Perfect Tables Book Review

Guest Author - Connie Krochmal

Floral arrangements can be used throughout the house for decoration. In addition, these are often added for seasonal interest and special occasions. What can be more special than entertaining? That is the one time it is crucial to coordinate the flowers with all the table items to create the effect that you desire. Now there’s a book that can help you pull all this together.

“Perfect Tables” by William Yeoward with exquisite full-page color photos by Ray Main was released by CICO Books, a division of Ryland Peters and Small. This groundbreaking title showcases everything you would want to use for the table—from flowers, and table linens, to place settings and centerpieces.

The author devotes chapters to important holidays as well as various kinds of occasions and events. There is also a chapter on ideas for more casual dining options that you can use for family and friends.

One thing about this book that will make it so useful for floral designers is the fact that the author devotes a special section to flowers. In addition, there is a separate section for each color or color combination, including white. You’ll find ideas and inspiration from the many examples that showcase flowers and other decorations. There are scenarios for every imaginable kind of meal and event, including teas, cocktails, lunch, and breakfast. For those who prefer to dine al fresco, there’s also a chapter on picnics.

At the end of the book is a very helpful chapter called “The Essentials,” in which the author discusses all the basic kinds of items that are used on tables, including a whole section on choosing and using flowers.

For each of these plans or events, the author shows what sort of flowers would be appropriate, how to choose a suitable container, and how to display them on the table.

By following these examples, you’ll be able to color-coordinate your flowers so they contribute to the festive picture scene you want to create.

The author is a world-renowned expert on this subject, and has stores and showrooms in the U.S. and London. His work has appeared in various magazines.
