Silk flowers and how to find the best

Professional florists don’t only create amazing displays with fresh blooms. Silk flowers have become increasingly popular because they offer so many benefits. Years ago, silk blooms had a bit of a bad reputation. Fortunately, things have changed and we can now enjoy some of the most spectacular artificial bouquets.

Why choose silk blooms?

When working with silk flowers, you will notice that there are a number of advantages. Firstly, they can be particularly affordable since they last so much longer than fresh varieties. They don’t require water and you don’t need to trim the stems either. The only thing they will need is to be dusted now and then. They should also be kept away from direct sunlight and sources of heat. They are also an excellent option for those who suffer from pollen allergies.

Why quality matters

Since silk flowers offer so many benefits, it’s important to remember that quality really counts. When poorly made, artificial blooms look fake and inferior in their beauty. They may have frayed edges and the shape of the petals may not be perfect either. Not to mention the fact that they may not last as long. They could fade sooner rather than later.

Where to shop

The key to finding the best silk flowers is knowing where to shop. If you browse around your local second hand shop or a discount shop, you will most likely not come across anything worthwhile. When you shop at a reputable florist, you can be sure that the blooms you find will be of the highest quality and you will need to look really closely in order to realise that they are indeed silk and not fresh blooms.

When shopping for silk flowers, you can expect to pay more for quality. It is also worth looking for blooms that have already been arranged in a vase or planter. These blooms will be perfectly arranged so you don’t have to do anything other than find them the perfect home. They also make superb gifts for all occasions.
