Jeanne Hyatt and Linda Raulston used to write a monthly article on Tablescapes for a local magazine. When the duo ran out of centerpieces for their tablesettings, they started making their own in Jeanne’s basement. Jeanne found herself spending every spare minute learning the art of silk flower arranging. By the time she became sole owner of Sophie Dahy Designs in January 2010, it had become an absolute passion and huge sense of joy for her.
Aided by her two daughters, Jeanne sources the most beautiful, realistic flowers and gorgeous, interesting vases and containers. Her arrangements look so realistic that the flowers appear to have just been picked from your garden and placed lovingly in a favorite vase. All arrangements are one-of-a-kind, and made with the best silks available.
Although silk flowers are an investment, they will last for years with only an occasional light dusting. In order to freshen your home with the change of seasons, change the colors of your flowers. In Spring and Summer, use soft, fresh, happy colors, while in the Fall and Winter, use rich, deep, warm colors. Of course if you have a vacation home, silk arrangements would enable you always to have flowers upon arrival. Mixing silks with bouquets of real flowers leads people to assume all your flowers are real!
I hope that you will take a look at Jeanne’s website. If you are looking for beautiful silk flowers, you will be thrilled with the quality of Sophie Dahy Designs.
