This is THE book for modern, inspired design with tropical flowers and greens for parties and weddings. The detail and design inspirations will take you far into your own execution whether it be for home, party, wedding or retail. I love the different chapters/scenarios for individual lifestyles and purpose. Let loose with this book for fun and creativity to create tropical flower design that will WOW and excite.

I learned so much more about flower arranging than I ever could on my own after reading this book. Felipe Sastré's designs are some of the most beautiful creations I have ever seen. He rivals any celebrity florist out there right now. I was inspired to continue my design knowledge and luckily learned that he is currently sharing his wealth of experience in his own flower school. Thanks to this book and I am getting rave reviews for my own designs and am thinking about going in business to do this thing I love. Thank you Mr. Felipe Sastré for being so generous with your knowledge and designs. I recommend this book highly, and if u happen to be in the New York area I totally recommend his classes at as well. You will not be disappointed!
