Hi, I'm Katie - the owner & designer
at Heart and Sola Creations
I use wood flowers to create items & arrangements for people looking to add unique, personal items to their lives. I love showing that home decor, gifts, and weddings don’t have to be boring or generic.
When I’m not busy working on flowers & crafts, you can find me scrolling TikTok, watching a cooking competition show (and wishing I could cook), or catching up on the latest true crime documentary.
What are wood flowers?
The wood flowers I use are made from the root of a plant called aeschynomene aspera. But I don’t know of anyone that walks around calling it that. Instead, we call it sola.
These flowers have a cork or foam feel to them, they are completely natural and weigh next to nothing. You might notice knots or veins in the flower petals — that’s actually from the root of the plant itself. And just like real flowers, the knots and veins add a level of authenticity to your bouquet and decor.
How Are They Made?
I don’t personally make the flowers, but I do customize each individual one to fit your wedding day vision. In their natural state, they are a white or cream color, and they can stay that way if you prefer. I can also dye them any color or combination of colors that you would like. From there, I arrange them to fit your wedding day preferences.
Why use wood flowers for your home decor?
The wood used to make these flowers grows so quickly that it is considered a renewable resource & they journey to the US on cargo ships, not planes.
With hundreds of flower options available all year round, seasons don’t affect which flowers you can have for your home.
Sola wood flowers have the ability to take on nearly any color. This means they can fit into any color palette to perfectly match your home.
Good for Allergies
Sola wood flowers are not scented and don’t shed pollen, which are common sources of allergens. I also use faux greenery & fillers almost exclusively.
Leave your items out year-round, or pack them away & bring them back out each year. They are easy to take care of and can last forever.
While the initial cost may be comparable to using real flowers, you’ll be able to re-use your flowers for years.
