Floor Standing Orchid Display

Floor standing orchid display

I remember walking into a factory where my uncle once worked and noted that the place was brightened up by many artificial flowers and plants.  Now as one of the leading suppliers of artificial flowers in the UK, I use that memory to help me provide artificial flowers and plants to places such as factories.

As a supplier of Artificial Flowers in the UK I almost feel duty bound to cheer up some of the dreariest work places in the country. Some factories and many basement offices can become almost like prisons with their lack of colour and these artificial flowers and plants are a must. This Floor Standing Orchid Display is just one example.

Places of work, especially more industrial places need artificial flowers and plants that are easy to manage and maintain. However, unlike the flowers I recall from my uncle’s factory that this need not mean poor quality flowers. Demmerys has become known for superior quality artificial flowers in the UK. Our range of commercial artificial flowers and plants all match the same standards of quality as our luxury collections.

When it comes to artificial flowers and plants for the workplace, Demmerys insists on quality. The flowers we provide must be robust but they must still retain their elegance. This particular arrangement is one of the best examples of commercial artificial flowers in the UK that we provide. My Uncle’s factory would have loved something like this floor standing orchid display.

Only the very best materials are used in the production of all the artificial flowers and plants from Demmerys. Our commercial plants get the same treatment as any other. We choose the best silks and the strongest, most flexible wires from the best suppliers to make our plants.  We also consider the use of our artificial flowers across the UK and our commercial plants need added thought. In this case the plant needs to be tall, strong and noticeable.

The tall white planter selected for this stunning example has been chosen specifically for commercial use. It seems pointless to not make extra effort for commercial artificial flowers and plants and thus Demmerys make more effort.  If I was to walk into an office or even a factory reception I would sense the quality of this amazing display. I would know it is far better than the plastic flowers I saw years ago and would know instantly that it had been made by one of the best producers of artificial flowers in the UK.

Luxury Artificial Flowers

Artificial Pink Phalaenopsis Orchids

I remember going to a firm of solicitors some years ago for the reading of a will. In the office was one of the most wonderful artificial floral centrepieces made from luxury artificial flowers In have ever seen.  The piece I saw inspired me so much that I have attempted to copy it and add some of my personal style.

It was fairly obvious that the room we sat in was used often thus luxury artificial flowers really worked a treat. Any place that has a flow of people will also always welcome inviting and cheerful artificial floral centrepieces. The flowers had to be bright, had to look real and in some cases due to a lack of light, look alive.

I have always loved making larger displays of luxury artificial flowers and when I am asked to make an artificial floral centrepiece, I jump for joy. To make something like this is where my real passion flows and, for me, using orchids makes it even more special. I love orchids; especially copious amounts of them that I know people will stop and stare at. For this reason, when I produce artificial floral centrepieces I ensure a touch more quality is put into the arrangement.

Luxury artificial flowers from Demmerys start out like all our flowers. To produce the best artificial floral centrepieces is no different to producing the best artificial flowers. It all begins with selecting the very best materials. Over the years, I have been able to source better and better materials to make better and better flowers. This is all part of the Demmerys promise of good quality.

Quality is the Demmerys trademark and our luxury artificial flowers show it more prominently that all our flowers. Artificial floral centrepieces show it even more clearly and our expert flower makers know this. Because of the special attention pieces such as this receive, these flowers become an investment not just another bunch of fake flowers.

Made to last a lifetime, the quality of the materials used in our artificial floral centrepieces ensures they remain looking fresh… always! With minimal maintenance required the luxury artificial flowers ensures people will always smile when they see the arrangement. We also know, and this is the bit I like, they will be fooled into thinking they are real. Nothing beats knowing someone has been fooled by my flowers.

Tall Black Planter with Yellow Bromeliad

Tall Artificial Flower Arrangement

Yellow and black have always gone well together and this tall flower arrangement proves the point.   Yellow BromeliadTall Black Planter with Bromeliad are among the brightest yellow flowers on earth and these yellow artificial flowers are very bright. It is the brightness of the yellow and the high gloss of the square black planter than really makes me go wild for this arrangement.

The arrangement is not one that perhaps takes pride of place on a dining or boardroom table because it is tall. (well, I suppose everyone has their taste so maybe you want to) However, because this is a tall flower arrangement that has some wonderful sharp lines it has its uses. As a corner plant or as something that acts almost like a signpost in a passage makes this a handy plant to own.

The first thing that anyone will notice is that this amazing arrangement is very lifelike.  You will also notice the absolute quality and attention to detail contained in the entire piece. At Demmerys we like to think of the flower arrangements we produce as investments not just flowers and we don’t cut quality anywhere.

This impressive arrangement starts out very much like every other Demmerys product, with high quality materials. Every element of this display is hand chosen for its quality and of course the right colours. Yes, we do from time to time experiment with new materials or improved materials but from experience we know what works. Having selected the very best materials that can turn man made materials into lifelike flowers the real work begins.

Our talented flower makers get to work. They have an idea in mind, sometimes what comes out is not always what the first idea was, and begin to weave their craft. Taking the time to craft every flower, every petal and every tiny feature each yellow artificial flower takes shape. Following a blueprint from nature only when the flower looks perfect does it become part of the arrangmement.

The great thing about using the highest quality materials is that the life of each arrangement is extended further. In this case, the materials are UV protected to ensure they do not fade. It is this long life, increased further still through simple maintenance, that creates the investment value in the piece.  From experience, I know this amazing arrangement will bring many years of happiness and smiles are what I always call the reward.

