Silk or Paper Flowers
It's a virtual certainty that bouquets and centerpieces made from paper or silk flowers will feature zero pesticide contaminants. Many of today's silk flowers are nearly indistinguishable from the real thing with the naked eye. Best of all, they can grace your dining room buffet for many years to come. Paper flowers, although they require extra time on the front end, allow the craft-inclined bride the opportunity to custom-select every color and nuance down to the last leaf and petal. Brides interested in exploring this option can experiment with tissue paper and floral wire, or they can get instructions for elegant paper bouquets from craft books and Web sites.
