A Look Back At The History of Topiaries

TopiaryTopiary is a form of art that comprises of clipping of leaves, branches and even pruning the roots of a tree or shrubs. Some virtuosos of topiary have managed to perfect this art of clipping and pruning by dwarfing the plant.

When asked about the origin and roots of topiary, most of them stay mum. We started to ponder our minds with the curious question; how and where exactly did topiary come from. We searched the hell and back, tuned every stone that we could, and for our curious readers, we have a memoir of the 'topiary', as would have been narrated by one itself if it spoke.

And then there was topiary...

There has been no concrete proof or anyone alive to confirm the fact, but topiary is alleged to date all the way back to the first century C.E. The rumor-mill has it, that topiary was first developed by a friend of Caesar Augustus (an ancient emperor of Rome) called Cneus Matius. Ironically, the term topiary comes from a Latin word topiaries, that means 'a gardener who is an ornamental landscaper'.

However, some historians are biased that it was the Jewish, Syrian Greek and Egyptians who introduced this form of art to the Romans. Hence, the tug of war has continued since centuries, with it ending in a stalemate every time. We can assure you that the Romans were involved in making the art of topiary known globally.

Another set of ardent devotees believe that the Chinese adopted this art form, as is seen in many ancient paintings. This was later borrowed by the Japanese, who took the art form a notch higher. They even came up with their own version of topiary, called Bonsai.

Oh God! You just cannot beat the Asians, can you!

One fact that we do know, is that the Romans had slaves to work for them. These slaves were mostly from Egypt and parts of Syrian Greece. We can give them credit for due diligence and labor to the Egyptian and Greek slaves, but let's not forget that topiary could well be the brain-child of the Romans.

Topiary finds it's way into different regions

Topiary was unknown to the rest of the world for many centuries. It was an art that was limited to the Romans and the Greeks (We know how they got it!). They included topiary in their buildings, castles and even in small open spaces, or gardens. Back in those days, everyone seemed to be smitten by this art. Oh Boy! And they sure did know how to make a topiary come to life. Instead of simple shapes, they started developing complicated topiary shapes like an elephant. (Complicated because all they had were shear boxes and knives.)

For about 500 years, the rich Greek and Romans improved this Greek-o-Roman style and enjoyed the luxury alone. But as the art of topiary became more wide-spread, people eventually got bored with it, and that was the ephemeral end of topiary. Or was it?!

In the 9th century, the French got hold of the techniques and skills, which is due to the close proximity to the Roman Empire. Eventually, a mad Frenchman (That's how he got bullied) Charlemagne, introduced topiary in France.

Inspired by the Italian gardens with flawless arrangements of topiaries, gardens started emerging in mainland Europe. The French made beautiful gardens using topiaries in monasteries. The Spanish took a step further when they made gigantic mazes in their Islamic-Moorish gardens.

By 1600s there was a tremendous shift in trends. Topiary gardens started becoming the key attractions in Europe, with artificial waterfalls, low beds of evergreen shrubs and drinking fountains. Netherland was the first country to include more elaborate water features and lollipop-shaped shrubs in their gardens.

Inspired by Holland and France, the English came up with a style of the topiary garden of their own. They borrowed the perfect geometrical design from the Dutch and a lot more from the French. In the 17th century, to impress King Louis XIV they replaced the low beds of hedges with 1.9 million potted-flowering plants overnight. (So, very English of them, good sire!)

The 18th-century Victorian era saw the boost of these gardens in England. In fact, they even appointed the 'tree-barbers', especially for topiaries. It was in the same century that the gardens became obsolete. Well, topiary still had a long way to go, it's got 9 lives like a cat, it seems. With the Italian Renaissance, topiary found it's way up again. (It's alive! It's alive! *Imitates Victor Frankenstein*)

Commonwealth nations saw an introduction of topiary in their mainland as well, with the English carrying a little of 'their' art wherever they went in the 18th and 19th century. This was soon spread to Japan and China like a wild-fire. Where the Japanese came up with traditional Bonsai.