Artificial White Casablanca Lily Arrangement

Artificial White Lily arrangement Black Fishbowl

Of any flower arrangements, this display of luxury artificial flowers is perhaps the most luxurious.  The faux flowers and artificial lilies make this one of the finest acquisitions anyone could make. This is not your ordinary artificial flower arrangement… this is something remarkable.

I love the fishbowl vase that creates the perfect setting for this impressive display. The black bowl is in total contrast to the artificial flower arrangement that sits above. Faux flowers and lifelike artificial lilies with hydrangeas and Monstera leaves look stunning. The whole arrangement looks lush and remarkably lifelike.

This Artificial White Casablanca Lily Arrangement in a black fishbowl vase started out with quality in mind at the outset.  Carefully chosen, high quality materials were laid out and imagination was let loose.  Keeping close to the blueprint nature herself provided, each plant and leaf was handcrafted. The artificial lilies and faux flowers came to life in the hands of master flower makers. Is it any wonder that this masterpiece is what it is?

It takes years of practice to produce an artificial flower arrangement like this. Hours of practice, working and reworking each piece to ensure it matches the real thing. The artificial lilies in this piece are far from fake; they fool everyone and do so so well. The flow of this outstanding arrangement turns these luxury artificial flowers into an investment piece.

One cannot not fall in love with this absolute gem of a flower arrangement. That is where things change. This is not just an artificial flower arrangement; it is a work of art, an investment piece. Hours of time have gone into making it. Imagination flowed like blood to create the powerful display of lilies so real they blow your mind.

Yes, this comes close to the top of my list of favourite displays. This Artificial White Casablanca Lily Arrangement fits in anywhere. The arrangement is a timeless classic, much like Bogart movie itself. As a display piece in an entrance hall or taking pride of place on a dining or boardroom table it works. It doesn’t just work, the faux flowers are vibrant and alive, designed to generate smiles.

The truth is that this display is not real, but who is to know?  Because artificial lilies and other plants are used, this arrangement will last a lifetime. Loving care and attention, with simple maintenance, will guarantee countless days of smiles and happiness are delivered.  This arrangement is a winner on many levels.

 

Tropical Flower Display with Venus Fly Trap

Tropical Flower Display with Venus Fly Trap

Tropical flowers bring life and happiness to any environment but because they are tropical they have a habit of not last long or requiring some fairly intensive maintenance. Artificial tropical flowers on the other hand last forever and need little maintenance.

Sadly, too many people have an image in their mind of indoor artificial plants looking plasticky and like something out of a cheap take-way food joint. Artificial flowers and plants are tarred with a pretty bad brush and many people take a lot of convincing to think otherwise. This Tropical Flower Display with Venus Fly Trap helps change the minds of many people.Tropical Flower Display with Venus Fly Trap

This amazing arrangement that contains a variety of flowers, foliage and plants with some totally tropical orange artificial flowers is, in my own opinion, mind blowing, taking artificial plants and flowers to a completely new level.  With perfectly green, almost real phalaenopsis orchids, exquisite pin cushion proteas and other flowers and of course a Venus flytrap just for good measure, this tropical display will stand out wherever it is placed.

Each lifelike specimen in this gorgeous arrangement is made from the highest quality materials and a passionate team of creative people produces petals and the stems, leaves, by hand. This Tropical Flower Display with Venus Fly Trap stands in an ornate, gloss black pot, again carefully selected from the best manufacturers to cast away any preconceived ideas about artificial tropical flowers looking plastic and lifeless.

This arrangement will last a lifetime with some simple and regular maintenance.  This masterpiece of flower arrangement becomes an investment and the initial joy felt when first received will remain forever and be repeated in others throughout the long life of this exquisite display.

One can almost hear the sound of the waves lapping on the shoreline that seem to accompany this arrangement, the warm tropical sun shines through with the orange artificial flowers and happiness seems to have been captured and then slowly released with every glance of this work of art. This flower arrangement goes so far beyond just a bunch of flowers and knowing that the joy of this display will last more than a lifetime is all part of the package. Investments often take time to release their returns and the returns soon reach a plateau, with a Tropical Flower Display with Venus Fly Trap the returns on investment begin when it is purchased and no plateau is ever reached this truly is the gift that keeps on giving.

Oriental Green Orchid with Red Hydrangea

Green Phalaenopsis & Hydrangea in Black Trough

When it comes to artificial flowers, there is nothing more special than silk orchids, and my Oriental Green Orchid with Red Hydrangea is one of the arrangements that is beyond special.  The combination of lime and dark greens finished off with a luxurious Red Hydrangea in a black container looks simply stunning, and this artificial orchid display doesn’t even need any special reason to be given to a loved one.oriental green orchid red hydrangea

Silk Orchids always look so real and yet they have a certain magic that makes them look more than real. It is hard to explain, but even when one touches the petals of the flowers it takes more than a moment to realise that the plant is not real but artificial. Being fooled into believing something is real when it is not is part of the enjoyment.

But what makes our artificial orchid display so special?

Red artificial flowers and silk orchids can look fake but when only the very best materials are selected for use in their manufacture the results show and something real is found.  Sourcing the components that make up an artificial orchid arrangement from not one but many suppliers is the key to making the very best finished products.  Because I select the very best materials one of our artificial orchid displays or even just a single silk orchid becomes an investment, artificial flowers always last but ours last and with regular maintenance and cleaning they never lose their luster.

