If you’ve ever seen any photos of my home at all, you’ll know that I’m all about bringing plants and greenery in. I’m a firm believer that you can’t have too many plants, and I’m constantly looking for new ways to add both real and faux plants to my home. But, despite my love of plants, one thing I’ve never had a ton of around my home is faux flowers.
I’ve used faux greenery stems in vases a ton throughout the years, but I’ve never really gravitated to actual flowers. Sure, I bring in the occasional bouquet from Trader Joe’s, but that’s about the extent of it. Until recently. Last spring, on a whim, I bought these faux tulip stems. Tulips are my favorite flower and I wanted to have them in my house all the time. I loved them so much that it has inspired me to slowly start adding more and more faux flowers around my home.
And, well, I think it’s safe to say I’m officially addicted. I love the little thrill of joy I get from having fresh flowers in the house, but it can be expensive to keep up with buying them and I honestly hate the maintenance of it all. I find the process of trimming them and keeping the water clean and disposing of them when they start to wilt to be so tedious and annoying. If I can capture that joyful feeling without any of the work…why wouldn’t I?!
I’ve had really great luck with some faux floral bouquets that look super realistic. So far, I have my tulips from last year, this Ranunculus bouquet, and I just recently added on some faux Baby’s Breath. There’s something about each one of these little moments in my home that make me pause, take a breath, and smile. And I think we could all use more little spots like that sprinkled around the house, no?!
So, I spent some time gathering a few of my favorite faux florals that I’ve purchased (in addition to the ones mentioned above, I love setting out number four in the fall!), along with a few of the ones I’ve been eyeing. For example, number 17 and number 20 will find a spot in my home soon!
I put a particular emphasis on finding faux flowers that are affordable. Often, silk flowers and greenery stems can get really expensive. I get it, because the more realistic ones can be expensive to produce…but I’m not interested in spending $50+ on some fake flowers, you know?! So, everything linked below is incredibly affordable, looks realistic, and has great reviews. You’re welcome.
