My Share: Silk Plants Direct – Bonsai

I found these great Bonsai that are from a company I have never heard from called Silk Plants Direct. I have always loved bonsai but know I don’t have a green thumb so investing in a couple wouldn’t do any good. They are expensive and I would probably kill them. None the less, I really wanted bonsai trees for our living room.

I am an old timer (at least to electronics and the internet) but I happened to find these and fell in love and knew I wanted them. But I had never heard of the company so did a little research and found positive responses to the quality of the product and service so my temptation finally got the better of me and I took a chance.

Let me tell you – I am so glad I did. When the package arrived it was well packed to ensure no damage came to the product during shipment. Thats important, who wants to open an anticipated package and find it damaged or crushed because of poor packing right? Here is a picture of them just mere moments after I opened still shrink wrapped so the pots didn’t get damaged.

Bonus: I can’t kill them – Ha!  All parts of the bonsai trees are very realistic from the roots exposed at the top of the pot (like real bonsai are) to the wooden trunk of the tree and the leaves are thick and very realistic.  Here are the three bonsai trees in a closeup – notice the great detail!

These are a great deal as well, in a three item purchase they came out to just $30.00 and some change each. Considering a real bonsai this size starts at $125.00 for just one and that’s just to start so this is an awesome deal.

While browsing their website I found several other great products like cactus, long twigs and branches that twist and sparkle, shrubs, trees, and small and large varieties of so many unique specialty plants. I noticed these and got them because of my desire to have bonsai but the other selections have made me want other items too – many I didn’t even know were available to buy. But Silk Plants Direct have such a variety you can go and spend a couple hours easily browsing their great products.

Shop Silk Plants Direct today and find a great present for that special someone that was not blessed with a green thumb or buy for yourself – I won’t tell!

Easter Bouquet Centerpiece With Hanging Eggs

10923279_925787530811510_6366958619494436770_nWhat an inspirational idea for a table display for Easter. Here long stems with small flowers were placed in a vase and colored eggs were hung from the branches. Very simple but very elegant. Makes maximum impact – think of using long twigs found in your yard over the winter and spray paint all one color or a multitude of colors. Ribbons holding the eggs could be of variation of colors to provide a different look. High vibrant colored eggs could be used with pastel colored flowers/branches or vice-versa.
