by Lori 20. January 2009 03:41

Simple, yet vibrant and oh so pretty, this 24 1/2 inch tall arrangement of 36 beautiful Freesia flower stems in a crystal clear classic vase holds just enough acrylic water to give a realistic and classic look to this artificial flower arrangements.

Envision this statuesque arrangement as the focal point on your kitchen island.   Gather the family around and chat about the weekends events and even your 8 year old son complements you on the arrangement.  Now THAT is some arrangement if even an 8 year old notices!

As the year moves on you will see words like Gardenesque, Modern, Exotic and Classic to describe different flowers and arrangements.  This elegant Freesia arrangement falls within the “Modern” flower arrangement category and comes in red, cream, orange and yellow.

Combining the many assortments of artificial Freesia flower stems in colors ranging from white, yellow, orange, rust, orchid (and many more) with other arrangements will add texture and a kiss of fun.  I used to marvel at the live Freesia plants my mother-in-law displayed in her kitchen.  They always seemed so delicate.  Artificial freesia still have that delicate look but believe me they are very hearty and will last for years.

Ultimate Baby Gift on the Cheap!

by MJG 10. January 2009 08:14

Why not construct one yourself to have the most talked about gift at the next baby shower you attend?

Start with a dozen silk flowers, a hundred disposable diapers, some decorative ribbon and a decorative platter so mom gets something out of it too. Still don’t want to spend that kind of money? Do like grandma used to do and wrap a piece of cardboard in aluminum foil and use that for the base.

The choice of ribbon and flowers will determine the “flavor” of your cake. Pictured above is a Groovy looking set of cakes using artificial daisies. You can give it a tropical or Hawaiian theme  by changing the ribbon and using silk gladiolas or faux hibiscus. You could go classic using some of our artificial roses or get the safari look using some colorful peony flowers. Mix some silk mums with a fun print ribbon and you’ve got a great modern look to your diaper cake.

The interesting point of this post is in the shoes. Take your favorite silk flower, cut the stem off and hot glue the flower to a clip-on earing stud. After the glue has dried, you can snap it onto your shoes like you’ll see in the snap of Scarlett at left.

This technique is great for adding a little bit of spring to any outfit as you can apply your new flower clip to belts, headbands, backpacks, necklaces, or whatever else strikes your fancy!
