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.
My arrangements cross_pollinate the oriental essence that I learned through the art of Ikebana with the practicality that modern technology offers us in the form of lifelike silk flowers. So while I take strong inspiration in the principles of harmony, methods and the spirit of Ikebana for all my designs, it is the ample diversity of silk flowers that allows me to unleash my creativity in ways that I never thought were possible. Sort of a bridge between east and west, or the best of both worlds, if you will.
