Popular uses for artificial flowers

Beautiful artificial flowersThere is a massive revival of artificial flowers happening, and there is a lot of excitement about it! If you want pops of colour throughout the home or you want to have a low-cost way to decorate your next event, artificial flowers are the best thing for you. Let’s take a look at some of the most popular uses for artificial flowers:

Flower Napkin Rings

As an alternative to the metallic versions, floral napkin rings made from silk flowers and ribbon can be beautiful and quirky accessories for your wedding or event.

Wall Art

Artificial flowers have been used many times in artwork, but spraying artificial blooms of all colours and arranging them in a shadow box frame can be an excellent addition to the home.

Revamp Your Lamps

Lighting options can be boring for the home, but lampshades can be revamped – especially in the nursery. Silk flowers can make for a unique addition to any little girl’s bedroom.

Floral Cloche

One of the beauties of fake flowers is that they can be used anywhere at any time in the house. You don’t need the flowers to be in the light, nor do you have to put them in specific places to keep watering them. A cloche is very Disney, and you can bring the outside into the home with them.

Hanging Flowers

An excellent decorative look for the dining room, using artificial flowers as a hanging arrangement can make a change from chandeliers over the table. You can change the flowers you use by the season, too, as they will never go out of fashion.

Party Garlands

There is a huge market for hanging garlands for events, and flowers can be colour coordinated to match. If you want to choose fresh flowers, remember the cost. Silk flowers feel just as real, and all you need to do is arm yourself with a glue gun and some ribbon, and you can create your own garland in the colour of your choice.

Flower Crowns

Party pieces are becoming more popular, with flower crowns suiting any occasion and use. Hawaiian themed parties, 60s themed parties, and even colour themed events can be excellent places to have a flower crown. The perfect selfie is a moment away!

Flower Fairy Lights

No garden party is complete without fairy lights, and silk flowers encasing each individual bulb can give a blast of colour and beauty to any summery night.

Bridal Bouquet

Weddings are expensive, but with the right artificial flowers on hand, you can have a bridal bouquet at a fraction of the cost of what you would get with fresh flowers.

There are many uses for artificial flowers, and all you need to do is decide what colour blossoms you want to get started!

Why choose artificial flowers

Flowers are utterly beautiful for any occasion, but fresh flowers can also be incredibly expensive. They smell amazing, look fantastic, and are a real talking point when they’re in season, but there is a place in the world for artificial flowers, too.

Artificial flowers have a ton of benefits that many people don’t consider. Having the best doesn’t mean that you have to pay extortionate prices. Especially when there are artificial flowers that look just as fantastic and realistic as the real thing. Let’s take a look at some of the best reasons that you should go for artificial flowers:

Artificial Flowers Look Real

Real flowers that engulf the senses are a very expensive investment for a wedding or an occasion, and they do look stunning. The thing is, they die. After a while, you’re going to watch your money die just because the flowers are real. Artificial flowers can be as luxurious as you want them to be, and to an untrained eye, they look just as real.

They Survive Anywhere

Most of the time, flowers in a vase have to be in the ray of light of the sun to survive. You also have to keep real flowers watered and fed to ensure longevity. With artificial flowers, you can have florals anywhere in the house – by a window or not – and you don’t have to try to keep them alive. All they’ll need is an occasional dust!

Seasons Don’t Count

Fresh flowers are generally cut in season, and the flowers that suit the season are cheaper than forced growth for out of season blooms. Your favorite flower won’t necessarily bloom through the year, but with artificial ones, you can have any flower you like, and they’ll stay in the house as long as you want. Spritz them with scent, and they’ll smell just as good, too!

No More Sneezing

Pollen is one of the most common allergens, and it’s something that puts people off of having flowers in the home. Instead, artificial flowers can give you the arrangement that you want, without any of the sneezing that comes with it!

They’re Cost Effective

If you plan to have a beautiful bouquet for your wedding, centerpieces for the tables and buttonholes for the men, you’ll be looking at quite a hefty bill for flowers.

With silk flowers, they’ll feel like the real thing, look like the real thing, and they’ll be a much cheaper cost. Instead of needing to pay for your bridal bouquet to be pressed for posterity, you can keep hold of your silk flowers as they will last forever. If you do opt for a fresh bridal bouquet, you could still have a silk version made so that you can throw it for the tradition!

Artificial flowers have more than a place in the world alongside their fresh counterparts, so why not choose artificial flowers for your next event.

Thinking of Mothering Sunday

Mothering Sunday is on the 31st March.

Traditionally in the UK young people working in some of the big houses would be allowed home for this day and they would take a cake or a present home to their Mother.

Nowadays we usually buy a special bunch of flowers. There aren’t that many wild flowers around at this time of the year but there are some lovely wild artificial flowers on our website.

This collection has been photographed in a tall very narrow vase.  Search the wild flower section for some wonderful simple ideas.  This collection of flowers has columbines, lavender and wild dahlia.  https://www.withycombefair.co.uk/wild-flowers-13-c.asp

Spring Flowers

Our Spring Category has some very realistic tulips making a colourful display until the real comes along and why not leave the real one blooming in the garden.

There are lots of advantages with artificial flowers and the fact that they can be bent is a useful one.  Some of them these days can be put in water so that they be arranged amongst real flowers.
