Traditional red will dominate the Christmas season again this year, but watch for a greater variety of fresh evergreens, berries, roes and accents. Other popular color schemes include darker reds and crimson shades, as well as non_traditional palettes such as purple and turquoise. Textures will continue to play an important role, with flower arrangements featuring everything from pinecones and cedar to intricate handmade ornaments. Expect to see more glass bowls, cubes and vases of every size, especially in colors. With an emphasis on home and hearth, decorator cachepots and family heirloom containers will also play a part.
Making the Wedding Bouquet _ Regardless of who you are in relation to the bride, you may be overwhelmed by the task of assembling her wedding bouquet. However, using silk flowers can make your job much easier. Most silk flowers are incredibly realistic and should look beautiful at the wedding. The most frequently used flower in a wedding bouquet, real or silk, is the rose. Some of the simplest bouquets are the prettiest; your bride may be enchanted by a spherical bouquet of multicolored roses garnished with greenery. If you are looking for something less traditional, you can change the species of flowers, use a few topiary elements, or change the overall design of the bouquet. The bride, of course, should be presented with a bouquet that she will adore. Since you are using silk and not real flowers, you can prepare the bouquet long before the wedding day and ensure that it is exactly what the bride wants.
