My son was married this past summer， and my sweet soon-to-be daughter-in-law askedme if I could make a silk floral arrangement for a large cement urn that was to be thefocal point of the ceremony. (Other than her， of course.)
Choosing the right flowers is the most important part of making a gorgeous weddingfloral arrangement. The bridesmaid’s dresses were pale pinkpillow covers solid， so I chose flowers thesame color.french linen cushion covers
When making a silk floral arrangement you want to find flowers that look as real as possible.They may cost a little more， but watch for sales and you will save money for sure! Be sure to hit Michael's with a coupon!
Choosing different size flowers will make the arrangement elegant and airy. I also lookfor some very dainty flowers that I use as fillers. These think branches with minimal flowers were a good choice for the base of the arrangement.
I purchased a large piece of floral foam and cut the foam to fit snuggly inside of a plasticpot. When arranging flowers， you want to start with the tallest flowers first. I like to useflorals that resemble flowering tree branches for the tall flowers. Place the first flowerstem directly in the center of the pot， and add more if needed. I also hot glue all aroundthe stems for added support.
I then added the next size flowers. Look at the flower on the right， see how it droopssoftly？ This flower is a Wisteria. It adds a delicate softness to the arrangement.
Next， I added the blush pink roses， being careful to space them out evenly.
Then it was time to add the smaller flowers. I placed them lower than the roses to helphide some of the stems.
The last step was to add the very dainty flowers. These are what I call “fillers”. Theyare used to fill in the gaps. Just be careful not to over do it.
The little “filler” flowers make such a difference!
Isn’t this beautiful! And guess what？ Everyone thought the flowers were real!
It was a beautiful day! This Momma was happy， and I just smiled when peoplecommented on the stunning roses. (I’m not telling them that they weresilk!)
Driving a sewing machine is very similar to driving an automobile. When you are driving a car you have a gas pedal that regulates how fast your car goes. The foot pedal on your BERNINA sewing machine is like the gas pedal on your automobile. The more you press it down, the faster you are sewing. The difference is the path you are traveling. In a car, the road speeds underneath you as your tires grab the pavement. With a sewing machine, your path of fabric speeds underneath the needle as the feed dogs grab the cloth.

As we get ready for winter weather, we?start thinking about cozy warm bedding for ourselves and our family. But you may be asking yourself, what’s a duvet? Do I need a duvet cover?
