What are Sola Wood Flowers?
These are artificial flowers that remain beautiful forever. Each flower is hand made and hand painted/dyed, no two look alike. Sola Wood Flowers are made mainly from a plant called Cassava which is a woody shrub (also sometimes called Yuca, not to be confused with Yucca). The Cassava root is a major source of carbohydrate and can be dried to a powder to create tapioca. I am a sola wood flower florist!
How long do they last?
Since these are artificial they will last a lifetime
How do I store the arrangements if I put them away? (ie. if you are getting married and don't need them out just yet)
You can store them in a box as long as you have punched holes in it. The flowers need air circulation or they are at risk of growing mould.
Can I put it outside?
Yes and no. If you put the arrangement outside you will need to put a UV sealant on the flowers in order to preserve the colour. Also, since they are wood they can be damaged in severe weather. It is best to take them inside during the harsher seasons. If they get wet you will need to allow them to dry for 48 hours in a well ventilated area.
What are the benefits of using sola wood flowers?
- they last a lifetime
- they don't cause allergies to those allergic to real flowers
- they don't wilt so you don't have to worry about them keeping their shape all day for your wedding
- they are cheaper then getting real flowers
Do they give off a scent?
No, but you can add oil to make them smell however you please! Just be sure to put them UNDER the petals, so the oil doesn't cause any discolouration in the dye
How early do I need to book my wedding order?
IDEALLY at least 6-9 months before the wedding. This gives us time to align our schedule around other weddings (and orders in general) and so you can lock in our current prices. However, we may be able to fulfill your order with less time if we are available. Please reach out to us to discuss! sola wood flowers canada