In the early 19th century, the United States of America had huge plantations and hectares of open spaces. They planted large estate gardens and guess what they included?! Yes, topiary. (You're a good reader!). One stellar example of topiary in America can be seen in Disney World, in Orlando.

The earlier 20th century saw the rising demand for domestic topiary met. The markets in Fulham and Chelsea in London were flourishing with 'ready-made' topiary pieces that were sold in a flash.

BONUS: Topiary -Then and today.

In the initial centuries of its incarnation, topiary was a form of luxury and only the rich and the prosperous could afford it, as you'd see in some old pictures of ancient castles. The first known forms were simple, like a sphere, cone, dwarf-box edges or a column. But considering their mammoth size and the hard days' work that were put into shaping, trimming and pruning it, is simply commendable.

With the recent advancements in technology, topiary is available in the market in every size possible. All you have to do is pick a shape, that's it! You can get your hands on artificial topiaries online. These artificial topiaries are quite a trend these days, being fire & UV retardant, safe for indoor & outdoor use and as real as natural perennial trees. Of course, without the shedding of leaves and with an easy maintenance regime.

It is common for people to use flora to decorate their residences in an attempt to beautify their property. In such situations, natural vegetation is preferred, and artificial foliage is scoffed upon. Artificial foliage gets a bad reputation because it has been claimed that the fakeness of the same can never beat the classiness of natural flora. Well, gone are the days when fake greenery looked fake, now, artificial greenery easily takes on the look of its natural counterpart and gives it a run for its money. The action of looking down on fake greenery comes from a negative knowledge of it, and due to this, people miss out on indeed how wonderful artificial greenery is. So, if knowledge is the issue, this article will be your guiding light.

1.Immortality

One of the most common arguments for artificial greenery is that it never ages with time. It is safe to say that with passing seasons, certain plants and flowers wither away because they cannot stand, by their natural disposition, the situations these seasons bring along. With artificial flora, that is not even a question. Faux outdoor plants survive every season, and there is not a chance of them withering away. Also, we all live busy lives, on some days (or weeks) we forget to water our plants, but you won't need to worry about that if you have artificial flora.

2. Coordination and Favourites

If you are a person who loves the aspect of color coordination and has a special place for nature, you will understand the pain of never having a color-coordinated garden. However, that is only an issue if you plant natural flora. When it comes to artificial foliage, you can coordinate their colors perfectly and not, for a second, worry about the changes in season and flora falling out of coordination.

Artificial foliage is also great if you have favorites when it comes to flora. You don't have to love Lilies only in the summer and have a backup favorite for the winter. You can love Lilies all year round if you have artificial greenery.

3. Economical

Related to the very first point, fake greenery is a lot more affordable than real flora. Due to its very nature, artificial greenery doesn't require rejuvenation or replacement in case of a planting mishap due to the very fact that artificial flora does not need the kind of attention and care that real flora does. In essence, if you like the look of greenery but don't want to invest a lot of time and money on real flora, artificial greenery is the way to go.

4. Does not require a specific area for placement

There is always a certain amount of specifications that come with buying natural flora; it needs to be placed near the sun or away from the sun or that it requires a relaxed environment or a warm environment. These specifications make it incredibly difficult for you to beautify specific locations and places in your residence, therefore, making it difficult for you to make certain areas, like your home gym, look nicer. Having artificial greenery completely rids you of that burden, making it possible for your gazebo and home gym both look great.

5. Safe for allergies

If you are a social person, who likes having people around your house, getting natural flora becomes difficult for certain people are allergic to certain kinds of plants that you might keep in your home. Having artificial greenery reduces the risk of allergies considerably, so, you can be social and still have a beautiful residence.

6. The requirement of little care

Taking care of artificial greenery is far less complicated than taking care of natural flora. Be it a boxwood hedge or a fake green wall, cleaning artificial fauna is incredibly easy. Artificial Greenery requires cleansing only a few times in a month. The cleaning can be done through dusting by using a soft bristle paint brush. For ground in dirt, however, the cleaning can be done by using a soft cloth soaked in warm water. If using warm water, let your plant dry gently so that it does not have a glossy finish.

