There's nothing quite like an arrangement of fresh flowers to bring beauty, colour and grace to a room. Or is there? The truth is, attractive arrangements of faux flowers - whether silk, dried or preserved - can mimic their fresh counterparts in almost every way, and the advantages are clear. A faux floral arrangement or plant requires no care, is tolerant of fluctuating light and temperature conditions,and lasts indefinitely.
Unlike the plastic, fake looking faux flowers that first came into the marketplace, faux flowers have evolved over the years to become beautiful, life like imitations of the real thing that are often handmade from silk. In this beautifully illustrated guide, floral designer Richard Kollath and writer Ed McCann demonstrate how easy it is to use faux
flowers to add lasting, blooming colour to every room of the house.
With more than 100 simple ideas, as well as tips on designing, constructing and displaying the arrangements, full colour photographs and unique container ideas, 'Faux Flowers' is the perfect guide to creating beautiful arrangements that last.
