Video: Stunning Stems Floral Design

Video Summary written for Pioneer Imports & Wholesale by: Lisa B.

Realistic permanent botanicals can take a great decorative arrangement and make it truly breathtaking. In this video, Vonda LaFever AIFD, PFCI, CFD showcases a few of the most true-to-life wholesale silk flowers available from Pioneer Imports & Wholesale. Watch along as Vonda builds a sample arrangement to demonstrate just how powerful these pieces can be. 

This sample arrangement uses the gorgeous Mallory compote as a base, a vintage-inspired metallic container with a sophisticated look. Vonda prepared this piece prior to the beginning of the video by inserting a block of floral dry foam that will hold everything securely in place. A thin layer of moss helps camouflage the foam for a more natural look.

Vonda begins the demonstration by creating an asymmetrical halo of wholesale seeded eucalyptus and dusty miller. The contrast between these two muted greens creates a strong sense of depth right from the start.

Next, Vonda adds two stems of lovely silk phalaenopsis. She inserts these toward the edge, the shapes dramatically arching over the entire width of the arrangement. 

Silk calla lilies occupy the open space in the middle. These wholesale silk calla lilies are so realistic, even the stems are soft and flexible – just like the real thing. Because the stems are so soft, Vonda suggests making a hole in the floral foam with a harder object to make insertion easier. She used a marker with a similar width. 

A few pops of silk hydrangea round out the composition with a touch of volume. The result is truly impressive, a spectacular centerpiece that makes a huge impression with just a few carefully-selected ingredients. 

You can find all the wholesale silk flowers used in this video available from the Pioneer Imports & Wholesale catalog. These premium selections are perfect for occasions where realism and quality are the top priority. These permanent botanicals look so lifelike, your customers and clients might find themselves touching the petals to see if they’re real.
