Love those Silk Flowers?!

We've all heard of Diane James, NDI and scores of other wonderful faux floral designers, but one that is new to me (courtesy of Verdigrisvie.blogspot.com) is Sophie Dahy Designs. Yes, I know the words 'silk flowers' conjures up images of older ladies and an overabundance of chintz to some people, or dust to people like myself, but these designs are making me rethink my whole dust phobia issue. What immediately strikes me about Jeanne Hyatt's and Linda Raulston's designs are their unique vases. They have found some beautiful crystal, china and whimsical vases that make their arrangements truly stand out. They have also specialized in finding "classic blue and white china containers."
As their website states, "our search for the perfect container soon became a passion. We think we've been very successful in finding wonderful containers for our faux flowers, since our clients love the various types of pottery and other containers we provide." I love this holiday roses design using a William Yeoward inspired cut crystal vase. The roses are so creamy, I just want to rub the petals to feel the soft texture! How perfect would this be on a sideboard or foyer table with tons of mercury glass and other colored crystal? Lucious! Visit Sophie Dahy's website and enjoy!
