From the author of the acclaimed second bloom comes a follow–up foray into Cathy Graham’s creative world, showing a rainbow of new floral arrangements and decorative creations for the tabletop
Welcome to Cathy Graham’s floral world. In her second book, the acclaimed artist, host, and gardener presents a new series of floral creations. With her uniquely whimsical style and artful touch, Graham creates a variety of colorful designs for the table, home, and party. Brilliant bouquets are paired with Graham’s own watercolor artwork, and easy-to-follow step-by-step guides to creating delightful table settings and floral designs will inspire readers in designing their own creations.

Taken together, these pages provide both a bevy of inspiration and accessible takeaways.
