Wedding season is here and most people are going overboard thinking about what to do and what things to buy. The most important part of a wedding party is the decoration and every year new things come up and people have to think newer ways of decorating. • Flowers too are a pivotal part of any party and arranging them aesthetically and in a way that would appeal to the guests is equally important. Initially, original flora or real flora was used extensively. They still are because the beauty and fragrance of a bouquet of flowers cannot be mimicked by artificial ones.
But slowly, people have started using artificial flora because of obvious benefits. Not only are they low-maintenance but they also last for a long time. No one needs to periodically spray them with water. As a matter of fact, they are also pretty inexpensive which makes them a favorite with bulk users and buyers.
Silk Flowers are now becoming a rage with many people. Silk flowers do not necessarily mean that the flora are made up of silk of any kind, but they are flowers which are made of any artificial material like thermocol, organdie paper, velvet etc. Silk flowers have been there since a long time, even in Ancient Egypt, Papyrus flowers were used for decorations. With the passage of time, silk flowers have changed in their types and have slowly become more prevalent in wedding functions or parties of any sorts.
The reason why they are called silk flowers is because most of this artificial flora is made of silk. Silk is predominantly the most popular material for flowers because it can be easily bent and retains its shape for a long time. Now, other materials are blended with silk because just making silk flowers was proving to be expensive for the manufacturers and the buyers. Cotton and polyester are some of the materials mixed in Silk Flowers.
Here are some points you should keep in mind before thinking of buying silk flowers: • Silk flowers are manufactured in a variety of types just to suit your comfort, need and price range. You should decide beforehand the kind you want and only then buy them. • The types available are:
Bush Types-These come in a bunch and are popular as gifts. For those who have a little bit experience in flower decoration, you an buy the bush types and with a little bit of creativity, you can easily create a beautiful design out of the bushes.
Stem Types- These have single plants and can be custom made to suit the needs of the customer. These are by far the cheapest you can find and you can arrange them according to your needs. Apart from that, with a little bit of designing help from magazines or the internet you can even have a beautiful bouquet of silk flora.
Premade Arrangements- These types are already arranged and you can have them in baskets, wreaths and vases. These are the best choices for those who have no experience whatsoever in decorating flora
