Over the years I have developed the rather expensive "habit" of buying silk flowers and wreaths to match the changing seasons. As one can imagine, this can add up quickly. For example, one high-end store sells artificial garlands at a consistent $59.00 per unit. Need two? Add on another $59.00 PLUS shipping. Insane, right? Yet, as what most stores have to offer is either of a poor quality or poor selection, and I really wanted the garlands, I bought them. Needless to say, I was very happy with the quality and appearance of my purchase, but I was NOT loving the fact that I would have to keep shelling out that kind of money if I wanted something of superior quality and aesthetic appeal.
With spring around the corner, I was on yet another search for some new pieces and quite by accident stumbled upon the silkworxbylori.com website. I found all sorts of totally unique items (finally!) and the prices were more than reasonable. In fact, her prices were great. I quickly placed my order (shipping can be combined - BONUS!) and have to say, that I was totally blown away with the quality of the items I just received, the 4' Dogwood Garland and 6' Forsythia Garland. Real twigs on the forsythia, instead of cheaply made brown plastic branches. Realistic looking blossoms/flowers on all of them. Honestly, they are just beautifully made pieces. As a further plus, the customer service is outstanding. No, really...outstanding. It is a PLEASURE to deal with this company and I will certainly be ordering from them again in the future.
If you are in the market for silk decorative items, please do not hesitate to try this company out, you will not be disappointed.
Thanks again, Lori and Ralph!

I just received my order for the 5' Areca Palm from your company and I just have to say what an exceptionally, high quality product. I could not be happier! You have a 'keeper' as a customer.
I ordered two of your Outdoor Saga Palms and I absolutely love them. Because I keep them outside I had to put them in a container and fill with concrete so they do not blow over. We live on the water and sometimes get a lot of wind and these trees have done wonderfully! Even in the snow (see picture) - thanks for a great product!
I received my Clematis and Hydrangea Garland and just wanted to tell you that it is absolutely beautiful. I had been shopping around in the stores for it and haven't seen anything like it for the price.
I wanted to say a big THANK YOU to every one of you who did your part to help pull together all of the details for another amazing segment about the World Vision Gift Catalog with Good Morning America! There is no question that we would not have been able to do it without each of you. I wanted to provide you with a link to the broadcast, The Gift of Charity: http://abcnews.go.com/Video/playerIndex?id=6504959.
The Orange Trees are shown in this clip (price tag shown in front of the Orange Trees are for real Orange Trees that are available for purchase through the World Vision Gift Catalog).
Again, thank you, thank you, thank you!

Thank you for the remarkably timely fashion of the 4' Bamboo Palm I ordered. My daughter-in-law received the tree in 4 days. Thank you for the prompt service.
We recently ordered 2 of the Set of 2 Mum Bushes with Sitting Scarecrows (4 of them) that we LOVE! I am thrilled to have such a fun fall decoration that I can just store away and bring out again next year without wasting money on real mums that I will just kill.
While searching the web for an artificial silk tree to send to my mother for Mother's Day, I found Silkworx by Lori. I wrote an email to her, then I decided to call her direct. She was so helpful and friendly I gave my approval for a 6 foot white Dogwood Tree. She assured me it would be beautiful and delivered on time. I also asked her to pick a pot to send with the tree.
I could not have been more pleased with her work and her choice of a pot.
The gift was a total success. My mother was dumbfounded and she absolutely loved both items.
Mother's Day was a huge success thanks to Silkworx by Lori.