The quality materials along with creative passion make for luxury yet affordable artificial flower displays and arrangements. It is not worth settling for second best when investing in something like artificial flowers, second best will look artificial and will age whereas paying just a little bit more gets you something that improves over years. Giving an artificial orchid arrangement to someone, especially a display with a luxurious touch from a red hydrangea becomes something precious that over time will become a talking point.

Just like Mother Nature casts her spell on real flowers, that sadly always fade away, so my silk flowers are made using the same blueprint to bring a smile to the face of anyone for many years to come. Who knows in time to come your artificial orchid arrangement may be passed down from generation to generation.

Flowers In Your Workplace

artificial flowers corporate to hire Orchids

Does your office need some colour? Are you spending a fortune on real flowers? Do you want to save money without sacrificing the beauty of real flowers?
Every office needs a little colour, from an open plan office where each desk becomes a home from home to the executive boardroom and of course the reception area.

Many companies spend a fortune on fresh flowers that over the course of the week drop their leaves, begin to wilt and lose their brilliance making Friday a little less cheerful than it ought to be.

Artificial flowers partificial flowers corporate to hire Orchidsrovide the solution to adding that spot of colour in the work place. Whether it is just to brighten up your own desk and workspace or to cheer up reception or add some class to the boardroom for that all important deal clenching meeting, flowers do the trick and silk flowers do it better.

Silk flowers have come on in leaps and bounds in the last 20 years, no longer do the flowers look nothing like any flower that has ever grown or ever will grow but instead they look real or even better than real. The flowers look so real in fact that people will often sniff them and then blush when they realise they are fake, that is a sign that people will like them. From small and ornamental arrangements to arrangements that make a statement and add to the décor of the office, silk flowers of all sizes, shapes and colours really bring some magic to the workplace.

Silk flowers, although it sounds strange, are more environmentally friendly than many fresh cut flowers and for a company the carbon footprint is something that is take seriously. Growing flowers all year round to give you roses in December and January requires either growing the flowers in energy consuming greenhouses that drink water and eat electricity or gas to heat the area or require freighting from the other side of the world on a cargo jet that burns fuel to get the flowers to you fresh whilst the flowers travel through climate controlled storage. Real flowers may seem to be green but in fact they are not as green as you might imagine.

Silk flowers on the other had are made from materials that are often produced in green factories using renewable materials and require no massive power plants to heat or cool to get a small amount produced. Silk flowers can play a part in lowering the carbon footprint of a company.

As well as the environmental impact of the flowers silk flowers require little, if any maintenance. Topping the vases up with fresh water, picking of the dead leaves

pink orchids

and separating the living flowers for the dead takes time each and every day. With silk flowers there is none of this, you can even place silk flowers wherever you desire as there is no need for them to be placed in sunshine or in shade.

With real flowers the cost of the flowers varies by season and heaven forbid if you want roses in the first two weeks of January, you either can’t have or you just pay top dollar and more to get the flowers you want. Silk flowers have no season, no matter what flower you want at any time of year you can have it in abundance. You can have varying sizes of bloom, if you need something delicate with small blooms you can have, if need something larger than average to make a statement in a forgotten corner you can have it. You can, although you probably wouldn’t want it, have almost any colour you want if you want yellow lavender by all means ask.

Silk flowers offer flexibility but their low cost of maintenance also makes them an attractive proposition for a business where time is money. Professionally made silk flower arrangements will add class to an office or work space. The flowers can be made to order to work with a room or even for an occasion and with silk flowers you can have some fun and use unusual items as containers.

The real benefit of silk flowers is that they last, with real flowers they need to be replaced each week with silk they don’t. The cost saving is tremendous and instead of having new flowers each week it may well be that a company chooses to have new flowers once a month or just for the change of season.

Artificial flowers in the work place have another, almost forgotten benefit. Allergy sufferers, it is amazing how many people are allergic to flower pollen and as much as they love flowers they cannot go near them. Silk flowers do not have this problem and they look just as real, some say even better than real.

As a new year approaches and budgets have to be set has your company looked at its use of flowers? In the more challenging economic times budgets have become tight and of course one now needs to consider the environmental impact of each business decision. So is it now not time to consider replacing your weekly arrangements of fresh flowers with an equally stunning and cheerful arrangement of silk and artificial blooms. You will be amazed at the quality of the flowers and the cost saving will be considerable. Your offices and work spaces will still look bright and cheerful and of course you will be able to have a secret snigger anyone tries to sniff to see if the flowers are real.

 

Flowers in the Rain

Artificial White Orchids in rose gold champagne cooler

Have you ever looked out of the window on a grey and gloomy rainy day and just felt a little miserable? We all love sunshine but we know we need the rain, but rain is often just that bit more gloomy than sunshine and we don’t all like it as much.

But what can you do about it? The puddles form, people feel a little sadder inside for some reason and people even get a little more hot tempered. Rainy days, we need them but we don’t like them. On a rainy day all the colour and happiness from the word seems to be switched off, it’s wet outside and we do our best to avoid it and we merely wish and pray for the rain to go and the sunshine to return.

