Silk Rosesfrom: WeSendFlowers.com
Roses are very beautiful flowers to look at and to smell. Yet they can be expensive and they donít last very long. One way to make sure you can preserve that beauty is to go with silk roses. They are often very well made and unless you look at them very close you may not even be able to tell that they arenít real. Some people choose to spray them with rose perfume and that gives them even more of a feel of being real.
One of the main uses for silk flowers is for wedding bouquets. With real flowers they have to be made in the last day or two before the wedding. This is a time when there is so much going on that they donít need any more things to do. The stress level gets very high when the wedding is approaching and there are too many things left to complete.
With the use of silk roses for the wedding bouquets they can easily be made well in advance. They can be stored in boxes to help them keep their shape. Real roses would also require being refrigerated while the silk ones just have to be carried to the church. They can even be used for the rehearsal wedding if you choose to do so.
Another common use for silk roses is for centerpieces. They can be used for dinner parties or when you are hosting a fun celebration. They can also be used to decorate the tables at a wedding reception. Silk roses are definitely more affordable than real ones and much easier to work with. You donít have to rely on a florist to get them to you and to keep them alive and healthy.
Silk roses can be preserved forever as well. You donít have to worry about them withering and dying. You also donít have to get someone to press them in order for you to have a great memento of your special occasion. If you host a large event you can even allow some of the guests to take home the silk rose arrangements after it is over. They are so lovely that you will be sure to have many takers on this.
