It was much later in my life that I came to the United States. Being fond of arts and crafts, I soon made my way to many specialty stores, where I discovered, with great amazement, the quality and variety of silk flowers. There were so many and they looked so lifelike! I also noticed that many people here used silk flower arrangements to decorate their living and working spaces. At first, the notion of using silk flowers instead of real ones was odd to me and I resisted it. But that changed after seeing the quality and vividness of silk flowers, and realizing the practicality of long_lasting, low maintenance flower arrangements. This lead me to the idea of using silk flowers to create Ikebana_inspired flower arrangements.
Decorating with Silk Tulips _ Silk tulips are definitely in the top five in terms of popularity for silk flowers. Tulips' shape and petals make them very distinguishable. Tulips can meet a variety of home decor needs. Tulips are unique in that they are not stuck in a certain classification in terms of festivities or a particular time of year. In contrast, roses belong to the world of romance and appreciation, and should not necessarily be used for other decorative purposes (such as a "just because" bouquet). Because of their long slender design, tulips require very little space to occupy and to beautify. Tulips arrangement placement within a home can be very flexible as they work very well as backgrounds for more elaborate flowers, or can stand alone if desired.
