Artificial Flowers Galore
Calling all DIY brides! In fact, calling anyone who is looking to liven up their house with some gorgeous flowering blooms, guaranteed to last until the end of not the day, not the week, but most likely the end of the decade. You need to check out Cinta Home Deco a hidden and almost unknown gem tucked away in Ipswich City Square.

This quaint little shop is filled to the brim with foam roses, real touch lilies, perfect peonies and walls of hanging greener and, is therefore perfect, for brides interested in jumping on the artificial flower trend. In fact I learnt about the gorgeous shop when my bestie got married and I carried a stunning artificial bouquet down the isle as one of her bridesmaids. It was a beautiful little purple pose filled with a variety of dark purple roses, which I might add, is not a colour commonly found in the garden. I loved the little bouquet so much that I visited the store myself a week or two after my man dropped down on one knee to search for some flowers to match my sparkling new ring. After wandering the flora filled isle for a good hour I settled on an array of blooms for my own bridal bouquets as well as some green ivy to trail up the center of my rustic table setting.
Both my friend and I have creativity streaming through our blood, but if you don't think you have the skills to build your own ever-lasting arrangement, then don't worry because the lovely assistants will happily design and create the bouquet for you. In fact they even had a number of lovely buttonholes and corsages sitting in a display window waiting for some lucky bride to stumble in and grab a bargain. And a bargain they will get! I have spoken to a number of other brides who would recommend Cinta, not just because of their amazing assortment of buds and petals but also because unlike the rest of the wedding industry and products and services offered are very well priced. And we all know that planning a wedding can be extremely costly so thank goodness Brisbane Brides have a cheap alternative on their doorsteps, if only more people knew about the wonderful Cinta Home Deco.
Do remember, however that it is not only brides who are allowed to enjoy artificial bouquets. There is no reason why thrifty renters or homeowners can't grab a quick bunch of gorgeous blooms to brighten up a vase or a number of vases in their home.
These gorgeous flowers will accompany me down the isle in August!
