When you have a lot of flower arrangements on your wedding day, it is important that they look as good as they can. When you have cane available to make the flower arrangements even better, you can give them a better and more lively look. Use cane on any flower arrangement and give support to flowers to keep them from drooping during the ceremony and the reception. With cane to give that support, your flowers will keep looking perky and alive no matter how long the reception runs.
With some types of flowers, it's important to add some structure to the flowers. This is often the case with fresh-cut flowers, but it can also be true of dried flowers. There are so many different colors of cane available that it is possible to closely match the color of the cane to the color of your flowers. Many people choose to use green cane to support the stems of the flowers and give them an added strength and rigidity. With the addition of cane to the stalks, you can rest assured that your flowers will look great all day.
Using cane in your corsages is another great way to keep your flowers looking great. Twisting cane around a flower or two will give some structure to the flowers and allow you to more easily pin them. You can use cane in your floral centerpieces as well as in your smaller floral touches on tables and around candles. No matter where you have flowers, make sure that they always look great with the use of stabilizing cane. Add some color to the flowers or to the stems with brightly colored cane pieces, or blend into the colors that are already there with green and other colors. No matter what color you choose, your flowers will look and perform better with cane.
Our birch bark is available in a choice of sheets or rolls. Birch bark is a very versatile material to use for a host of craft and floral projects. A lovely natural material that can be woven, folded, pinned and glued to make a great variety of craft projects. It is sustainably harvested without permanently damaging trees. Choose natural birch bark to add a little rustic charm to flower arrangements, candleholders, craft projects and seasonal displays. Bring a little nature indoors by making simple picture frames using birch bark and adding touches of other natural decorations such as driftwood, twigs, raffia and miniature pine cones. A plain cylindrical glass tealight holder can be transformed into a beautiful rustic work of art by simply wrapping it in birch bark, cutting out a heart shaped hole to allow the flame to show through. Or just tying a simple raffia bow around the outside of the covered glass. Soak birch bark sheets in warm water to make them easier for shaping. It's very easy to get your floral or candle container to take on the appearance of a natural birch tree trunk by simply wrapping it with a roll of birch bark, and securing with glue. It makes a perfect container for dried flowers, corn and wheat sheaves or midelino, cane strip and feather arrangements. For a really easy country style rustic project, cut birch bark sheets into squares and use them as coasters for country style parties and events.
Lightweight, rot and fire resistant, non-toxic and buoyant. In addition to all these qualities, cork bark is very pleasing to the eye. And is a sustainable, renewable, and environmentally friendly natural resource. Almost all trees have an outer layer of cork bark, but the cork oak (Quercus suber) is the main source of cork for most commercial uses for it, stoppers for wine bottles, cork tile flooring and cork message boards.
