Fabulous Faux Flowers

I’ve planted 6 peony bushes in my yard over the last 3-4 years. They produce more and more blooms each year, but I still don’t have enough to keep me going all season. These faux peonies mixed with fresh flowers will get me through the season.

Faux forsythias are my absolute favorite flowers to display around the house! The bright pop of yellow will cheer you up in no time. I have a sweet neighbor who shares her forsythia branches with me every year. I take these cuttings and force bloom them in the house. But, while I’m waiting for the real thing, these will do just fine!

Faux Greenery

I hate to admit it, but I do not have a green thumb when it comes to household plants. I’m always forgetting to water them and move them around all the time. They’re just an incredible challenge for me. Luckily, there are so many faux greenery options out there!

I love how eucalyptus looks with other faux flowers, or just by themselves. I even mix them in with fresh flowers for the perfect filler. They also look great in a dough bowl with fruit or made into a wreath. I bring my faux eucalyptus out for Christmas decorating and keep them out through spring.

    1. I have bought some at Magnolia, Pier One, Michael’s and Hobby Lobby. I have also made the mistake of ordering online, and sometimes I’m not happy with the quality. If you have to order online, which most of us are doing right now, pay attention to the reviews, and check out their return policy! Also, try to wait for a sale, they all have them. They can be expensive! The tree is from quite a while ago, but I know Pottery Barn had them.
