Making My Home More Beautiful With Flowers

One day after I got home from a business meeting, I realized that my home needed a little more visual appeal. Instead of filling my home with loads of boring knick-knacks, I decided to invest in natural flowers and beautiful floral arrangements. I worked with a local florist to provide me with local, seasonal flowers, and it was incredible. My home smelled better and felt like it was alive, instead of looking boring. I wanted to make a blog dedicated to people who want to infuse their homes with a few great floral arrangements. Read more here about how to choose a florist and the right flowers.

3 Excellent Reasons To Use Silk Flowers For Your Next Event

Most people will agree that flowers are an essential decor item at many important events and parties. Flowers add a beauty that nothing else can and guests will appreciate how gorgeous they are. However, flowers can be expensive and sometimes difficult to maintain. However, there are other options besides just real flowers. Silk flowers are made to look just like real flowers and can add much beauty to your party. 

You Can Use Them Over And Over Again

While real flowers are gorgeous, you purchase them knowing that you are only going to be able to use them for a single event. If you are someone who likes to host events or throw parties quite often, this can get expensive quite quickly. If you choose to purchase silk flowers instead, you are still getting gorgeous custom flowers, but you can use them over and over again at different events. If you store the silk flowers in an area where they will not get smashed or wet, but remain upright, then they will stay in perfect condition for you. And if your flowers get a little dusty or dirty, you can easily clean them by putting them in a bag full of saltOver time, you can build up quite the collection of silk flowers so you will have the colors and styles that you need for any event, without spending any money at all on more flowers. 

They Can Be Made Into Any Flower That You Would Like 

One downside to having an off-season wedding is the fact that the flowers you want may not currently be in season. This can put a big damper on your perfect wedding, unless of course you decide to use silk flowers instead. Silk flowers can be made to look like any flower that you would like, so no need to worry if your wedding is in the dead of winter. You will get the arrangements that you want, with not only the type of flowers that you want, but the perfect colors as well. You can handpick the silk used for the flowers as well.

Bugs And Allergies Aren't An Issue

While real flowers are gorgeous, they can attract bugs, especially if they are placed outside. These bugs can hamper your party and are especially gross if food is being served. Silk flowers are also great if you have any guests that are allergic to real flowers because this entirely removes the problem. Talk with a professional, like Primrose and Poppy, to see what kinds of flowers would go will with your next event.
