Decorating with Silk Topiaries
As you decorate with topiaries, make sure there is adequate room for your plants to look well-designed. Remember there are many topiary sizes, shapes, and styles that you can choose from. If you plan to place a topiary into your office, we recommend that you choose a tall circular topiary style. We also recommend that you choose a silk topiary. This way you will not have to worry about water, bugs, or plan food. Another place where the benefits of silk plants will be helpful is your church. You can find silk topiaries small enough to adorn your desk and large enough to fill a large area of a room. Be creative in your choice of topiaries and what you use to decorate with them!
Using Liquid Illusion With Your Silk Flowers
In a world of silk flower design, there is a newer technique known as the liquid illusion arrangement. Liquid illusion refers to the technique of making flower arrangements appear to be in water. The value this adds to decorating to silk flowers is important. Silk flowers are all about creating the illusion of reality. Because of this, creating the likeness of being watered really adds to the value of the silk flower arrangement. If you want to add a liquid illusion to your own silk arrangements, there are many ways to go about it. A strong gelatin mixture is one way to create a liquid illusion. We also recommend going to your local craft store and asking for assistance in creating this liquid illusion. Many customer-service representatives of these customers have put together flower arrangements themselves and will know what to recommend.
Creating a Centerpiece
If you would like to add some flowers to your home, consider creating a floral arrangement for a centerpiece. Centerpieces are usually placed on the dining room table, coffee table, or other prominent area in your home. Hopefully your centerpiece will not only draw attention, it will incorporate elements already in place in your house. If you arrange your centerpiece carefully, you can create a piece that is well-balanced and causes your audience to take in the whole creation. For instance, a flower centerpiece that has an X. pattern or direction causes viewers to their eyes from the top left to the bottom right and vice versa. Some arrangements do this by having long strands crossing in the middle. Another great design to incorporate is an arch. The arch can be accomplished by using a variety of flowers, grass, or other shrubbery forming a dome-like shape, with flowers weaving through it. If you would like to find out more about centerpiece designs, there are many pictures available on the internet; home decoration magazines also have great ideas.
Making Sure Your Plants Get the Right Amount of Water
Supplying your plants with the right amount of ware is not hard to do, but it helps to know a few basic rules. It is all too easy to douse our plants with too much water. Excessive water drains nutrients your plant needs from the soil. Also, if your plant is continually stuck in water, its roots will gradually become rotted. A great solution to keep your plants healthy and well watered is to look in your home decor gardening section; they will have a lot of plant waterers. They are made to slowly release water into the soil in proper quantities.