There is a little something though that cawhite phalaenopsis orchids in rose gold champagne coolern bring back some colour to the day, something small, something simple and something anyone can have and many do have. There is a something that has a permanent sense and feeling of summer about it, full of colour and always happy. That little something may evoke a special memory or may just be the patch of colour you need of a gloomy, wet and even chilly rainy day.

What is that something? That something may well be sat right in front of you, sat on your desk, on your windowsill or on your kitchen counter. As you watch and count the raindrops trickle down the window and as you draw a smiley face in the condensation just to bring a smile to your face you look down and see a patch of sunshine, never ending sunshine full of colour and your face lights up.

Again I ask “what it that something?”

It is the arrangement of artificial or silk flowers, or that silk orchid that you were given or you bought. Silk and artificial flowers only ever know happiness and sunshine, in a simple arrangement the silk roses, geraniums, lilacs, daisies or daffodils capture and retain that moment when Spring and Summer collide. Even the smallest of arrangements, strategically placed bring a small smile to your face as the rain tap, tap, taps on the roof outside. Trapped in your room, your space, while the world is grey and sad you have a little piece of sunshine.

Artificial flowers are the all year round provider of sunshine and smiles. They never fade and they will always remind you of happy and fun things. Single silk flowers, pretending to grow in a pot remind you that you are alive and despite the rain you know how to smile and can smile. The artificial flowers in a basket bring a smile to your face “Mummy, look what I go you” you hear your child say and your face and your whole world now feels a happier, warmer and not so gloomy place.

 

Everlasting Love

Artificial Hydrangea

Flowers are commonly associated with love. Valentine’s Day, birthdays, anniversaries and weddings, even a funeral flowers are given out of love and as a sign of respect. But flowers have a problem, whilst they are beautiful and they have meaning they do eventually wilt and die leaving nothing but a memory.

Silk flowers, artificial flowers, fake flowers, faux flowers call them what you like do not have the problem that all cut flowers suffer from. Artificial flowers never die, they may fade a little after a few years and they may gather a little dust, but wilt they will not and die they will not.

Modern artificial flowers look more than real, the latest manufacturing techniques, improved materials and a general greater understanding of how to make fake look real have all played their role. So how cRed Hydrangea Arrangementsan you take advantage of this?

The secret lies in everlasting love and being a little creative with what you say and exactly what you give. Artificial flowers look so real that it is difficult if not impossible to tell them apart from the real thing and this is perhaps your chance to win the heart of someone special.

Mixing real flowers with faux flowers is possible. A dozen red roses with 11 being real and 1 being a better than real artificial flower, looks like any normal romantic bouquet of flowers. There is one difference though, one flower will last a great deal longer than 11 others and herein lies the secret everlasting love.

To win the heart of a loved one the single artificial flower is the key to everlasting love and this combined with the message sent makes the chance of everlasting love pretty much 100%. You cannot say “I will love you until the flowers die”, the cut flowers are already dead or at least are dying. The artificial flower has never been alive and thus is and will remain dead. So don’t mentions the word “die” in your message as so many do. Instead use the language of flowers and cleverly say “I will love you until the last petal falls”. Because the one flower is artificial the petals on it will never fall and thus your message will be real and last forever.

Artificial flowers really do look real, many people will only realise a silk rose is silk when they take a very close look and realise there is no scent. From not even a very far distance an artificial flower looks very, very real and to win eternal love you can use this fact.

Is it cheating? Who knows, you never mentioned an artificial flower, and by inserting just one flower that will never drop its petals you have proven you will do anything to make love last forever. So no you haven’t cheated, you have just done your best to win the heart of the one you love.

Artificial flowers are very much the new real flowers – so give them and make someone happy.

 

The Not So Green Poinsettia

Artificial Poinsettias

Poinsettia Plants look stunning and with their brilliant red flowers and striking green leaves they really do fit in with a traditional Christmas theme in home or office.
But Poinsettia plants are not the greenest of plants and although Poinsettias look stunning those who know and those who care understand that Poinsettia farming is an energy sapping operation.

Even without considering the green aspects of a fresh versus artificial Poinsettia the silk flower has a number of positives and pretty much wins hands down. A silk Poinsettia is as good as maintenance free, no dead leaves, no need to water and no making sure it sits in the right place with not too much and not too little sunlight. Truly a fresh potted Poinsettia is the Goldilocks of all house plants.

A silk or artificial Poinsettia looks real, and it will deceive many, and will add colour to wherever it sits in a room, colour that will never fade.

And of course a Silk Poinsettia is very much a more environmentally friendly plant. It is hard to believe that a plant that so many have given as giftArtificial Poinsettiass or simply purchased because they look so stunning is actually farmed in a not so green manner.

Poinsettias are farmed in huge greenhouses beginning with live cuttings that are then warmed and watered to almost force the growth in time for the Christmas season, yes Poinsettias are considered to have a season. This process is energy and water intensive that is not very green. Then one needs to consider the transport of the plants, often over some distance, and the carbon footprint that leaves.

Poinsettias are pretty but the modern farming and its associated carbon footprint takes away some of the red charm. Many Poinsettia plants have to be destroyed each season as well and many are not composted but simply thrown into landfills. Landfills sites do not act as a compost and thus any value from the disposed of plant is not given back to Mother Nature.

The silk Poinsettia has none of this, nearly all the materials used in the manufacture of silk and artificial flowers are produced in green factories using renewable resources. The silk flower from an environmental aspect makes absolute sense but then one needs to think just a little wider and broader. A silk Poinsettia lasts pretty much foever and can thus be used time and time again.

