How to Use Artificial Flowers in Home Decor and Wedding Parties
Quality and material
The first thing you need to keep in mind before choosing which flower to use is to realize the quality and the material with which it was made. And in this respect + artificial flowers have evolved a lot in recent times.
Most of them are produced in plastic, fabric or EVA. The choice of material will depend on the type of decoration you intend, but in general, the fabric flowers are the most realistic.
The more natural the better.
Even if you choose a good quality material, the artificial flower can still have that artificial ... face! That's because some artificially reproduced flowers do not really exist in nature, like blue flowers, for example, something very rare to find.
The size of the flower is also important to get close to the real. Some models simply do not fit the size of the natural flower.
Artificial flower color
Since we are talking about color, it is important to emphasize that the clearer and more neutral the artificial flower, the more realistic it will appear. So, prefer white flowers, cream, roses and light yellow.
Artificial flowers of dark or vibrant tint, such as red, wine and golden yellow, for example, are not indicated when the intention is to conceal the artificial aspect of the flower.
Capriche in the choice of pot
The vase or other container where the flower will be placed should be chosen with care and attention. First, set the type of vase from the home décor, which can be more rustic or modern.
Then choose a vase that matches the type of flower and behave the size of the arrangement that will be made in it.
To make the artificial flower arrangement even more beautiful invest in pine bark, moss, pebbles and other elements that can usually be found in natural pots.
You can also spray a few drops of essence with the fragrance of the chosen artificial flower.
Artificial flowers do not need watering, fertilizers, pruning or exposure to sunlight, but they are not maintenance free. Periodically it is necessary to wash them with water and neutral soap to remove the dust and other types of dirt that can impregnate in its surface.
Advantages of Using Artificial Flowers in Home Decor and Wedding Parties
Artificial flowers are for life. That's why you do not have to worry about the durability of your arrangement. And this characteristic of artificial flowers is especially interesting for those who need to decorate a wedding party, for example.
The arrangements can be made well in advance, avoiding unforeseen circumstances. Another advantage is that you do not have to worry about the weather and the temperature. Rain or shine, the artificial flowers remained intact for the party.
Price is one of the first things one thinks of when talking about artificial flowers. That's because the feeling you have is that they really are a lot cheaper than the natural ones. In part this is true, especially since the artificial flowers can be used later. But the cost of a wedding party decorated with artificial or natural flowers does not vary greatly.
One must consider things other than the flowers themselves, such as the time and dedication of the decorator to make the arrangements. And at that point, whether the flowers are artificial or not.
Another important point to be evaluated is that some artificial flowers, given their quality and realism, usually cost the same amount of natural flowers.
So if you are thinking of decorating your home or wedding party with artificial flowers do a comparison with the natural flowers and consider whether the change really is worth it.
Freedom in creating the arrangements
