I know many of you are quite apprehensive about using fake flowers.
And yep, they can be pretty ugly.
But growing up I realized, as I watched my mom using them here and there, that you really can create some pretty artificial arrangements.
These yellow daisies are fake...but my mom added a few real white ones.
Hydrangeas are my favourite and look so pretty.
I always use a few faux geraniums in the summer.
This bunch is from Michael's and I have had several guests mistake them for real wildflowers.
It pays to shop around and you certainly have to be choosy, but faux flowers are a great way to bring colour and life to your space when the real thing just isn't available.
Do you have a favourite faux flower?
