My favourite subject

I could talk for hours about what makes our artificial flowers so realistic and the best quality available, so unless you have a while, don’t get me started! - instead read about it below in your own time where I explain why our Amaranthine Blooms are the perfect substitute for fresh flowers!
As we prepare for the arrival of our new season stock, we are in the process of meeting with our wholesale customers to showcase our new range. In every meeting we are asked to explain what sets our artificial flowers apart from the rest which is I LOVE to do as it gives me a great opportunity to explain how we are able to achieve such lifelike blooms. I thought that you might like to know what we tell them!......
 
High quality - Hand made luxury
Each of our blooms is hand made. This means that each petal, stem and leaf is unique from the next and this creates a natural and realistic look. For example we pay attention to the veining and curve of our rose petals, the two-part formation of our hydrangea petals and the precise colour of all our blooms - all designed to accurately reflect nature.
 
Attention to detail - reflect nature as closely as possible
We focus on the shape, size, texture, colour and formation of the petals, leaves, stems, thorns, buds and stigma of our flowers. We are particularly proud of the hand-painted colours of our petals, creating a depth and individually that is unrivalled and we consider each bloom a work of art in its own right.
 
Our flowers are not silk flowers!
Contemporary artificial flowers are not made out of silks this delicate material frays easily and is hard to shape. Instead we choose the best quality materials for the individual bloom selecting fabric that is tightly woven with specialist treatments to resist fraying, and specialist foams that can be sculpted. We continue this attention to detail through to the plastics used in the stems which have a soft and natural touch and malleable wires so that blooms can be styled as desired.
 
A great example is our white mophead hydrangea

Happy Birthday Mrs Wong

It gave me great pleasure today to create this beautiful gift for the birthday of a very special lady who turned 90 last week. The lady in question is the Grannie of an old friend, making it an extra special occasion.
 
For the gift we suggested a pretty bouquet of pink hydrangeas and roses, which despite being elegantly simple has a wide range of different shades within the individual blooms making it a perfect gift. We arranged for this to be hand-delivered including the vase and a card so that Grannie just has to pop it on her shelf an admire it.
 
We think that this makes a great gift for a friend’s birthday or especially the birth of a baby girl – what new mother has time to be caring for all those fresh flowers that get delivered and much better to give a gift that will still look as beautiful as the day it arrived when baby turns two, just like baby!
 
We are busy designing its blue equivalent for all those bouncing baby boys and are inspired to create a new section of our website with lots more gift ideas which we will advertise on our homepage shortly – watch this space for more details…….
