The Diverse Applications of Silk Flower Arrangements Silk flower arrangements have been available for decades, offering artificial but realistic floral displays for both the home and weddings. For many years the application of silk flower arrangements has been restricted to these two key areas. However, this is no longer the case. The production techniques used in making modern silk flower arrangements ensure that it is very difficult to discern that silk flowers are not fresh flowers. Moreover, corporate customers are beginning to realise the significant advantages that silk flowers have over fresh flowers. First and foremost, silk flowers offer greater value for money than even a single bunch of some fresh flowers. Whereas fresh flowers will wilt and die within a week of their purchase, silk flowers can be used again and again for many years. The cost savings offered by silk flowers are therefore obvious. Only on exceptionally close inspection could a passerby discern that silk flowers were not the real thing. Moreover, with simple dusting and rearranging silk flowers can continue to appear to be fresh and genuine for many years to come. What is more, numerous different combinations and arrangements can be achieved even with the same silk flowers. Secondly, silk flowers relieve time pressures in a hectic world. In an environment such as an office or a hotel flowers need to be present on a constant basis. With the lifecycle of fresh flowers this means that new flowers would have to be purchased at least on a weekly basis. This can be a time-consuming process particularly in a city environment where the florist may be a distance away through heavy traffic. Moreover, fresh flowers must be attended to on a regular basis in order to preserve them for as long as possible. Silk flowers create none of these time pressures. Once they have been purchased they obvious do not have to be purchased again and again and the only maintenance that is required is dusting along with the rest of the interior fittings. In the majority of businesses flower arrangements are a luxury or a finishing touch rather than an essential. By reducing the expense of flower arrangements and reducing the amount of time that must be dedicated to their maintenance, both time and money can be spent on areas more critical to the company’s operations. In a time of streamlining due to the economic climate this makes a lot of sense for large and small businesses alike. However, as well as having a newly discovered application in the corporate world, silk flower arrangements are just as relevant today for the home or for weddings as they ever have been. Using silk flowers means that the flowers of choice can be acquired irrespective of the time of year or the stock held by the local florist. Silk flower arrangements can be created to match the exact requirements of the customer and can be kept as a memento of that special day for a lifetime, looking just as good as they did on the day.
