The wood flowers I use to make wedding decor and bouquets 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 my creations.
For as long as you take care of them! Keeping them out of direct sunlight and in a dry room is best.
Damp basements or storage units are not great for wood flowers. They are, after all, an organic material, so mold can grow if they get wet or are exposed to high levels of humidity.
They can, though I don’t recommend it!
I suggest keeping them away from direct sunlight, and bringing them inside if it starts raining.
Extended direct sunlight can cause the colors to lighten. If they get wet, mold can grow & then you’d need to dispose of the flowers.
Absolutely! Order early – depending on my schedule with weddings, events, etc. there may be a wait.
For the most part, yes! If a listing says “Only one available!” then the one in the photos is the exact item you will be receiving.
If the listing does not say that, then your item will be made when you order.
To ensure a high level of quality and product, I reserve the right to make appropriate substitutions when necessary. The integrity of the original item will always be maintained, and flowers, greenery, etc. of equivalent value will be used.
