Benefits of Artificial Plants
Our lives can get crazy, right? And if you’re like me, you don’t want your home to reflect how busy your life is and this is where decorating with artificial plants comes in. Here are some of the many benefits from filling your home with artificial plants:

Budget: Don’t have the budget to put a bouquet in every corner of your home? Go with fake bouquets that don’t need to be replaced every single week. That gets expensive! When you go with high quality fake flowers, you can have gorgeous flowers all year around.

Pets: Many plants are toxic to pets and some pet owners complain that they can’t keep their pets from eating their floral décor. Artificial plants solve many problems for us passionate pet owners.

Allergies: I have terrible allergies and I feel so guilty thrWowing away beautiful bouquets of flowers that people so thoughtfully gift to me. Once I discovered high quality artificial flowers, I get to have bouquets in my house again!

Traveling: It can be a pain having someone come to your house to water your plants when you’re traveling. And then there is the issue of trust. Trust that your friend won’t forget to water your plants and that you won’t come home to a house full of dead plants. Just in case you didn’t realize it, fake plants don’t require water…Lack of green thumb: If you’re like me, you kill every plant you have ever tried to take care of. I have impressed my mom with a living room full of luscious hanging baskets and bamboo trees that require no green thumb.

Longevity: As long as you dust them occasionally, artificial plants will last for a very long time.

How to Decorate With Fake Flowers

Wreaths: A beautiful wreath on the front door makes a beautiful first impression of your home and there are hundreds of wreaths made with artificial flowers.

Balance colors: If your furniture and walls are primarily earth tones, sprinkle in some color with a purple orchid or deep red roses. If your room already has a lot of color in it, go for a white bouquet of peonies or a bamboo tree to balance out the colors in your room.