Faux greenery is a lot easier to maintain and take care of than natural flora, making it a desirable choice and giving it a more significant advantage in the long run.

7. Pet Safe

Imagine going through the pain of finding a pet safe residence, decorating with natural flora and putting in the maximum effort than finding out that some flowers and plants are toxic for your pet. It is a known fact that some favorite plants and flowers, like aloe vera and lilies, are toxic for pets that you might have. Having natural plants will irritate and potentially be lethal for your pet, making you rush to the vet. Acquiring artificial greenery, having pets, is the safest option for they do not, usually, induce allergies in animals.

8. Soil Toxicity and Child Safety

At times, natural flora is not the root cause of a problem, but their accomplices are. Soil toxicity can be a dangerous issue to deal with. A lot of nonlethal plants require soil that is lethal if ingested in large doses. While an adult will not cautiously ingest soil, toddlers and younger children are prone to do so, not knowing better. For the safety of any toddlers or young children present in your house, it is safe to go for faux greenery than to invest in real flora.

Deciding and planning on how to decorate your residence can be excruciating, time-consuming and uneconomical. You must have heard several opinions from several people claiming to know things they do about natural flora through word of mouth or possible personal experience. However, with due evidence and comparisons provided by this article, you should know better and understand how efficient artificial foliage is. In the end, you have to weigh the pros and cons against each other, and when it comes to artificial greenery, there is little in the cons column.

 

The school cafeteria can be intimidating. It might seem like a battleground, with groups after groups of students being led in to forget their deadlines and syllabi for a few minutes and to fuel their bodies for the rest of the day, but the chaos might take mindful eating out of the equation. School cafeterias should be carefree places that encourage good decisions about food and nutrition. Here are some décor hacks that would help you design the school cafeteria of your dreams.

Paint Your Walls With Murals

Murals are attention-grabbing, innovative, and absolutely beautiful- all of which are great qualities for your cafeteria. You can paint murals that depict the school’s beliefs and philosophy- for instance, if your core tenets are inclusivity and diversity, you can portray these qualities in your murals. The students can immensely benefit from viewing these values every day, and it would shape the way they view the world.

Spread positivity with thoughtful quotes

Display introspective, positive quotes on your café walls. The students can learn a lot from successful people, their failures and victories. At a young age, being exposed to the powerful thoughts of achievers in several fields can influence their own thought processes. Provide your students with this gift of learning. The power of reaffirmation is vast- your students will inculcate optimism just by being around these motivational ideas for a few minutes every day.

Encourage participation by involving the students

When you are looking to decorate the cafeteria, look no further than your students. They are little artists, full of potential and enthusiasm. Ask the students to come up with a theme and ideas, let them decide how to decorate their café, and what furniture and fixtures must be used. The teachers can assist them with this. This DIY project will surely get your students hyped up and will encourage creativity.

Use student-grown vegetables in your cooking

The best way to encourage healthy eating practices among the students is by leading them by example. Set up a vegetable patch in your school, and get the students to plant their favorite vegetables and fruits in it, and use it to cook your school lunches. The kids are involved in every step of the way, from planting the seeds, taking care of the plants, to tasting the fresh, home-grown veggies. They learn the importance of safely grown food and are more likely to stay away from junk.

Support the local artists of your community

It is very important to support your local community. There are hoards of talented people in your immediate surroundings, bring them in to transform your cafeteria. Locals know your hometown like none other- they know the cherished charm of the area, what the highlights are and what the attitudes are like. It will add a personal touch to the cafeteria.

Opt for thematic décor

Themed restaurants have been a craze for years now, and there is no reason why your school cafeteria shouldn’t be themed. After all, won’t the students be enticed by a creative, new age café theme? You can include pop culture references, such as a trending movie or character. You can even opt for a forest-based theme.

To complete this décor, choose an artificial boxwood green mat for a grassy effect on the walls. They are versatile, durable, and very effective. Artificial boxwood hedge walls can be installed indoors, providing lush greenery in the cafeteria. Preserved boxwood can last a long time, and can take a beating, so you don’t have to worry about the cost and maintenance.

