Johnathan Fong s Flowers that Wow takes the mystery out of making beautiful, florist-quality arrangements while presenting imaginative, whimsical designs that are not typically offered by local florists. The designs, which include ideas for both real and artificial flowers, are organized into three sections: Flowers for All Occasions: such as birthdays, Valentine's Day and Mother's Day Flowers in Home Décor: bedroom, meditation room, bath, home office, dining & living rooms Flowers You Wear (but not your average corsage): such as a wedding dress! All the projects include a checklist of materials and specific flowers needed, step-by-step instructions with accompanying colour photos and helpful hints. Two special sidebars also appear throughout. One of the features describes a floral project gone wrong Fong uses these to illustrate common mistakes and how to correct them. The 2nd sidebar is called "Secrets from the Florists," in which the author visits actual florists to reveal some tricks of the trade. Each design is featured in context (as part of a room setting) so that readers can see how the arrangement can fit into her or his lifestyle. Johnathan Fong s Flowers That Wow will empower, inspire, and entertain readers who want to craft beautiful, unique floral arrangements. Dramatic, simple, and inexpensive, supported with fresh, fun, fast and easy-to-do projects. Jonathan is a tireless self-promoter; he has a popular web site called JonathanStyle.com and has received a great amount of positive press for Walls That Wow. After an article featuring one of Jonathan's floral creations appeared in Good Housekeeping in March 2005, his web traffic tripled to almost 5,000 visitors a week. A former advertising executive, Jonathan Fong's career as a decorating and style expert was launched when he demonstrated his unique, fun and affordable "wow" wall treatments on the HGTV show Kitty Bartholomew: You're Home. Viewers loved it and he became an instant design celebrity. He lives in Santa Monica, CA.