Silk flowers make decorating your home or work space easy, green and affordable. In our books and Silk Poinsettia is a winner and we encourage you to give one a try and then look at the amazement on the faces of your friends as they realise it is not real.

How to Make a Bridal Bouquet with Artificial Flowers.

Kate And Pete’s Wedding Flowers

Artificial Wedding Flowers

Bridal bouquets are the centre of attention for any wedding, but the biggest challenge is to create a unique bouquet which goes perfectly with the wedding theme and the bride’s dress.

One of the best ways to create an amazing bridal bouquet is by opting for artificial flowers that are currently trending.

 

To create a bridal bouquet that looks just like a professionally designed flower arrangement, here is what you need to do:

1. Colour palette

Choosing the colour scheme of your artificial flower wedding bouquet which compliments the bridal gown is a crucial first step. If the bridal gown is traditionally white, then the bouquet could be made of pastel flowers to make an artificial orchid arrangement. Whereas silk flower arrangements are apt for bright coloured gowns.

2. Bouquet size and material

The other thing to remember while creating your artificial flower bouquet is the size. Once you have a size estimate, start picking out flowers along with natural looking fillers that will help your artificial flower wedding arrangement look more beautiful.

3. Holder

The holder for your artificial wedding flowers bouquet should be shaped like a hollow torch, and it can be made using empty tissue rolls. The size of the holder depends on the number of flowers you want in your bouquet.

4. Placing flowers

To create the bouquet, place the biggest flower in the middle of the holder. You can then place the remaining flowers in circular layout to fill the remaining space. To hold the flowers in their place, add a piece of Styrofoam at the base of the holder before beginning.

 

5. Accessorising

Once you are happy with the way your artificial flowers wedding bouquet looks, accessorising is the next part. You can wrap the holder either with ribbons or lace to give it a regal look. You can also use strings of crystals or pearls around the flowers.

If you require a professional bespoke artificial wedding bouquet then please contact us at Artificial Flowers on 0121 270 6597 or email admin@demmerys.com and let us make all your wedding dreams come true.

10 Tips for Faking it with Artificial Flowers

new18-e1485280574540

While nothing can quite compare to the scent of real flowers, artificial flowers win over the real variation when it comes to elements like appearance, maintenance, longevity and value for money.

They require little or no care, they’re not going to lose their bloom after a few days, and they’re always in season. What’s more is many artificial flowers look so realistic that it’s hard to tell them apart from the natural ones.

However, if you want to create artificial flower displays that are going to fool even the harshest critic, there are some rules to follow.

Listen up as we’re about to reveal our top 10 tips for faking it with artificial flowers that will keep people guessing whether they’re real or not.

  1. Do your research

Before you invest money in artificial flowers, you need to do a little research so that you know exactly what the real version looks like.

Go a step further if necessary and learn how the flowers grow, whether they’re normally displayed with their leaves and how florists arrange a particular flower.

If you can’t get to a florist, research online.

Once you’ve got the knowledge you need, you’ll be able to tell how close your chosen artificial flower arrangement is to the real variety.

  1. Always invest in the best quality artificial flowers you can afford

The best artificial flowers don’t come cheap, but it you’re trying to arrange a realistic display you’ll need to buy good quality flowers that look like the real thing.

Our arrangements are made using the best possible materials and workmanship so you don’t have to worry about quality when you shop with us.

  1. Choose realistic colours for your artificial flowers

Ok, we admit it, you do see neon blue flowers in supermarkets, but if you’re trying to fake it with artificial flowers you need to keep your displays as natural looking as possible.

If you want to add interest and intrigue, by all means try using black roses or some equally off-the-wall colourway.

After all, it’s all down to personal taste and we encourage our customers to tell us exactly what they want and let us use our interior design expertise to craft the most realistic looking arrangement.

  1. Hide any extra thick stems

Most artificial blooms are individually wired with each wire being enclosed within plastic to create one large, thick stem. While this does mean that you get lots of blooms together, it’s not how they grow in nature.

Make sure to hide the stem in an opaque vase or container to keep the display looking natural.

  1. Divide up your bunches

You don’t have to display your flowers in a bunch. Use wire cutters to snip the stems apart and use them in separate displays.

  1. Limit your colours or create a monochromatic display

One way to create natural looking floral displays is to choose a colour scheme made up of no more than three colours.

If you prefer, a monochromatic display of artificial flowers also works well and can look very striking with flowers of one colour and/or type arranged in a glass vase.

It’s a simple but very effective way to display your artificial blooms.

  1. Avoid using flowers with added details

Fake water droplets and the addition of baby’s breath on the stems can give the game away.

Get bad quality flowers with these added details and it will scream that your arrangement is fake!

  1. Don’t forget to dust

Artificial Red Hydrangea in Black VaseA layer of dust will quickly tell everyone that your arrangement is fake.

Keep your blooms dust-free and looking like new.

  1. Add some water

Adding water to a clear vase will really have people guessing whether your arrangement is real or not.

  1. Bolster up real flower arrangements with artificial flowers

Adding artificial flowers to a real flower display is a great way to replace flowers that are out of season or prohibitively expensive, especially if you’re creating a display for a special event.

Follow our top 10 tips for faking it with artificial flowers and you’ll have a display that really will fool everyone!