Pay homage to the iconic aspects of your school

Every school has some iconic elements. It might be a tree, a room or a club, or even an exceptional teacher or principal. The vast space in your cafeteria is the perfect spot to shine the spotlight on these elements and celebrate them. Incorporate these in your design, maybe in the form of text, or maybe a pictorial representation, to cherish all that makes your school special.

Flood your cafeteria with natural light

Sunlight is a mood booster, feeds you with the essential nutrients, and lights up the rooms much better than any artificial light, and it warms you up if you are in a cold area. These benefits are too good to pass on. Utilize this free resource efficiently. Glass windows let the light in, and also offer the students a view of the outside world, for a much-needed break from their academics.

Value sustainability and green practices

Tonnes of food go to waste in school cafeterias every year. The packaging of the food is often made out of plastic, contributing to the increasing waste problem in the world. The food that gets served to the students is also poor in nutrition. Scrap all unhealthy practices in the schools and introduce clean habits. Use eco-friendly materials for the packaging, create awareness about the serious waste problem and encourage the students to get reasonable portion sizes, and to reduce food waste as much as possible.

Decorate the cafeteria according to the months of the year

You can change up the décor every month, or you can incorporate all the months in a single design. For instance, November, the month of Thanksgiving, can stand for the importance of charity and family.

Pro tip- A great idea to involve kids in kindergarten or primary school, is to have them display facts about themselves on the cafeteria wall, making it easier for them to get to know each other.

Introduce greenery and nature

Greenery is refreshing and relaxing. When the students enter the cafeteria full of flowers, plants, and trees, they feel tranquil and at ease. You can adopt a forest theme, complete with green walls, and artificial flowers.

Real plants can become very messy in the cafeteria, so go for artificial greenery arrangements that do not fade. Install fern and hydrangea fern fillers in the cafeteria. You can also use artificial boxwood wreath or artificial boxwood in planters, to complete the green theme.

Conclusion

Learning is not restricted to just the classroom; it extends to all the spots the students spend time in. The school cafeteria should hence be well decorated and classy so that the students can learn and practice good values. Your students must also eat healthy, nutritious food to supply their bodies with the energy that the modern, competitive life demands, so an ideal cafeteria must push them to make wise decisions about food.

10 Decor Ideas for a Party Hall or Banquet Hall

Need a hall ready for a party or a banquet? How do you ensure that the decor is top-notch, and the ambiance is correctly set for all the guests to have the best time possible? Read on to find out about ten decor ideas that can make your hall an instant hit for parties and banquets.

Choose a theme

It’s always a good idea to have a theme for your party or banquet. Choose your theme according to the occasion or the person the party is for. For example, if it’s a wedding party and the bride and groom like the sea, you can choose an underwater theme and select your decor accordingly.

Use good drapery

Cover the walls with drapes, and don’t skimp on the quality. Drapes are the perfect way to set the mood for any party or banquet. Be classy with your choice, and use fabric like silk or velvet, depending on the theme and occasion. A well-draped hall looks much more inviting to guests and gives the place a high-class look. You can get a nice outdoorsy look if you use artificial ivy screens as your drapes.

Let nature in

Make your party hall outdoorsy with a splash of nature – get a florist and adorn the walls, tables, and corners of the room with flowers, wreaths, and potted plants. To avoid the hassle, you can choose artificial plants, but make sure that they are clean and look fresh. Artificial greenery such as faux boxwood wreaths or fake hanging pots is a great way to incorporate nature without going out of the budget.

Vines and moss walls are also an excellent way to include greenery in the decor. If you want to avoid all the maintenance troubles, you can always choose to go with artificial plants or screens. If your party hall includes a yard or outdoor space, you can also go for a fake topiary in the shape of an animal.

Design your lighting creatively

Parties and banquets must be aptly lit, in accordance with the occasion and the theme of the party. Apart from the regular lights, decorative lighting is also a must. Lighting up the hall can be essential to the party as your guests would be dressed up and they would like to show it off to each other. The lighting must be adequate, yet not too bright as you don’t want the guests to have to shield their eyes.

