A simple and inexpensive addition to the corner of this room is all that was needed to soften the edges a bit. Many times you see professional pictures of homes that have been professionally designed and arranged. This does nothing to help the average person who not only doesn't posses the money to hire a professional designer but may not have the designer eye. Above is a picture that one of our customers sent us regarding a corner in their home that was just simply too bare and was missing something. After placing one of our weeping ficus trees in the corner rendering a softer look and filled the room with some lush greenery. This gives you a realistic picture of what these trees can do for your home, and for those of you with a designer's eye, the sky is the limit.

We get a ton of questions about the white saguaro cactus that we carry. Most are asking if this is the way they look naturally or are they green? The answer to this question is that they are both depending on the weather circumstances. When there is a frost in the desert it can accumulate on the green saguaro like in the picture above. This creates a unique look on the cactus that can only be found during certain times of the year. We carry this style of artificial cactus in our line due to the fact it is so beautiful and can be a great focal point in a room. If your looking for something different and unique for your home or next special event take a look at our white frosted artificial saguaro cacti below.

Having a beach wedding? Try using large white flowers to contrast against the blue waters of the ocean. Some foliage such as palm trees around the base of the alter or on each side of the isle adds some added green to really make it pop. You can get really creative when working with a beach wedding but remember to weigh everything down because beaches tend to get a little windy and you don't want decorations blowing away during your ceremony.
If your hosting your wedding at a golf course, don't be afraid to use color. The pop of color will shine through the green background and highlight your white dress. If you can't manage the colors you need in real flowers, then silk flowers are always in season and usually in the colors to match the theme of your wedding. Using the colors that are already present at the golf course can really make your wedding look like a million bucks
Here's a unique idea. Use rose petals to put the letter of the first initial of the last name or names in the isle. This can easily be used in an indoor wedding with silk rose petals as most churches don't allow real rose petals inside anymore for fear of staining the carpet. White colors work well against a green background and will always be in theme with any wedding. Outlining the isle with the same color petals and some flower arrangements in pots will frame in the letter nicely. If it's windy that day and you still want to add this decor item then try using some spray tacky glue on the grass to help hold the petals in place during the ceremony.
Instead of a traditional fabric runner you can also opt to use rose petals for the entire runner. Using color around the outside of the runner to frame it in then fill with white rose petals for a beautiful and classy look. If you're looking for the colors of your wedding's theme then artificial rose petals are the best bet. We carry some of the most realistic looking silk rose petals on the market today and don't forget to ask about our bulk pricing when ordering a case at a time. We know when it comes to weddings that every penny counts and you don't have to sacrifice quality for price. To view our selection of silk wedding flowers click here.
