I love fresh flowers in a home. Who doesn’t? It is such a wonderful part of a welcoming, comfortable home. The beauty of flowers really make you feel happy and evoke such a warm and comforting emotions. We give them as gifts,m we use them at weddings and they even help offer sympathy during difficult times.
But, let’s face it, they are expensive, they don’t last and if you live in a small town, getting affordable fresh flowers every week for your home is difficult, not to mention expensive.
So, naturally, the next step would be to grow your own – I love that idea. But here in North Central Texas our growing season is short, not due to cold, but to extreme summer heat. As summer continues, the weather gets hotter and hotter and well, you get the picture. Flowers and plants struggle and actually quit blooming as it heats up in July and August. So going into the garden on a dewy morning to cut beautiful stems for your house just isn’t an option.
The solution: FAUX FLORALS. They have come so far in recent years and look so realistic. They are gorgeous, they don’t fade away and they can be used again and again, they don’t cause allergies, aren’t harmful to pets and kids. And, if you don’t have a green thumb, you can’t cause them any harm. They are the perfect fresh flower alternative for decorating your home.
And don’t forget about faux greenery as design accent for :
- Coffee Tables
- Kitchen islands and counters
- Bathroom counters and shelves
- Guest Bedrooms and baths
- Sofa Tables, end tables, entryway tables