Consider using lanterns, decorative lamps, colored lights and candles to light up individual tables. Another excellent lighting decor is a chandelier, and a grand chandelier in the middle of the hall is a great way to jazz up your decor. Concealed lighting is also a significant trend in parties and banquets, but it is harder to get it done in short notice. You may consider booking a hall that already offers fixtures for concealed lighting.

Hang up some balloons

Nothing screams “Party!” as much as balloons do. Balloons are a perfect way to make your hall look fun and inviting for any occasion. From weddings, birthdays, anniversaries to corporate parties and seminar banquets, balloons are never out of place. You can hang them from your walls or string them up on the ceiling or even have floating balloons strung up from the tables or chairs.

Pay attention to the ceiling and floors

A common mistake in party hall decoration is to concentrate too much on the walls and ignore the ceilings and floors. Make sure your floors have proper matting, consider artificial moss or grass as your mats, and have a big red welcome mat at the entrance. The ceiling must also be decorated, use streamers, lanterns, chandeliers or get quirky according to your theme.

For example, if your theme is Vegas, you can have casino themed floors or mats, or if you’re having a birthday party, you could have Disney or other cartoon character models hanging from the ceiling.

Place small Vignettes

A perfect way to make your parties classy is by creating small vignettes around the hall. A vignette is a small assortment of decorative items like antiques that make a pretty picture. Vignettes are most often based on foliage and flora, so consider a vase with flowers or a small potted plant or bonsai. If your space is limited, you can choose to make the vignettes small and minimal.

Getting a few fake trees or topiaries and decking them out with lights is another way to create decorative pieces for the hall. Giving the guests something pretty to look at and talk to each other about is always a good idea to make a party exciting and stop guests from getting bored.

Divide your space

The regular format of tables around the room and a dance floor in the middle or a stage at the end has been around for too long and can tend to get boring for your guests. Divide your space up creatively, use screens or decorative walls to create separate areas for dining, lounging, dancing, and celebrations.

Get fancy with the cutlery

The same old normal glasses, plates, spoons and forks are another way to bore your guests. If you use cutlery that is unique and goes with the theme of your party, it will make the guests feel more special that you put in the extra effort. You can get ornate cutlery without crossing your budget if you choose not to get silver but just stick to imitations.

Be creative with the chairs and tables

Most parties use the generic tables and chairs draped with cloth, and it has become something of a cliché in parties and banquets. Breaking this cliché and getting ornamental chairs and tables is a great way to make your party special for your guests. Many agencies hire out unique sets of chairs and tables at affordable rates, and it is an excellent spend to check them out.

Conclusion

If you stick to a theme and keep these tips in mind, your party or banquet hall will definitely be a hit and stick in the mind of your guests. The good decor is an essential part of the party and can be just as important as the quality of the food and entertainment. So go ahead and plan your party and make sure you check all the boxes when it comes to decorating the hall.

Following your day to day experience you can conceive the idea that surpassing the basic human needs bath-place is a retreat of relaxing moments where you basically mull over myriad solutions to your every-day problems. And special attention is its utmost necessity.

Creative and charming bath décor can transform your sense of belongingness towards the key areas of your house and also give you certain points to start remodeling or building the new interior.

Here are some facts which are important for you to consider while going for a new bath-look.

1.    Light

Let in the natural light. Natural light brings in with it a very feeling of calmness, freshness, and serenity while enlightening the whole interior with bright visible rays. You have to make use of sunlight by using large glass panels on the windows and skylights. For the sake of privacy, it’s better to opt for privacy glass which is not see-through, yet they allow light to pass. By using tinted glass panels on skylights, you can have a mood lighting arrangement that is soothing and relaxing.

Apart from the natural light, one must set up artificial lighting for ambiance while in a bath. A luxuriant bath always possesses a vibe of its own, and that will be incomplete without proper mood lighting. Dimmers for overhead lamps and switches for customized lampshades that evoke a sensitive touch can be good fixtures. Actually, there are a lot of modern hi-tech lighting arrangement that function vividly including on voice command, gesture control and specially located switches that are easily accessible while let's say- you are in the hot tub.

