Crystal Water Beads – Perfect for a College Dorm

College dorms are notorious for being small, bland and boring. Typically they are tiny rooms with few windows if any, all meant to be shared by two people. For decades parents and students have been trying to find new and unique ways to bring light, color and individuality to dorm rooms. Crystal water beads are a great way to do just that.

Crystal water beads come in a variety of colors; making it simpler to individualize. You can use all one color, or several different colors to add a little unique flare. Choosing a small vase or jar will work nicely or you can make good use of the souvenir hurricane glass from that great trip to New Orleans! Team up a great container with an awesome color or water beads and top it off with a great plant to bring the outdoors in. You can use a nice little bamboo plant or even a little silk flower arrangement, or display the roses you get from that hot guy in Chemistry!

Keep in mind that plants need water – not always conducive to a busy college schedule complete with sports, jobs and sorority rush activities. With water beads you plant it and forget it! The beads will keep your plant healthily watered for you! They make the weekend visit to mom and even spring break a breeze. You don’t have to trust your precious plant to your room mate or suite mate.

College students are constantly looking for a way to spruce up the drab walls and space of their dorm. Colorful water beads in a great vase with the perfect plant are a great way to make your space really yours.

Water Beads Help You Enjoy Your Vacation

Don’t tell me it’s never happened before. You go out of town for a few days, confident that your container garden is sufficiently hydrated to make it through the vacation. The leaves are green, the stems are strong. You come home to sad, wilted plants that don’t have the strength to bear fruit. Months of work, erased in such a short time.

Or maybe you have a houseplant in a room that isn’t often visited. Do you come in, only to see brown leaves scattered on the ground?

Thankfully, these days are a thing of the past. Hydration technology has evolved such that gardeners need not worry about dry conditions as much as they used to. The next time you’re repotting a plant, add in some of our water beads or Hydro Soil. In fact, you can even add them in without repotting — just mixing it into the top few inches of soil.

These special beads are water-saving polymers that help store water, even in dry conditions. You’ll find yourself watering less and reaping more from your plants. A happy, well-watered plant is a fruitful plant. So you’ll see more crops from your fruit and vegetable plants and more healthy looking houseplants.

You’ll even find yourself adding water beads and Hydro Soil to your bedding plants and trees in your yard. With the droughts of this summer, even trees with deep roots are having trouble finding water. Mixing in our crystals with the existing soil will help your outdoor plants go many days longer between watering. That’s good news for your plants AND for your wallet.

We’ve done the hard part: creating the technology to keep your plants happy and healthy. Your job to add it to the soil is easy. Contact us to learn more today. And then stay on vacation for an extra day or two. We’ve got your plants covered.

Water Beads Make a Bold Statement for Vases

People constantly strive to surround themselves with nature’s beauty. Consequently, they are eager to bring the outside in by showcasing beautiful bouquets in glass vases. The transparent quality of the glass allows the viewer to see all aspects of the flowers’ natural aspects: blooms, leaves, and stems–the way nature intended. You may ask yourself then how can this beauty be improved upon? An aesthetically pleasing addition that compliments and doesn’t detract is water beads for vases.

There are a greater variety of crystal water beads than you might first imagine. Their iridescent beauty comes in a rainbow of colors, sure to suit your every need. Having a wedding? We have clear or white products that will prove the perfect backdrop to your arrangements. Throwing a fun birthday party for a friend? Then perhaps try a vibrant blue or bright magenta to spice up the celebration. You can even mix the colors that you most love for a designer look all your own.

In addition to the array of colors, we also offer choice in size. If you have a smaller arrangement, perhaps you want to use our regular sized beads. Larger vases may call for larger beads or a mixture of the two sizes for a novel appearance.

Your arrangements with our crystal beads will only be as limited as your imagination. If you are new to floral arrangement, don’t panic. We even offer some video tutorials on a variety of topics that can help you create professional-looking presentations that won’t cost you exorbitant amount of money and that will give you the pleasure of creating something beautiful yourself.

Please contact us today to explore how we can assist you in making your floral design all that more eye catching and individual.

Water Beads Are Not Just for Tables Anymore!

Ask any home decorator and they will tell you: It is the little details that make a difference in home decor. And people who love their homes will say that a little pop of color takes any drab ‘ho-hum’ room to a room that makes a statement. But sometimes infusing color into a room can be expensive, laborious, or difficult.

Ta Dah! Enter Crystal Water Beads! Use this great pop of color throughout any room and look as if you have hired a personal decorator. You might think that water beads are limited to the living room or boudoir. Au contraire, mon cher! These little powerhouses are great in your bathroom, kitchen or any room of the house. They are inexpensive, reusable, and give you more bang for your buck than a new set of throw pillows (and much easier to store!)

So give me some ideas, you say. Of course you can use them as a floral centerpiece. But get a little creative. Choose your bead color to match the flower color. Or better yet, pick a shade from the opposite end of the color wheel to make that arrangement pop. And don’t leave centerpieces confined to the dining table. How about on the mantle, the dresser, or even on the bathroom sink?

And water beads don’t just have to nestle with your flowers. Nest candles in a clear bowl to make a beautiful colorful display. Take them to the patio for that family barbeque or pool party. And if you are having overnight guests, use water beads in his/her favorite colors throughout the guest room.

A beautiful eye-catching display can also be made by positioning three clear jars or vases of different heights and shapes together with different colors of water beads in each. And parties, celebrations, and meetings are made all the more festive by using water beads strategically in the space.

So think outside the vase! Contact us for a great assortment at an awesome price!

Water Beads Can Make Your Centerpiece Decorations Pop!

People have been using flowers as decoration since 3000 B.C. when Egyptians first started to adorn their banquet tables with colorful wreaths & bouquets. But after so many years of use, how do you come up with a floral arrangement that is new, exciting, and appropriate for the 21st century? The answer is water beads! Water beads come in every color of the rainbow, so no matter what your color scheme is, we have you covered. Plus, with a variety of sizes and shapes to choose from, you can be sure that water beads will fit into any décor.

It’s as easy as one, two, three to use water beads to brighten up your centerpiece decorations:

1. Place the beads in a large bowl of room temperature purified water

2. Let them sit overnight.

3. Create amazing, beautiful centerpieces!

A more detailed set of instructions can be found here!

Water beads not only look stunning, they actually provide all the water needed for flowers and plants to flourish. Originally designed for farmers with hydration in mind, water beads absorb a vast amount of moisture and then disperse it to the surrounding plants as needed. That means no more checking the water level in your vases, and no more time spent lugging a watering can around the house. Plus, because water beads never release more water than your fresh-cut flowers need, the unpleasant odors caused by leaf and stem rot are a thing of the past!

So, have you made the switch to water beads yet? With our 100% satisfaction guarantee and price match promise what is there to lose? Start simplifying your life – contact us and make the switch to water beads today!
