Silk Floral Arrangement
Professional Silk Floral Designs
The craft of silk flower design has evolved into an art form. It combines color, texture, and composition to create artificial floral arrangements that elevate the heart and home. Today, silk floral designs are as varied as the spaces in which they are enjoyed. Whether your idea of the perfect silk floral arrangement is a sleek, contemporary vase of white calla lilies, or a country style bouquet of silk daisies, bursting with color and joy, Petals features artificial floral arrangements to satisfy every stylistic palette.
Petals specializes in premium quality artificial flowers, plants, trees, and decorative room fragrance. Each silk floral arrangement is created by our professional floral designers and each is assembled by hand. As with fresh-cut flowers, no two silk floral designs are exactly alike.

A Brief History of Artificial Florals
People have been recreating flowers with a myriad of materials for centuries. The earliest silk flowers were crafted in ancient China. Cloth flowers began to catch on in the United States in the 1800s, but early efforts yielded artificial flowers that bore little resemblance to their live counterparts. Artificial flowers took a giant leap forward in the early 1970s with the use of plastics and high-quality synthetic fibers. These materials enabled manufacturers to create silk floral designs with greater botanical accuracy than ever before. Though the commonly accepted term is "silk flowers", it is something of a misnomer, as modern flowers are rarely made of silk.
Silk flowers have continued to get better and better. From the delicate veins running through the leaves to the way the stem seamlessly meets blossom, today's silk flowers are so realistic, they have to be touched to be believed. The flowers and foliage of each silk floral arrangement from Petals are crafted from high-tech fibers, heat pressed into molds based on live flowers. Each petal, stem, and leaf is created individually. The colors and details of the flowers are hand painted, and the flowers assembled by hand.
Benefits of Decoration with Silk Flowers
Many of the artificial floral arrangements available from Petals are set in high-quality glass vases that are filled with our special acrylic water. This crystal-clear acrylic is hardened in the vase and makes the flowers look just like fresh-cut stems standing in cool water.
Another advantage of artificial floral arrangements is that they are virtually maintenance free. Fresh-cut flowers look beautiful, but only for a few days. A silk floral arrangement from Petals can look great for months and years to come and is virtually maintenance free (an occasional dusting and spritz with silk flower cleaner will do the trick). A silk floral arrangement also makes a thoughtful, lasting gift, and many arrangements are available in a premium gift box.
Popular Silk Floral Arrangement Styles
There is a huge variety of silk floral designs available, and Petals makes browsing them fun and easy. You can sort by price, size, colors, and season. And large, full-color pictures and detailed close-ups enable you to fully envision how a particular arrangement will look in your home. Here are some popular silk floral arrangement types:
Silk Daisies: Daisies are part of the asteraceae family of flowering plants. The word aster comes from the Greek word for "star". The daisy, with its star-shaped flower, is a representative member of the family. Silk daisies are very versatile. Silk daisies of the gerbera variety come in bright colors and are popular in contemporary arrangements. Silk daisies also look great mixed with black eyed susans, gypsophilia, freesia, and many other flowers.
Silk Orchids are the perfect fusion of high color and high fashion. Native to subtropical and tropical areas, orchids have a distinct, exotic look. Silk orchid accents, centerpieces, and focal arrangements give orchid lovers a variety of sizes and shapes to choose from.
Silk Roses are a classic favorite and are available in a wide selection of colors. Passionate dark reds, fresh whites, and charming yellows are a few of the types you'll find on Petals. Silk roses are also available in large bouquets, mixed arrangements, and single stems.
