkins and floral designs in the burnished colors of fall. Nurseries and plant farms offer bronze mums, pansies, and kale in jewel tones of royal purple, rose, and gold. Brimming with designs, examples, and how-to advice, these pages offer inspiration to those who want their homes to feel synchronous with the beloved and highly anticipated crisp weather of the season.
