Fresh flowers and plants are always my favorite decor choices, but sometimes it’s not an option. You can have a lot of fun with faux flowers and greenery these days. I’ll show you how I’ve used them throughout the house and how realistic they look.
Faux flowers and greenery can be pricey, depending on where you buy them, but worth every penny in my opinion! These faux beauties will last for years, and they really do make a huge statement. You definitely get what you pay for.

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.
Nothing says spring more than pretty pink petals like these faux cherry blossoms. They’re sure to brighten up any spot in your home.
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 dogwood branches fit in with any home decor style, They make a simple, yet beautiful statement.
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!
They give a room such a pop of color.
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.
When putting your faux greenery in a container, use your imagination. Terra cotta pots are a perfect look for spring.
Use faux trees to liven up any drab corner in your home.
Faux grasses are also a great look for spring.
I absolutely love the way faux olive branches look. They’re used in every room but love them most in the kitchen. This faux olive branch wreath looks perfect on my vintage shutters.
And how about some faux fruit? I use my lemons and green apples all spring and summer, for an added pop of color.
I hope I have inspired you to have some fun with faux flowers and greenery. Your home will look bright and cheery, even if the outdoors are still a bit gloomy. I’d love to hear what your favorite faux flowers are. Leave me a comment!

P.S. and the faux olive tree! Where did you purchase that as well?

I’m loving the faux olive branches. Where did you purchase them?
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.
