Artificial flowers and their many uses


Artificial Fabulous flowers Collection

The most exquisite high-quality artificial and silk flower arrangements and creations are delivered to your door and arranged by Cape Town's best florist, Fabulous Flowers.

Yes, take a look again. Is that bunch of lovely blue hydrangeas artfully arranged in the clear vase in water real? Look at those agapanthuses; how breathtaking and perfect. Ah, lilacs, my favourite flowers. Look how fresh they are. Surprise... they're silk! Hey, wait a minute... it's the middle of August! How can they be so fresh?

Artificial flowers have come a long way from the days of hideous heavy petaled plastic daisies and roses that our grandmothers used to have in their homes to breathtaking silk orchids and forsythia, freesia and magnolias. The silk flower market is growing, with many silk flower manufacturers paying attention to detail and growing acceptance of silk flowers.

Today, many brides choose silk (faux) flowers instead of real ones for their bouquets. Aside from the fact that it's almost impossible to tell the difference between silk flowers and real flowers, a bride getting married in Autumn can now carry lovely cabbage roses and spring flowers in her bouquet - even though cabbage roses bloom in the spring. Using silk flowers, a bride can have any flower she wants in a bouquet any time of year. Also, she has a bouquet that she can keep forever without the expense and trouble of having her fresh bouquet preserved. The price of a silk bouquet comes in much under that price, making it, in most cases, a better buy for the money. Of course, all your wedding flower needs, from hair pieces to boutonnieres to centrepieces and arrangements for the church, can be made from silk flowers by our Cape Town florists.

Silk flowers and plants are perfect for use in the home too. There are hundreds of different types of silk plants to choose from. Do you yearn to have an English ivy cascading over your mantle, but you have a cat? As a cat owner, you know that English ivy is poisonous to your cat, so you don't dare. Do you have a dark corner that you want to spruce up with variegated hostas? Even though they are shade-loving, hostas need some natural light. Are you tired of watering and babying your real plants only to find them unhappy with anything you do? Silk plants are the perfect answer.

You can purchase lovely wreaths and swags in your home in silk. Along with pre-made silk flower arrangements, you can also purchase some silk flowers "by the stem," which allows you to use your creativity to make your arrangements.

High-quality silk arrangements created with exceptional care and exquisite floral style are now available online from your favourite Cape Town florist, Fabulous Flowers.

These arrangements last a lifetime and are easy to maintain and look after. For more information, please email us at or shop our current collection or our entire range of Fabulous Flowers and Gifts

Create a space of beauty

Whether you are planning a special occasion or have a hobby of collecting silk flowers, you have taste, and for that, you must be applauded. Silk (artificial) flowers make the most beautiful arrangement, and you need not worry about the flowers dying on you. They can add character to any room and brighten a table with various colours. The fabric last, and the only cleaning you will probably have to do is wipe the dust off the leaves.

These flowers make beautiful bouquets and vase arrangements, and with your creativity, you can send them to a special person in your life or even say thank you to someone that has just highlighted your day with a simple smile or a few words of inspiration. This is also a great way to keep your home full of flowers. Think about it, you won't have to water flowers again, or if you have always had the habit of forgetting to water flowers and worrying about the poor things dying of thirst.

You will probably get questions like, "Where did you get these beautiful flowers?" and "They have been here so long. What are you feeding them that keeps their colour and freshness?" It will be up to you to give the secret away, or you could leave them in suspense about how beauty finds its way into your home and stays there for as long as you want them there.

If you see a certain silk flower you love, notice it so you can look for it when planning a special event. Many places online also offer a good selection of silk vase creations, so check online too.

Artificial plants and stems have become increasingly popular recently, offering a cost-effective and low-maintenance alternative to natural flowers. Not only are they perfect for home décor, but they are also widely used in events, weddings, and commercial settings.