2.    Décor surrounding the tub

The tub is like the heart of modern luxurious baths nowadays. But they don’t perform in isolation. Things around them define their beauty. You have to be very precise while choosing the surrounding theme as it also depends on other factors such as tile pattern, wall decorations, a color of the interior, etc. Let’s take an example of one theme which is wooden and represents the theme of the sixties. In this, you will see a milk-white bathtub placed in a spacious open place inside the bathroom. There will be very few articles kept alongside it such as two wooden coffee tables of chocolate brown finish on the head-ward side of the tub. A bunch of yellow tulips will be at the helm of those tables inside a glass pot. Fragrance bottles, shampoo container, soap holder, all made of glass gives it a sense of class.

Besides those decorating ideas, you need to focus on the cleanliness of the tub and hiding the plumbing underneath the floor or in the walls would be a great idea, unless the bold pipes are climbing on to the tub and walls enhance the interior attraction.

3.    Accents

Accents come into picture when we see various products of artistic or otherwise origin mounting cupboards, mirror holders, bathtubs, window sills, etc. Those articles are like spices on the curry that you want to be delightful. Besides matching the interior in theme, those materials should be able to bring in the sense of joy and belongingness to make the atmosphere sensitive. Wall décor products such as wallpapers, pictures, mirror holders, light bulbs, etc. designer cupboards and panels are such things that deserve their share of attention as the add-ons.

Provided you have already chosen the theme of the bath, and you can buy decorating products of local accent that invigorate the feeling of home. Handmade doormats of coconut rope, shell embellished wall mirror frame, engraved wooden tool besides the vintage striped wooden brownish red table, a large glass vessel reused as flower pot, chequered glass panels on window, door hangings made of seashells, etc. are a few examples of how you can modify and renew the accents. One of the easiest options is to insert a natural accent by adding fake palm trees, ficus trees or artificial ferns in the setting that brings a beachy vibe as they are of sandy vegetation kind. Silk hydrangea or silk purple tulips in clear glass vase by the window can accentuate the sensitivity.

4.    De-clutter space

Appropriate and efficient use of space becomes evident if you are adamant for a luxurious and spacious bath. Do not put random things at whatever place you feel right. Towels, soaps and shampoo bottles and other daily needs must be in cabinets made for that purpose or in baskets which are all the more interesting if considered for a more customized bath area. Buy a few small bamboos made baskets to be kept beside the sink where you can pile up the toothbrush, paste or creams, and other cosmetics. Towels must have a dedicated spot from where those will be accessible and also give a richer look. Roll the towels, as it looks really comfy and displays them in specially fixed bamboo made shelves beside the tub or bathing area. An amazing idea would be to get the best of those towels folded and hang them from an antique ladder just next to the clay-made white bowl-shaped sinks on top of a spotted marble frame. This whole set-up will represent a spa-type panorama.

De-cluttering should be precise as here you have many options like using antique objects in an innovative way, getting rid of unpleasant things like extra tools and towels or fixing small cabinets on the wall with a matching pattern to showcase your bath collection.

5.    A few outlooks

Given below are some design models that you can replicate by your own.

(a)    Pink and marble-

Faint pink shade on the walls and ceiling and a slight blackish white marble flooring will become a supreme conjugal. Crown jewel will be the second layer of décor comprising of black and white artwork.

(b)    An outdoor view-

Hanging on the stone wall is a large mirror that reflects light coming from the huge window of the bath. Simple brush-stroke is found on the vast curtains covering the dignity of the window. The outdoor view from the window is enhanced by the reflections from the mirror.

(c)    Gentle curves-

Separating the bath is a curved white wall which is ornamented by the parallel black designer railings to be used as hangers for clothing. The boldness of the bath is further emphasized by the curved reveal of the wall and the glass panels covering its other sides.

Far from ultra-modern ravages is the panoramic white embellishing your interior which happens to be the harbinger of peace and calmness at the correct moment of relaxation.
