Tuttle Publishing's new coffee table book Decorating With Flowers is an intoxicating visual treat that captures breathtakingly beautiful and innovative arrangements of flowers through the photography of Luca Invernizzi Tettoni. The accompanying text by Elizabeth V. Reyes and Roberto Caballero provides commentary and background on the floral entrepreneurs who've carved a niche for themselves among wealthy Filipinos by designing exquisite flower decorations for their dinner parties, weddings, baptisms, family reunions, funerals, political gatherings or significant business events such as launching a new product, or introducing or bidding farewell to an important executive.To create the book, various architecturally outstanding houses in the Philippines, mainly in the greater Manila area, were chosen as settings for the floral engineers--as they are sometimes referred to in the book--to stage their flower arrangements, using glass, metal, wood, ceramic, porcelain, organic and other vessels and containers. The book provides helpful ideas that readers can attempt to duplicate in their own quests for style, beauty and whimsy; it's also another welcome counterpoint to the often dreary images the rest of the world might have of the Philippines after decades of media reports on the country's extensive urban slums, problems with corruption, and gaping disparity between its rich and poor. Moneyed Filipinos and upwardly mobile overseas Filipino workers, in particular, should own this elegant book as they can appreciate it as a showcase of the creative artists and beautiful things that do indeed exist in the Philippines in spite of its enormous problems.