Revealed! How To Stop Artificial Flowers Fading

flowers

Artificial White Fresh Touch Orchids in a Copper Glass Bottle VaseOne of the core benefits of artificial flowers is their longevity. Artificial flowers can maintain the beautiful appearance and rich colour of fresh flowers for months and even years.

That said; they do need some care and attention to look stay looking fresh and vibrant.

Apart from removing dust etc, if artificial flower arrangements are displayed indoors on a window sill or in direct view of sunlight, on grave sites or elsewhere outdoors, they may be subject to fading from exposure to the elements.

Luckily, there are some key steps you can take to prevent colour fading and ensure your artificial flowers continue to hold their beauty for many years.

We’ve compiled a quick guide of 3 important steps you can take to maintain the appearance of your artificial flower arrangements.

How to Keep Your Artificial Flowers from Fading

  1. Provide Adequate Shelter

Take specific action to minimise direct exposure of your artificial flowers to the elements. Try to enforce some level of shade and shelter by placing them under an archway, canopy or sill.

If this isn’t possible, consider providing shelter in the form of a plastic container. There are some beautiful sealed plastic containers and cases available for housing artificial flower displays which won’t deter from the beauty of your arrangement.

If all else fails, simply move your arrangements indoors or away from windows when difficult weather conditions or sustained periods of sunshine are expected to ensure protection when the threat of fading and damage is most prominent..

  1. Use Fabric Protection Spray

Depending on the type of artificial flowers that you have, you may be able to apply a fabric protection spray to ensure UV resistance and prevent fading.

You should speak to your artificial flowers supplier to discover whether a fabric protection spray can be used on the flowers that you have purchased and which specific type of spray they recommend.

Top Tip! Lay your artificial flowers down on some sheets of old newspaper in a well ventilated area.

Apply the UV resistant spray in sweeping motions and leave to dry for approximately 10 minutes before you place your artificial flowers back in the path of direct sunlight or weather exposure.

The spray effectively adds an extra layer of durability to the materials used in your artificial flowers.

  1. Regular Cleaning and Dusting

Key to preventing your artificial flower displays from fading is to ensure regular dusting and cleaning. We know it might sound like a bore but build-ups of dust and dirt can cause premature fading of the materials used in your flowers.

Top Tip! Regularly dust your artificial flowers with a feather duster or use a hairdryer or can of compressed air to dislodge deeply embedded dust and dirt that lies in hard to reach places.

For a more intensive clean, wipe down your artificial flowers and plants with a clean cloth that has been dipped in soapy water.

Gently clean the leaves and stems of your flower arrangement before leaving them to air dry.

We’ve just given you the secrets to stop artificial flowers fading and it’s now up to you to put them into practice.

If you really want to keep your arrangement(s) for as long as possible, it’s essential that you take this care and maintenance routine seriously.

We’d love to know if the tips above are working for you!

Artificial Flowers – Keeping Our Eyes on the Delivery Method of the Future

Drone-delivery

For decades, popular media has given viewers visual glimpses of what our future world could potentially look like. Yes, through silver and small screens the world over, individuals have been treated to scenes jam-packed with images of what could be:

    • In 1997’s cult classic The 5th Element, Bruce Willis and Milla Jovovich glided by skyscrapers in revolutionary flying cars;
    • Controversial human cloning was the status quo in award-winning TV hit Orphan Black; and most notably,
    • In Back to the Future, when Marty McFly’s time travelling DeLorean docked in 2015 the skies above were filled with drones soaring and touring.

But TV and movie producers of the past few years didn’t really hit the nail on the head.

Present day Earth isn’t exactly how they thought it would be: flying cars are by no means common, so you won’t be commuting to the office in one anytime soon; you also won’t be running into your genetic double as it’s highly illegal to clone humans; and drones don’t quite fill the skies – not just yet anyway!

Although, if Amazon’s Prime Air service is anything to go by, the days of drone delivery services are coming sooner than we think.

The UK’s premier online shopping giant is making huge leaps into the future and aim to have your delivery to your door in just thirty minutes.

And, here at Artificial Flowers, we are hoping to jump on that innovative bandwagon.  

Should we stick to snail mail?

Right now we’re doing the things the old-fashioned way – snail mail as they call it! Currently, when you decide on the kind of artificial floral arrangement you would love, you can drop me a line and I’ll get to work creating it.

We then dispatch it and have it to your home or business within three working days. But is this the best we can do?

Right now, yes! But we feel like three days could be improved upon, especially if drone delivery becomes mainstream. What if you could have your order in just thirty minutes? Well, if Amazon can do it, we can surely do it too!

Luxury delivered through the air by drones is exactly the kind of future we want to be a part of: innovative designs by Artificial Flowers, radical and rapid delivery services and, as a nod to the past, a good old-fashioned satisfied customer.

Artificial Flowers: You Decide, We Provide

We carefully design bespoke artificial floral arrangements for you. Whether you’re tying the knot, bidding a fond farewell to your loved one, or you just fancy treating yourself to something beautiful, we have just what you need.

Here at Artificial Flowers, our designs may not be ‘real’ but our commitment to your satisfaction definitely is.

Need a hanging basket? Hang on and we’ll rustle something gorgeous up.

Fancy giving the gift of long lasting flowers this festive season? Ho-ho-hold on and we’ll design the perfect gift.

