I love the appearance of fresh flowers right after they've been cut, but even with floral plant food in the vase, the flowers start to droop after a few days and are dead within a week or so

When Lillian Breyer, founder of http://www.SilkFlowersToLove.com, would create a fresh flower arrangement for her home, she was always disappointed with the condition of her flowers after just a few days in a vase.
"I love the appearance of fresh flowers right after they've been cut, but even with floral plant food in the vase, the flowers start to droop after a few days and are dead within a week or so," said Breyer. "I've always disliked the idea of artificial flowers, so I never gave them much consideration"
However, Breyer's dissatisfaction with fresh flowers eventually got the better of her, and she decided to try her first silk arrangement.
"I started with clear crystal marbles in the bottom of a crystal compote, then I added silk flowers and created a simple arrangement. When I was finished, I stepped back and realized the imitations were a vast improvement. In fact, they were downright spectacular."
Breyer's experience inspired her to create more silk flower arrangements, and over time her creations motivated her to launch her website.
"I have a lot of great silk flowers on the website, though I think my favorites have to be silk orchids," said Breyer. "In the future I will be adding a number of seasonal pieces including wreaths for the upcoming holidays."
While most of the silk flowers on her website come in premade arrangements, Breyer also will make single stem flowers available so that her customers can make their own arrangements, which she plans to discuss on her new blog at http://www.SilkFlowersGuru.com.
"While I am still a little more partial to fresh flower arrangements, a lot of the same techniques can be used to arrange silk flowers," said Breyer. "On the blog I plan to discuss some of the floral design techniques I've adapted over the years, as well as talk about how to care for silk flowers."
Whether looking for a perennial centerpiece for a table, a splash of elegance for the mantle, or a maintenance free ornament for the office, a silk flower arrangement from Breyer's website is the perfect addition for the home, office or a gift on a special occasion.
