Born and raised in Panama, Preston Bailey brought his flamboyant tastes and natural flair for color and design to his floral business in New York City in the 1980s and has been sharing his innate taste-making talents with the fashionable and the famous ever since, including such luminaries as Oprah Winfrey, Joan Rivers, and Donald Trump. His uniquely inventive and thematic style has allowed him to transform raw, empty spaces into sumptuous, theatrical environments that defy all expectations, and his particular eye for lighting and texture has earned him critical acclaim throughout his career. A sumptuous, visually spectacular portfolio, Preston Bailey: Spectacular Celebrations is organized into two parts. The first half is arranged thematically to give hundreds of design ideas to readers, including the elements of table settings, the importance of making a single dramatic statement, the impact of the ceremony space, the magic of tents, and the power of transformation. The second half features ten of Preston’s favorite events, from royal weddings to birthday celebrations, all never before published, each one lavishly illustrated in their entirety.