Need advice about kitting out your new home with some artificial arrangements? My extensive background in interior design and floristry makes me the perfect candidate to advise you.

Tell me the colour palette you’re working with, and any other interior info, and I’ll use my expertise to weave some tones and hues to suit you.

If you need to talk about an order drop me a line on admin@demmerys.com or call 0121 270 6597; or if you’re around the West Midlands, drop in to us in Walsall, where we are keeping our eyes firmly fixed on the future!

How to Clean Artificial Flowers

flowers_0594-340×340

Artificial Orchids in Gold VaseOne of the main advantages that artificial flowers have over fresh flowers is their longevity, but one must know how to clean artificial flowers to extend the life of their arrangements.

To ensure that your artificial flower arrangement lasts for many years, you’ll need to dedicate a small amount of time to some cleaning and maintenance every so often.

Over time, artificial flowers can gather dust, especially if they’re positioned near windows or outside. Cleaning your artificial flowers will ensure that they maintain their brilliant vibrant colour and remain just as lifelike as an arrangement of fresh flowers.

Don’t worry, artificial flowers don’t need anywhere near as much maintenance as fresh flowers require – there’s no need for any watering, pruning or fertilising.

Here’s what you need to know…

How to Remove Dust and Dirt from Artificial Flowers

  1. Dust off with a feather duster

Sometimes all it can take is a little touch from a feather duster to wipe away dust from your arrangement. If the build-up of dirt or dust isn’t too thick, a feather duster will quickly remove it and leave it looking great again.

  1. Spray with compressed air

If the build-up of dirt or dust on your silk flowers is a little more stubborn, you’ll need to use a can of compressed air to try and dislodge it.

You’ll find cans of compressed air at your nearest office supply store or computer store.

Be careful though – the powerful blasts of air may dislodge any delicate glued parts of your arrangement so this may not be the best option if your artificial flowers are especially fragile.

Free your Artificial Flowers of Dirt & Grime

  1. Shake in a bag of coarse salt

Where a heavy level of dirt and grime has built up on the petals or stems of your artificial flowers, coarse salt can help to aid effective removal.

Place your flowers into a plastic zip bag along with a couple of spoons of table salt. Shake the bag gently for one minute before removing your flowers and dusting off any remaining salt.

The grains of table salt work as mild abrasives, helping to quickly loosen any heavily embedded dirt and grime. It works like magic!

  1. Spray with a vinegar and water mixture

In the event that the table salt doesn’t do the trick, prepare a mixture of equal parts of distilled vinegar and water, shake vigorously and add to a spray bottle.

Spray the flowers very, very lightly with this mixture and leave to air dry. It should work to dissolve the build-up of dirt.

ALWAYS do a patch test first to ensure that the colours of your artificial flowers don’t run.

  1. Cleanse with soap and warm water

Cleansing with soap and water can also do the trick. However, check with your artificial flower supplier to see whether this method is suitable for your particular type of artificial flowers as it’s not Artificial Pink White Orchids in Silver Jagged Edge vaserecommended for all.

If you get the go-ahead from your supplier, fill a basin with lukewarm water and add a couple of drops of liquid dish soap.

Gently swish your flowers in the water and rub slightly to remove dirt and grime. Blot them dry with a towel – rubbing the flowers may loosen their parts so blotting is important.

Whether you’re looking to clean your artificial orchid flower arrangement or it’s your artificial wedding flowers that need attention, we hope that this guide helps you to restore your beautiful flowers to their former glory!

Professionally Designed Artificial Flower Arrangements

Artificial Flower Arrangements

Are you looking for a way to instantly brighten up a space in your home? If so, your beautiful vases no longer have to serve as a standalone ornament as they’re going to help enhance the space that’s looking bland and boring.
And because fresh flowers never last and constantly need to be replaced, artificial flowers are always the best choice when it comes to bringing your empty vases to life.

Finding Natural, Lifelike Artificial Flower Arrangements

Many people assume that artificial flower arrangements will look fake and deter from a space rather than add to it.
And while cheap artificial flowers from a bad supplier can look fake, you’re sure to get an arrangement of flowers that’s totally lifelike when you choose a specialist provider that’s gifted when it comes to the design and manufacture of artificial flowers.

We’ve got our design and manufacture process perfected to ensure that we produce the most realistic and top quality artificial flower arrangements that’s available on the market. Using only the finest materials, our flowers are expertly crafted to ensure every single detail is as close to the real thing as possible.

Creating Artificial Flower Arrangements

• When we use a pot or anything other than glass, we use a foam substance that grips the stems as they dry.

• We then use artificial moss to cover the bottom of the stems in order to ensure that the foam substance cannot be seen, creating the perfect, realistic finishing touch.

• On clear gold fish type bowls, we use a resin that sets hard giving the impression that, from the outside, your flowers are nicely set in water.

Artificial Floral Arrangements: The Possibilities are Endless

An arrangement of artificial flowers is not limited to certain types of flowers. In fact, impressive artificial flower bouquets and arrangements can be created using low maintenance yet high quality “silk” versions of your favourite fresh flowers.

By browsing our online store, you will find beautiful arrangements of artificial orchids, lilies, hellebores, yellow and pink English roses, purple tulips, lavender, meadow flowers, and a wide range of tropical flowers and wild flowers.
So whether you’re looking for orchids for your bathroom, tulips for the hallway or red roses for your sitting room, the possibilities that artificial flowers allow for are endless.

