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.
Creating floral designs that catch a viewers eyes is a skill which good flower designers have. Just like an artist who creates a piece of artwork that captures the viewers attention, the florist needs to be able to create a design that pulls a viewer into a floral design. When pullled into the design, the viewer experiences something that must be good about the designer. It will help them to think positively about the designer.
