Publisher's description: Fifteen years ago, Laura Downling was inspired to change careers from strategic communications to flowers after traveling to Paris and becoming intrigued with French flower design. She studied French floral art under the direction of leading Parisian designers and continued her floral training with German master florist Gregor Lersch, operating a small studio out of her basement kitchen.
