A beautiful alternative to using "real" flowers, are silk flowers. They make great centerpieces that last! No muss, no fuss, no mess : ) And, most Silk Flower companies offer single flowers where you can make your own bouquet or centerpieces. Here are a few that I like:
This perfectly outstretched silk rose gently floats atop hardened acrylic water. A rich scarlet red hue, this silk arrangement is a tasteful accent for entertaining, from weddings to weekends. But don''t be surprised if your guests can''t resist touching the authentic looking petals!
A bounty of silk hydrangea, wild grasses, seed sprays and fern fronds erupt from our ceramic planter in all the rustic hues of autumn. These replica silk-dried flowers provide a festive centerpiece for fall holidays and gatherings. And one more reason to give thanks... they don''t shed or discolor like their natural counterparts.
Calla Lily Trio
Not the conventional floral type? This provocative trio of calla lilies is the artful evolution of traditional design. Each burgundy wine flute is fashioned with deft detail. Each silk stem is sculpted with geometric elegance. And the finished piece makes a sonorous statement of contemporary style.
Trilogy of Tulips
Soft hues and bold design artfully combine in this poignant piece. Sculpted silk tulips gently cascade in quiet colors of nectarine, pale yellow and white. With textured leaves and contrasting shoots of miniature buds, this fan arrangement makes any interior au courant. Perfect for the non-traditionalist.
