It is a growing trend in weddings to see more and more silk flowers among the decorations. Roses by far are the prominent silk flower selection for weddings. Similarly, there is a growing trend for silk roses in homes today. The prime reason for this movement is the resemblance to the actual flower and the durability of the silk. The durability of the roses depends on how well they are maintained; they will last a couple years if they are not kept up, and decades if they are preserved well. Roses can be displayed in a variety of ways, from a garland wrapped around curtains to a silk rose arrangement for the dining room table. Remember that roses are best seen directly, so if your roses form your centerpiece, have some flowers pointing in different directions so that some can be seen from anywhere in the whole room. Adding a scent to your roses also gives your home a nice touch.
Orchids are one of the most dominant species of flowers. Because the natural orchid flowers have so many distinct variations, their silk counterparts are also as numerous. All orchids are known for their beautiful leaf pattern, which is semi-symmetrical in appearance. The orchid flower is semi symmetric, open, and has striking color combinations. Because they are so eye-catching but delicate, they should be the star of any flower arrangements they are placed in. One beautiful way to design these flowers is to let them hang over the edges of a beautiful vase. Another is to place them as the centerpiece of an arrangement, with various greenery encircling them. Though most have bright colors, there are also several selections of milder tones and even shades of brown. Universality is another trait of these flowers: they can be used to decorate homes regardless of the season.
Making Your Workplace A Little More Green
Did you ever stop to consider the similarities between a cubicle and a prison cell? Empty, pasty walls and a desk with nothing but computer equipment and papers do little to break up the monotony of the day. This environment certainly does little to promote resourcefulness. Instead of a plain or ordinary office, there are many things that you can do to invite a warm, friendly, creative atmosphere. Adding a large tree to your office instantly adds detail, life, and color. A natural choice is to go with a silk or artificial plant, since you don’t have to worry about giving it proper sunlight and water. You can further promote this nature-like atmosphere by adding a few small plants or flowers and a desktop fountain. It is surprising how much these little things can change the mood of your business and give your work area a more natural uplifting feeling to get you through the day!
How to Synchronize Colors for Flower Arrangements
When designing with fake or real flowers, it is important to coordinate color. If you stop by a flower shop and study how colors are synchronized in your favorite floral designs, you will gain some ideas of how you want your own floral arrangements to look. Also, due to today’s wonderful technology you can find a vast selection of flower arrangement pictures online. Keep in mind that there are two ways to arrange flowers. The first is a natural arrangement, which coordinates similar regional or seasonal flowers. The goal here is to recreate the feeling of being in a field of flowers. The other technique is to bring together flowers based on their shapes and colors. This style is commonly found at events, like weddings, and other celebrations. When using this strategy, choose multiple tints of one color for the design.
