Silk Roses - Silk rose wreaths and bouquets
Silk roses are perfect for an elegant arrangement, a beautiful bridal bouquet, a special hat or simply pinned to your favorite dress as a fashion accessory. Though exquisite, real roses quickly die, while silk roses retain their beauty for years.
One of the wonderful things about silk roses is that they don't wilt or bruise, and they won't stain your linens and clothing as fresh roses will. Much less expensive than real roses, silk roses are an economical choice. If taken care of properly, they will last for years. Should dust settle on them, simply give them a cleaning , and they will look as good as the day you bought them.
Silk roses are available in hundreds of colors, making it easy to match them to your décor, event or ensemble. And unlike real roses, the color you want is available all year around in the quantities you want. But of all the beautiful colors silk roses come in, the most popular by far are classic red silk roses. They are as versatile and elegant as the celebrated "little black dress." Speaking of which, even the oldest and plainest black dress is new again with the addition of an exquisite red rose.
A single silk rose is lovely, but a bunch of them make an attractive statement. Arrange your roses in a decorative vase for a lush effect. If you choose a clear glass vase, simply add a few glass pebbles to cover the ends of the flowers, and no one will ever know they are not real. Want to dress up a drab wall? A silk roses wreath is traditional and beautiful at the same time. A wreath of lovely silk roses ads color and texture to any room.
Caring for your silk roses is easy. It is a good rule of thumb to keep them out of direct sunlight that may fade their color. Should they get dusty, you can clean them by simply placing about one cup of table salt in a large paper grocery bag. Then gently place your silk arrangement inside the paper bag, roll the top down a couple of times and then shake the bag. The salt works as an abrasive and will lightly scrub the dust from the petals and leaves. Shake the arrangement a bit as you take it out of the paper bag to remove all the salt. If the salt is not too sullied, you can save the salt in the paper bag for future use.
