Tips for Seasonal D?cor
There are a few ideas you may want to think about as you decorate for each season of the year. Choose a few spaces that you will decorate seasonally, and use year-round decorations for other areas in the house. This way, clean-up needs and clutter are both cut down. You can have a particular shelf with seasonal knickknacks, or a calendar display with thematic elements. Changing the clothing of a stuffed animal to reflect the seasons is a nice, safe way to decorate if you have little ones at home. To cut down on storage, consider revamping and reusing your crafts. Many crafts can be exchanged or reused for different seasons. One of the best examples is exchanging your wreath from one season to another by removing the flowers and replacing them with new flowers appropriate for that season.
Decorating for the Winter Season
Like each other season, winter can be a beautiful season to decorate for. When designing with winter d?cor, remember the climate changes that are taking place and how those climate changes are affecting plants and greenery. Some of the most popular items to use in winter decorations are evergreens, branches (sometimes frosted), and that special selection of wintry seasonal flowers. Of course, decorations tied to the Christmas season play a major role in winter decorations. You can use many of these items, with small changes or embellishments, throughout the winter season.
Designing Wedding Flowers
Weddings are one of the most beautiful and exciting events in anyone?s lifetime. Every wedding can do with some flower decorations to heighten the attractiveness of the ceremony and/or celebrations. Flowers can be used not only as decorations but as part of the ensemble for many people in the wedding. For women, there are corsages; men display boutonnieres, and of course, the bride carries her wedding bouquet. In addition, flowers and other greenery can be used in a variety of places as decorations. It may seem like an overwhelming job to coordinate all of this, so break up your task into smaller steps. Color, type of flower, and arrangement design are the three most important elements to consider with flowers (and it often helps to make those decisions in that order). The color is usually a very simple decision as the bride will already be choosing the color or colors for the wedding. As for the flower choice, roses are the standard choice for weddings, but you should check with the bride or mother of bride to get recommendations. The most difficult decision is often with how the flowers are arranged, because there are so many choices. The best way is often to stick to two or three ?looks? and apply them to all the decorations you use. With a little planning and practice, anyone can do a great job with wedding flowers!
The tulip is a big favorite among the categories of silk flowers. Tulips? shape and petals make them very distinguishable. Tulips are a great flower to use for almost any decorative need. Tulips are unique in that they are not stuck in a certain classification in terms of festivities or a particular time of year. Another immensely popular flower, the rose, is one type of flower that has a lot of stereotypical meanings attached, limiting it in ways that the tulip is not limited. Many plants or flower arrangements are so ?busy? or intricate that they need a good amount of empty space around them to look good. Tulips, however, are elegantly simple and do not need such accommodations to look attractive. Tulips are wonderful for flower arrangements: they look lovely by themselves, and they add color and charm, without being overbearing, in more diverse arrangements.
