Pick and Choose Your Silk Flower Carefully

February 27, 2012 | Comments: 0 | Views: 179

Silk flowers for any floral arrangement can come from any where. I even pick up a flower or two from the dollar store after checking the quality of the petals and you would be surprised that some are very pleasing to the touch and eye. There are always a few that look pleasant on first glance but the manufacturing is poor and the petals are loose and will fall apart when working them into an arrangement. So make sure they are tight and hold to form before selecting them, and check you're pricing, a few stores are very pricey and the quality is very poor. The stores quality of flower supplies range from simple to elaborate but check the quality of each stem cautiously. Check for flaws in the shape of each flower, does the color hold true to the real, are they bold or week in color, is the size too small or large compared to the real, and are there any flaws in the manufacturing, a pimple here or a faded lines within the leaves or stems. A rose should look like a rose and not some distorted imitation of a rose. I examine each flower carefully before purchasing. I want my arrangements to resemble the same quality as a real design.

Every holiday I am held captive in the flower isles of my favorite store and can spend hours looking, choosing and deciding what flower I am using for that season. I want the quality to be good the price to be low and the colors to bold. My door wreaths are made with each season in mind and the flowers I choose reflects that special season. My friends tell me I have too many door wreaths but I don't think I have enough, one for each season and a new one every year.

Same for my silk flower arrangements, if I am creating and arrangement, say for the Fourth of July holiday I want to be sure I have plenty of red white and blue mums on hand. And after decorating inside the house I move to the outside with a bold and beautiful door wreath with the colors of the season and a ribbon to match.

At Christmas the poinsettia is my favorite flower with their gallant reds and big pedals. I love a silk arrangement centerpiece that spreads from end to end on my dinning room table with special candles in the middle that makes my dinning with friends a pleasant and festive experience for all.

All my flowers are hand picked with care and each are analyze before I purchase a single one so the experience of creating a silk floral arrangement is a well through out plan from the beginning. So remember:

• Choose each piece carefully • Check for quality and design • Watch pricing

All of it is a joy for me that will last until I start my next project. Now you also are on your way to creating an experience not easily forgotten.

Flowers have always been my passion and silk floral designs delight me with their vibrant colors, bold style and originality. There is a lot of room for creativity when working with flowers from choosing a container for a table centerpiece, to choosing the right colors and giving in to the imagination as a creator. My hope is to share with you my ideas of creativity that I have developed over the past 20 years. Come visit me at http://www.floralcreationsinspired.com
