Faux Flowers, What?


There's a real bloom (a single spider mum) in the background. Going strong at 2 weeks.

I know, I know. You're thinking, "faux flowers, isn't that a bit 1980s?" Yes, they certainly can look dated and formal and dusty. But times have changed and so have the quality and types of faux florals out there. I was so inspired by Camila's honest confession in regards to purchasing faux flowers that I felt confident in doing the same thing. I too, had sworn off faux flowers but with the cold temps and no peonies in sight, I was starting to feel desperate and in need of Spring in my life. Especially, if I'm going to be stuck inside at home to stay warm (we're supposed to get snow on Wed, UGH).

Over the weekend, I dragged Steve and Cora to HomeGoods and Marshall's to see if we could find some faux florals in vases. But no such luck. Then I remembered that Michaels has a great selection of faux florals, so that's where Cora and I went yesterday. And yes, we left with peonies and anemones. I couldn't help myself when I saw the anemones. I also picked up the two vases that you see in the photos. I think the trick to having faux flowers look as real as possible is to place them in containers that won't show the stems (the stems are dead giveaways in my humble opinion). At least that's what I think. Which is why I chose the blue and white ceramic vases.

The flowers look pretty real, wouldn't you say? I'm still all for real flowers when and if possible, so I'm probably going to hit up Trader Joe's today for some real blooms. But I've got to say, seeing the peonies & anemones puts a smile on my face every time I see them.

Oh, and head on over to Dallas' blog to see my newest contributor board, Dreaming of the South of France!