I wanted you to know I received the Verbena Trees I ordered. I love them and they are just what I was looking for. Thanks so much.
Just wanted to tell you that I already received my 2 Spiral Rosemary Leaf Topiaries. They are just what I wanted and are perfect outside my front door. Quality is very good as well. Thank you so much for your assistance in helping me choose. I'm a satisfied customer!
Thank you - I bought a 7.6' Green Ficus Tree (#4250) from you a couple of years ago, and I have loved it! My thumb is so brown! You are a lifesaver - the amount I have spent to replace dead plants could have bought everything you sell!
- Sarah from Virginia
The 12' Green Ficus Tree arrived yesterday and looks great. My daughter (an artist with a very critical eye) exclaimed over how beautiful and how real it looks. Thanks again for all your help. I'll be sure to pass your name on to my friends.
Thank you so much for the excellent service you have provided us with the silk tree and plants that are now on display in our sunroom! I decided on silk because although you would think a sunroom is the best place to grow real plants, they started perspiring from the humidity and actually stained my rug. After taking them all out and shampooing my rug I decided to look for “quality” silk plants. You have definitely provided us with quality, prompt service at a very reasonable price. Thank you so much. I’ll be calling you soon for more.
- Sandra from Pennsylvania
The two silk trees were the perfect complements to our decorating needs. The colors of the large Japanese Maple Tree fit beautifully in the study and the unique look of the Ginko Tree adds interest to our family room. The items were of excellent quality and we appreciate your personal service.
- A.T. & J.T. from Illinois
Thank you so much for all the work on the Orange Trees for our day on QVC television - they were great!
- Kristin from Cushmans Fruit
We have received the Bamboo Trees and they are fabulous. They look wonderful and are just like you described on the website.
I purchased two of the 4' Cypress Pine Topiary Trees. They are unreal...and I mean that in a good way. You have a loyal customer. Thanks for providing such quality at a value price.
It's 100 degrees plus in North Carolina and my stuff looks great with no water.
Eight foot Areca Palm assembly was a snap - looks great! Thanks!
- Steve from California
I just received my order. Many thanks! The Azalea Topiaries look even better than their pics on your website. I was especially pleased with the care taken in packing and shipping them for I've been very disappointed in the past with similar orders from other firms which seemingly had good products but had shoddy packing and frequently shipped the wrong item.
- John from California
I wanted to let you know that the 2 Sweet Bay Ball Topiaries I ordered are GREAT and look fantastic in our event space. Its a 17,000 sq ft space, so we will need a bunch more.
Thanks so much,
- Ann Margaret
After almost 5 years, our 7' Deluxe Areca Palm is still as pretty and versatile in our home.
- Johna from Tampa
We just received the Bamboo Palm! It is really great - better than I hoped. When I decided to enlarge our "plant" collection - I will be back! Thanks for everything!
I wanted to say thank you! I received the 10' Golden Cane Palm and it is just perfect. I've had several people comment that the tree doesn't look silk AT ALL. I had to tell them that it wasn't real!
- A.R. from California
I just wanted to let you know that your trees really give our hot tub area a true "tropical paradise getaway" for me and my husband! When we are in the hot tub at night with lights shining on the 9' Phoenix Palms, Thatch, and Banana Fruit Bunch, we feel like we are in a different place! It's very relaxing and the trees look very real.
Thanks again for your wonderful service!
Wonderful Lori...We received the tree today and absolutely LOVE it! We saw the same Raphis Palm at a furniture store for $699. Imagine how excited I was to find it on your site for less than $300 with shipping! Thanks so much for your services. We'll tell our friends about your site.
- M.M. from Colorado
I received our 5' Sago Palm yesterday. It's Awesome!!! Thank you. If I ever need a silk arrangement of some sort, I will definitely come back to your company.
Thanks so much for the quick response to my order, Lori. I just wanted to let you know that the Ivy and Fern plants are beautiful and that I will be ordering more in the near future.
- D.P., from Wisconsin
Pleased.........the Self-Shaped Boston Fern Hanging Baskets are way beyond my expectations and anything else I've seen in stores!!
Thanks so much!

My Pip Berry Wreath arrived today! It is just beautiful and I appreciate the high quality and good value for this product. Definitely a keeper! Thanks so much.
- Nancy from Washington
My Preserved Eucalyptus Wreath just arrived this morning, and I'm SO pleased with it! I love that you created it with all-natural materials (and none of that weird plastic-y stuff), and that it's so full and colorful. The quality and design has really exceeded my expectations. And it looks fabulous on my front door!
I received the Preserved Eucalyptus Heart Wreath yesterday...and I have to say, it was even better then expected. You're customer service is the best...I'm recommending you to all my friends... and you will definitely see me again...OH Wait...You already did...Just bought a tree!!! Can't wait to see it!
The Rose and Sage Preserved Eucalyptus Wreath that I ordered arrived yesterday. It is beautiful.
Thanks so much.
I wanted to write and thank you for remaking the wreath for us. The burgundy/sage colors are exactly what I was hoping for. Thanks again for your customer satisfaction policy and for the great quality product.
I received the Coconuts today and they are perfect for our project!
Thank you again.
- Dave from Canada
Your Bananas arrived safe and sound and are now attached to my tree - they look great! Thanks!
This piece, Woven Wicker Wall Pocket is beautifully designed and fits perfectly for the space I had in mind! Thanks so much!
- Joyce from New York
I hope you can do the same thing you did on my last order, adjusting the shipping cost, that saved me a lot, I thank you for that and that's why I came back to you. Thank you so much, and I am very pleased with my previous order and I'm sure this will be of the same quality, again thank you.
