Educative Session: Making Centerpieces For Your Home
Centerpieces are a great way to decorate with silk flowers. Dining room or kitchen tables and side tables are great places to show off your centerpiece. Hopefully your centerpiece will not only draw attention, it will incorporate elements already in place in your house. Many centerpieces employ certain designs that cause the viewer to look at the whole picture. For instance, a flower centerpiece that has an X. pattern or direction causes viewers to their eyes from the top left to the bottom right and vice versa. Some arrangements do this by having long strands crossing in the middle. Arches are a completely different look that still cause you to look at the whole piece. The Internet, florist shops, magazines, furniture stores, and even other people’s homes are great places to gather ideas for your centerpiece designs.
Silk Flowers as Wedding Decor
Weddings are a perfect place to use silk flower arrangements. Some of the places you may consider using silk flowers are as table decorations; garlands for banisters, dividers, and decor for archways and pillars; gifts for guests; and worn and handheld flowers such as boutonnieres, corsages, and bouquets. The bride may want to consider having a silk bouquet. A silk bouquet is a great option if you’re planning to do a lot of movement and want to assure that the bouquet is crisp, clean, and perfect for each picture. The bride’s bouquet can be forever displayed and preserved, unlike with a real flower bouquet. Since weddings deserve beautiful decorations, the flowers, shrubbery, trees, and any other silk or real varieties should appeal to the mind, heart, and soul of all those participating. When choosing your silk flowers, is important to stick to a certain theme. This theme is usually decided by the bride, but florists can also come up with many different arrangements and designs for the occasion.
5-Minute Home Improvement Tips
If you want to improve the look of your home, you do not need endless free time to do it. There are several strategies you can use, each of which only takes a few minutes. One is to have a notebook where you write down ideas for redecoration and reorganization as they come to you. On a day where you have a few hours to fix something up, your notebook will save you the trouble of figuring out what to do or how to do it. A second suggestion: we spend so much time every day cleaning things that will have to be cleaned again tomorrow or next week. Each day, take a few minutes to take care of something you will not have to worry about again for a month or two. By taking a few extra minutes a day for this, you can keep your home looking great. Another thing you can do consistently with just a little bit of time is view new ways to decorate areas of the home. Flip through a new book or magazine and note what you think looks good. By taking a few minutes a day for each of these tasks, having a tidy and attractive house is much more attainable.
Decorating for the Seasons
For those of you that desire to have your house decorated for each season, here a couple tips. One of the best things you can do to reduce the clutter and the need for storage is to have a specific place in your home for thematic design. This could be a calendar area that is designed differently each month, or a shelf on the wall with craft items. Many moms with little kids who don’t want a lot of little decor pieces can choose to have a stuffed animal that changes clothes with each season or month. To cut down on storage, consider revamping and reusing your crafts. Many crafts can be exchanged or reused for different seasons. Retooling your wreath is one way to save on space: instead of having a wreath for every occasion, use one wreath base and change out its decorations.
