Artificial flowers have come a long way. From the days of hideous heavy petaled plastic daisies and roses that our grandmothers used to have in their homes to breathtaking silk orchids and forsythia, freesia and magnolias. The silk flower market is a growing one with many silk flower manufacturers paying attention to detail, and to the growing acceptance of silk flowers.
Many brides today are choosing silk (faux) flowers instead of real flowers for their bouquets. Aside from the fact that it's almost impossible to tell the difference between silk flowers and real flowers, a bride getting married in Autumn can now carry lovely cabbage roses and spring flowers in her bouquet - even though cabbage roses bloom in the spring. Using silk flowers a bride can have any type of flower she wants in a bouquet any time of year. Also, she has a bouquet that she can keep forever, without the expense and trouble of having her fresh bouquet preserved. The price of a silk bouquet comes in much under that price, making it in most cases a better buy for the money. Of course, all your wedding flower needs from hair pieces, to boutonnieres to centrepieces and arrangements for the church can be made from silk flowers by our Cape Town florists.
Silk flowers and plants are perfect for use in the home too. There are hundreds of different types of silk plants to choose from. Do you yearn to have an english ivy cascading over your mantle, but you have a cat? As a cat owner you know that english ivy is poisonous to your cat, so you don't dare. Do you have a dark corner that you want to spruce up with a variegated hostas? Even though they are shade loving hostas need some natural light. Are you tired of watering and babying your real plants only to find them not happy with anything you do? Silk plants are the perfect answer.
You can purchase lovely wreaths and swags to use in your home in silk. Along with pre made silk flower arrangements you can also purchase some silk flowers "by the stem" which allows you to use your creativity making your own arrangements.
High-quality silk arrangements created with exceptional care and exquisite floral style are now available online from your favourite Cape Town florist, Fabulous Flowers.
These arrangements last a lifetime and are easy to maintain and look after. For more information email us [email protected]
Whether you are planning a special occasion for your true love or you just have a hobby of collecting silk flowers, then you have taste, and for that you must be applauded. Silk (artificial) flowers make the most beautiful flower arrangements and you need not worry about the flowers dying on you. They can add character to any dull room, and with the variety of different colours they can brighten up a table. The fabric last and the only cleaning you will probably have to do it wiping the dust off the leaves.
These flowers make beautiful bouquets, and with your creativity you can send a bouquet to a special person in your life or even to say thank you to someone that has just highlighted your day with just a simple smile or a few words of inspiration. This is also a great way if you want to keep your home full of flowers. Think about it, you won't have to water flowers again, or if you have always had the habit of forgetting to water flowers and worrying about the poor things dying of thirst.
Don't think that because they are artificial that they are going to look artificial. Like fresh flowers that need to be replaced after a few days or a few weeks, silk flowers keep their beauty and colour time and time again, and the nice thing is that the artificial flowers can be made to look like fresh flowers.
You will probably get questions like, "Where did you get these beautiful flowers?" and "They have been here so long. What are you feeding them that keep their colour and freshness?" Obviously it will be up to you to give the secret away, or you could just leave them in suspense about how beauty finds its way into your home and stays there for as long as you want them there.
If you see a certain silk flower that you just love, take notice of it so that you can look for it when you're planning a special event. There's many places online that also offer a good selection of silk flowers, so check online too.
