Silk or Artificial flowers are becoming more and more popular because people just don’t have the time to nurture and look after fresh flowers. Also having to replace fresh flowers every couple of weeks can become very expensive unless you are receiving them as a gift.
The varied colours and designs available when choosing silk flowers now make them very desirable throughout the year. You can have specific arrangements for different times of the year, such as artificial fruit, pine cones, with orange brown leaves in a basket arrangement displayed for Autumn or Fall. These can be packed away when you decorate for Christmas and bring out your Christmas Wreaths and Poinsettias plants or Holly Christmas decorations. In Spring these can be replaced with your Spring tulips and daffodils, and finally replace this arrangement with a bright bloom for throughout the summer months.
The key difference between silk and fresh flowers is that, whilst fresh flowers will wilt and discolour within a couple of weeks or so, silk flowers will remain vibrant and full of life for many years to come. So simply rotate your flower arrangements throughout the year, giving your home a fresh feel and look every few months.
However, if you’d prefer to have the same flowers all year round that are not linked to particular seasons, then you can buy any variety you fancy, of any colour, at any time of year!
When buying silk flowers, they are not dependent on the seasons like certain fresh flowers, so you can get most varieties all year round, particularly those used in silk or artificial wedding bouquets.
Due to their flexibility artificial and silk flowers are used increasingly more often in weddings because they can be purchased in advance without any worry of spoilage at the last minute, provided they are looked after accordingly.
This means that by choosing silk flowers you can eliminate a lot of stress especially when preparing for a special occasion, such as a wedding ceremony or Christmas event.
Silk flowers can also cost a lot less than fresh ones. For these reasons and many more, silk flowers are more economical than real ones, so it’s a win-win situation!
One particularly important positive to using silk flowers or sending them is that they don’t affect people who suffer from hay fever or those who have other related allergies. This means hay fever suffers can now also enjoy flowers where they otherwise could not.
This means you can decorate your home or office comfortably and everyone can enjoy the beauty of silk flowers collectively, without the unpleasant bouts of sneezing and wheezing!
As silk flowers do not die and cannot carry bacteria, like fresh flowers do in their water, silk flowers can also be sent to hospital wards to cheer up a dreary bedside, where fresh flowers are no longer allowed.
