A floral arrangement will do many things.

  • It can enhance the style of your room 

  • Bring out subtle colors 

  • Fill up an empty space

  • Be a focal point 

What makes an arrangement a disaster is to choose colors outside of your scheme and the wrong style.


The first step is to decide the style of your room.

  • Is it traditional, contemporary, country french, etc?

  • Next, what are the colors in the room or the color(s) you want to bring out from the colors

  • you have

  • Stay within the color scheme and avoid adding any additional color(s), You don't want your arrangement to look out of place.

  • (Christmas and other holiday decor are the exceptions to the rule as they are seasonal)

Most silk flowers can be cared for with a regular dusting using a feather duster. For a more thorough cleaning, a soft paint brush can also be used to dust each individual petal and to get into the nook and crannies by holding the petal while dusting. Do not use water or any liquid on silks. There are also floral sprays made for cleaning silk and dried flowers.
