Even if you have little kids, you still probably want to enjoy a beautified home. This at times can seem to be counter productive as children, especially very young kids, have a way of distracting from the natural flow of completing d?cor projects. One way to solve the problem is to get them involved rather than trying to keep them away. If you are doing something that a younger person cannot do, give them a similar project that they are old enough for. These experiences are ones kids (and you) will remember?and you are giving your children an opportunity to take pride in their endeavors. There are thousands and thousands of ideas with home decor that work with small children. Another tip: decorative items such as tall trees and hanging baskets are difficult for small hands to get to or damage.
Creating a Centerpiece
Centerpieces are a great way to decorate with silk flowers. Centerpieces are usually placed on the dining room table, coffee table, or other prominent area in your home. Hopefully your centerpiece will not only draw attention, it will incorporate elements already in place in your house. If you arrange your centerpiece carefully, you can create a piece that is well-balanced and causes your audience to take in the whole creation. For instance, a flower centerpiece that has an X. pattern or direction causes viewers to their eyes from the top left to the bottom right and vice versa. Some arrangements do this by having long strands crossing in the middle. By using a weaving pattern with flowers or perhaps even a small tabletop shrubbery, you can create an arch-like pattern. If you would like to find out more about centerpiece designs, there are many pictures available on the internet; home decoration magazines also have great ideas.
Silk Grass Arrangements
As you decorate your home, one consideration you may not yet have made is to use silk grass arrangements. This decoration tool will work especially well for you if you live on a ranch, in the West, or in a desert-like environment. Grass arrangements are typically smaller than plants and can be compared to silk flower arrangements. Silk grass goes easily around plants and trees, living or artificial. Silk grass works very well with water fountains or in windowsills. A benefit to silk grass is that they provide a fresh change from more ordinary flower arrangements. Silk grass is just one more way to add new elements and designs to your beautiful home.
Storing your Silk Wreaths
A simple but festive way to prepare your home for holidays and special occasions is to hang a wreath on your door. Since there are so many fun and pretty wreaths for so many occasions, those who try to keep their home decorated for the seasons may be frustrated with where to keep all of their wreaths! That does not need to be the case, as there are several options for storing your wreaths. In fact, one of the best ways to store your wreaths is to simply reuse them. Reusing wreaths simply means placing different flower commendations on the same wreath with the changing season. You will need to sure that the base is a good sturdy one. Simply tape or lightly glue your decorative pieces to the base. This technique allows you to cut down on storage space without throwing away or wrecking your wreaths. All of your decorative pieces can be kept in a single box, and often you can keep them organized in the pattern or design you like for them. On the other hand, if you enjoy having several different wreaths, we recommend getting either plastic containers (there are even some built specifically for wreaths) or a simple shelving system so that none of the wreaths get crushed or damaged.