Artificial Flowers Make the Perfect Table Centre Piece

Artificial flowers also make for an ideal table centrepiece so if you’re looking for a low-maintenance and cost-effective decorative talking point for your kitchen table or for your upcoming wedding or corporate function, we can create some really striking arrangements.

By adding some lavender, twigs, meadow flowers and/or potpourri, we can make the realistic features of a large artificial floral centrepiece really come to life.

Consider a brightly coloured arrangement of wild flowers, tulips, wisteria, eustoma, chins, stocks and leaves in a glass vase set in resin for a natural water effect. The end result will be a beautiful table centrepiece and a sure talking point in any dining room, living room, reception area or foyer.

Professionally Designed Artificial Flower Arrangements

Professionally designed artificial flowers are your long-lasting, low maintenance option for revitalising a dreary-looking space in your home. Browse our online store to explore just some of the possibilities of artificial flower arrangements or alternatively please contact us to create a bespoke arrangement for you.

Welcome to ArtificialFlowers.co.uk

At Work

Artificial Flowers

Say “goodbye” to wilted wisterias and drooping daffodils and say “hello” to our new silk flowers, as well as our brand new website demmerys.com.

Things have been happening over here at Artificial Flowers. Good things. Excellent things in fact. Over the last couple of years we have expanded and new faces have joined – adding a new range of diversity and skills to the company.

So we thought it was about time we had a revamp, an upgrade as we felt that our expanding team and most importantly, our clients and partners, deserved it.

 

So What’s New?

Well, apart from the very obvious fact that we have a completely new website, which is absolutely beautiful (if I do say so myself) there is also a whole set of new features that will make your experience with us that much better.

We have a range of exciting new options for our customers, from artificial flower arrangements, artificial orchids to trees, shrubs and pretty much everything in between. Our skilled silk artists truly love what they do, and you can certainly see this in the beautiful craftsmanship that flows from our flowers. Each one is unique and tailored to your needs.

Payment options have grown and we now accept PayPal along with MasterCard and VISA, Worldpay if you prefer and we deliver for absolutely free within the UK.

Deliveries can take between three and five working days on most orders, but we make a special effort when it comes to funeral arrangements. We know that clients going through a time like this are grieving and we try to ease the burden somewhat by ensuring next day dispatch, so that the flowers reach their destination well on time.

One of our newest features is the “view in a room” option. This handy addition allows you to upload a picture of your living room, kitchen, lounge, venue space or anywhere else that you intend on placing your artificial flowers.

You can then place your flowers wherever you want them and see exactly what they are going to look like. This allows you to find the best spot to show off your incredible silky flowers in your home or venue.

Once you use this feature, you will know exactly where they should go, without having to spend a penny.

Why artificial flowers?

Flowers play a huge role in our lives. Weddings, funerals and birthdays are all celebrated with beautiful floral decorations. We give our family, friends and partners flowers to make them feel loved, cheer them up when they are sick, to celebrate or simply to let them know that they are on our minds.

There’s no doubt that flowers are absolutely essential. However, when you choose fresh flowers, a few days will pass and they’ll start to wilt, die and more often than not, they’ll start to smell.

Our silk artificial flowers are not just incredibly beautiful, but they are entirely lifelike and they require almost no upkeep. They will keep your room bright and happy, and they will only require a slight dusting every now and then.

There is none of the challenging tasks involved that would come with trying to keep fresh flowers alive for as long as possible. And the best thing? You have something to keep forever to remind you of the loved one who thought you needed them. A great reminder of those that are nearest and dearest to you.

From artificial flower arrangements, artificial orchids, artificial hanging baskets, artificial wedding flowers or artificial funeral tributes – we have something for every occasion and we can 100% guarantee that you won’t be disappointed.

Feel free to browse our extensive online catalogue and call when you are ready. Our skilled and passionate artists are on hand and would absolutely love to give you advice and ideas to help you get the perfect arrangement.

Artificial Flowers Are The Perfect Gift.

Artificial Flowers

Buying gifts is never easy. It is all about striking the perfect balance between something that is unique but assured to impress the recipient. This is why artificial flowers are ideal. With that being said, read on to discover the various reasons why silk flowers make a stunning gift for a loved one.

Of course, a lot of people will buy their friend or partner fresh flowers. However, fresh blooms will die within a week or so, and they require a lot of upkeep. After a mere few days, they will have lost their beauty. This is something you don’t have to worry about with artificial flower bouquets, as they will last for years and years to come.

This makes the present extra special, ensuring they have a beautiful flower arrangement that they can admire long into the future. An artificial flower arrangement is also recommended because flowers offer so much more than merely something beautiful to look at. This is because all flowers carry different meanings, and thus, you can send a special message to the recipient with the flowers you select. For example, a red rose is, of course, the perfect way to say ‘I love you’ while orchids represent ‘delicate beauty’. You can also opt for your loved one’s birth month flower if buying for their birthday. Peonies and daises are the birth month flowers of April, for instance, and chrysanthemums are for November. You also have more options available to you when shopping for artificial flowers online. You are not restricted to what is in

You also have more options available to you when shopping for artificial flowers online. You are not restricted to what is in season, and thus you can always buy the recipient’s favourite flower.

When you take all of the points that have been mentioned into account, it is certainly not difficult to see why artificial flowers are the top choice for a beautiful and special gift for someone you care about.
