Do you have any decorating suggestions for arranging silk flower bouquets?
A. Keep your silk flower
bouquet as natural-looking as possible. A casual
elegance coupled with a modern
simplicity is quite
fashionable. First of all, if you have a beautiful home you will want to skip fake dew drops,
crafty low grade polyester material, very
"waxy" stems that do not look real
(cheap poly-stems) and
"drop in" bouquets.
If you want a beautiful silk
flower arrangement, go with premium, natural silk flower stems
foliages that are
botanically correct and indistinguishable from real flowers and pay the extra
dollar. For arranging we
suggest using a glass vase to accentuate the quality of your
flowers from stem to bloom and for that
finishing touch and to anchor your flower stems
consider adding polished
river rocks to the
bottom of your vase. The texture and natural
earth tone colors will really pull the whole look
Acrylic water can also look very nice and natural it gives the
appearance of faux water.

adequate amount of flowers in your vase or
container. Roses, Calla Lilies, Sweet peas,
Tulips or Hydrangeas all look great massed together
for a bountiful silk floral bouquet.
If you already
have your vase, there are two questions to consider in deciding the quantity of
that you should buy:
1. How wide is
the mouth of your vase or container? Let that be your guide.
2. Will you be
using a small glass tumbler within a vase? Then you would adjust the
number of flower stems accordingly.

flower used, bouquet style (hand tied, presentation, posy, etc.)
and the stature of the bride or bridesmaid.
Flower bouquets usually range from one to three dozen flower stems.
