Faux, fake, or artificial flowers or whatever you like to call them, have become very popular in recent years & for several reasons; The exceptional quality of some faux flowers, The sustainability versus imported fresh flowers, The lower cost if large floral installations if they can be hired
The exceptional quality of luxury fake flowers is such that you would find it hard to tell the difference between the quality fakes and the real thing. Many large floral installations which are labelled as fresh may well contain some fake flowers too! This is because fresh flowers, flown in from all over the world, are stored in temperature controlled containers to put off flowering until the few required hours of a wedding or special celebration. If they dont bloom, last minute substitutes have to be found, usually faux flowers fill the holes.
Fresh flowers are undisputedly the most beautiful, no doubt about it!..but the carbon footprint & sustainability to bring them to your table maybe a lot higher than you think before they are left to die. Faux flowers are shipped in once, they will be used at least 10 to 20 times, meaning we can keep our hire costs low. Finally, when we deem them passed their ‘use by date’, they are donated to local charity shops to help decorate their windows.
By creating floral installations, such as wedding arches, hanging wreaths or large table centres, candelabra dressings, etc we use the basic structure & can add in extra colours, fresh greenery, & floral scents to suit your occasion. You can also see what you will have on the day, knowing that when we add in the fresh foliage etc to make it look slightly wild & it will look even better!
