When decorating your office or home, fresh flowers are a popular choice. They have a way of brightening up any room and, in an office environment, they have a way of making your clients feel even more welcome. Bright flower bouquets are extremely effective during colder months. Although everything in is relatively colourless outside, you don’t have to keep it dull inside too.
When displaying fresh flowers, you will need to replace the water, trim the stems, and eventually replace the bouquet when the flowers perish. Replacing fresh flowers every few weeks might not be in everyone’s budget which is why artificial flowers are so popular.
Artificial flowers last considerably longer and you don’t have to worry about them perishing. You also don’t have to change the water or trim the stems. The only thing you will need to do is dust them off from time to time in order to keep them looking fresh, beautiful and realistic.
Fresh blooms wilt and die if they are set in direct sunlight. Artificial flowers will not die from the sun but they will become faded and they could even become brittle. Either way, both types of flowers need to be kept out of the sun. It’s also worth selecting several seasonal artificial bouquets so that you can change them out every few months if not more often. This will help create the illusion that you are displaying fresh blooms.
When the holidays come around, you can display holiday-themed bouquets and, if your business closes for a week or two, you don’t have to worry about taking care of your cut flowers or potted plant.
Another advantage is that you don’t need to worry about the heat of summer or the cold of winter affecting your flowers. Fresh blooms and plants are easily affected by the weather whereas artificial varieties are not.
Finally, don’t forget that artificial flowers do not have pollen so they are the perfect option if you are worried about allergies or the mess that pollen can make.
