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 d?cor for archways and pillars; gifts for guests; and worn and handheld flowers such as boutonnieres, corsages, and bouquets. A silk bouquet for the bride is one great option to consider. Unlike real flowers, silk flowers stand little chance of getting crushed, losing petals, or coming apart as the bouquet is tossed. Also, the bride can keep her wedding bouquet forever! Any flowers that are used throughout the wedding should be of the best quality. 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.
To Buy or to Rearrange? That is the Question
While I am shopping, I am often tempted to buy yet another decorative piece for my home. This mode of thought not only leaves me constantly wanting for the next available item but also leaves my wallet empty. In all reality, that new exciting purchase may be the first thing I add to my next garage sale list. I have learned (slowly) that often the best solution to having a fresh change is to use what I already have. Some simple rearranging of my furniture, pictures, and knickknacks spruces up my life at home and gives me that fresh home decor feel. Not does this expand my talents, but it helps to keep my wallet fat!
A principle way to decorate your home for the holidays is with a wreath. There are so many wreath options and so many different seasons that any creative crafter can easily feel overrun with them. Storing your wreaths is actually not as big a problem as it may seem. In fact, one of the best ways to store your wreaths is to simply reuse them. Reusing wreaths simply means placing different flower commendations on the same wreath with the changing season. When creating a reusable wreath, you will want a strong foundation. You can attach your flowers or other designs to the wreath using a small amount of glue, a large amount of tape, or a weaving pattern that holds everything together. This technique allows you to cut down on storage space without throwing away or wrecking your wreaths. You can keep several varieties and colors of flowers in one box instead of having 12 or 14 different boxes of wreaths in your garage. On the other hand, if you enjoy having several different wreaths, we recommend getting either plastic containers (there are even some built specifically for wreaths) or a simple shelving system so that none of the wreaths get crushed or damaged.
