What a beautiful color coordination this is ! It's a centerpiece with a banner of "Merry Christmas". The green color of leaves and red color of ribbon creates a beautiful decoration for this season. The photo is from Better Homes and Gardens. Although many floral designers use fake flowers for Christmas decorations, this arrangement uses real fresh flowers. It really looks good.
The merit of using artificial flowers such as silk flowers is you can use them repeatedly year after year. However fake flowers are not alive and therefore they do not show us any reaction no matter whether we supply water or not. When it comes to real flowers, if we do not supply sufficient water, they cannot stay fresh. On top of that they have a good fragrance unlike silk flowers. However fresh flowers cannot be used repeatedly.
As mentioned above, both fresh flowers and silk flowers do have advantages and also disadvantages. Floral designers need to make a right choice depending upon the nature of event and also the place of display. California Flower Art Academy
currently focuses on teaching fresh flower arrangement. If you are interested in learning Fresh Flower Arrangement, make a choice of your favorite course (or seminar) from the Wide Range of Programs
