Faux flowers are a great low maintenance decor piece to brighten your home and add pops of color on a budget. For those of you who can’t seem to keep indoor plants alive, or who suffer from pollen allergies, faux flowers are a great alternative. You don’t need many flowers to fill a vase, and they will last you a lifetime! Instead of just throwing some faux flowers into a regular vase, consider changing things up to create a new look.
Here are five fresh new ways to style with faux flowers.
Create a minimalist look with a faux orchid
Orchids are a classic yet elegant favorite. Add a sizeable faux orchid to your vase and place it anywhere in your home. Orchids make great faux flower choices as they are difficult to differentiate. You could be right next to it and not even know the difference! This is why orchids are one of my favorite go-to faux flowers!
Faux flowers with fresh greenery
To keep your arrangement simple, consider choosing one or two colors and adding greenery to round out your display. Make sure to keep your greenery simple, or it will overpower your vase and make it look messy. When it comes to filling a vase, remember that less is more. English Ivy, eucalyptus, and ferns are excellent choices for filling a vase. I love to use faux flowers as a table centerpiece and it saves money not having to buy weekly florals!
Brighten up your window displays
Adding a pop of orange or pink to your windowsill display can brighten the room. Keep your vase simple in color and design, to avoid attracting too much attention to the vase. The focus should be on the flowers, not the vase. Since faux flowers can be in direct sunlight, this is a great way to put those flowers on display!
Fill out a vase with eucalyptus
If you are having trouble filling out your vase, consider adding some eucalyptus. Mix in some faux flowers and foliage for a simple yet elegant look. You can find faux eucalyptus at most hobby shops including Hobby Lobby, Joann Fabrics, and Michaels.
Add character to the room with a unique vase
Step away from the boring vases, and find something unique. A unique colored or shaped vase can add dimension to your room and add some color to an otherwise dull space. The best place to find low-cost vases is at thrift stores! You may not have many options regarding selection, but you can usually find some pretty unique vases here for only a few dollars. You can even upcycle them for just a few dollars to make them stand out.
