Frequently Asked Questions

We have complied a list of the most common questions we are asked about our products, including ordering and care information. See these questions, and answers, below.

How do I care for my silk flowers?

With the proper care, your custom botanicals can last for many seasons. Your Daniel Rose arrangement was designed for indoor use. Place in locations that are cool, dry and out of direct sunlight. High humidity and direct sunlight can fade colors and permanently damage you arrangement. When not in use, store your arrangement in its original box.

Occasional cleaning is recommended. To clean your arrangement, dust gently or use your hair dryer on a "no-heat" setting. Silk flower cleaner is also available at your local craft store. Silk flower cleaner will remove dust and restore colors with a simple spray application.

Your arrangements may contain fruits, berries and other items that are hazardous to small children. Arrangements should not be watered. Arrangement pieces should not be eaten. In addition, arrangement pieces should not be placed near an open flame because they are not flame retardant. Daniel Rose, and any of its affiliates, will not be responsible or liable for any and all personal or property damages or claims resulting from any improper use, handling, and/or cleaning of its products.

Are your flowers real?

Our Silk Arrangements are not real. Our products are faithful reproductions of real flowers, fruits, etc. Each item is carefully hand-crafted to be botanically correct which lends to subtle variations between flowers.

Exceptions to this standard are our "stylized" items that are designed for a specific look (e.g. beaded/glazed) or have a different finish.
