For anyone who does not have a green thumb, finding something to brighten up the home or occasion is sometimes a difficult thing to do. Some people stress out when buying a potted bloom since they know that it will not last long in their hands.
However, for those who love the look of the real thing, but do not have the heart to kill yet another one, they often turn to silk plants to fill the void. Artificial flowers have become more popular of late and are often used at big occasions too.
Indeed, this kind of bloom has become so life-like these days that some people use them for their wedding bouquets too. Imagine that, even a bride would prefer to have something exotic in this lovely material than risk a real bouquet wilting and turning brown before the wedding day.
Bridesmaids too can have their headdresses and bouquets made in the same materials so that the maids can manhandle them with impunity and they still look good!
But people are becoming very clever when they use these faux blooms for weddings and functions. What they do is to have a lot of greenery and leaves arranged in the pot or bouquet and place the faux blooms here and there to give it some color.
People are not very observant and they often mistake the blooms for the real thing, particularly if they are the exotic varieties which are not seen very often.
This works particularly well if the colors used throughout the wedding are a little out of the norm and there is usually some faux blooms that will mix and match with anything that the bride wants.
Table decorations are done in the same way but since they are everlasting blooms, they can be given out as gifts after the event and people will have a long-term memento of the big day.
For those who want to turn their hands to something very arty when they are making decorations for the wedding, some will separate the blooms and stick two or three directly onto a photo frame with a photo of the bride and groom included. These make exceptional wedding favors and, because they were made by hand, they mean that much more to those who receive them.
