Are you looking for fresh ways to use those large, overstated artificial foliage options that seem to be booming in popularity? 

In this quick video, Tom Bowling introduces a fantastic design created by Vonda LaFever AIFD, CFD, PFCI. This tablescape was built using just one artificial philo branch from the It's A Jungle Here collection by Pioneer Imports & Wholesale. 

Tom shows an unadorned branch sample so you can see just how big and substantial Pioneer's philo really is. It provides a fantastic core for tablescape designs like this because it has that strong central spine going down the middle, a great foundation to build on.

To add additional materials like the finished tablescape shown here, Tom suggests simply binding them in place using bind wire or tape wire. Layering product on product creates that stunning presentation for a big visual impact. 

This type of permanent botanical arrangement isn't just great for tablescapes. Tom mentions that you can also hang these on a wall, perhaps to enhance existing sconces. He also suggests using this composition to decorate those central columns that can prove somewhat obtrusive in larger venues. 

But as a tablescape, Tom offers a suggestion to take this design to the next level. He suggests candlelight – that warm glow immediately bringing life to a room.

With such a large arrangement, proportion is an immediate consideration. Tom suggests using a combination of larger and smaller candle votives, rather than settling with the uniform options typically provided by a hotel or venue. The careful attention to proportion and variation can create an especially magnificent finish. 

You can find the permanent botanical supplies used in this video available from the Pioneer Imports & Wholesale catalog – the artificial selloum philo branch, the premium silk English rose, the wholesale silk phalaenopsis, and so much more.
