Are you ready to transition your home to fall? While I don’t tend to use many seasonal specific decor items, there’s always a spot in my home for foliage! On the dining table, on a entry table, console or dresser, on your mantel, nightstand, on the kitchen counter…you can always find a spot!
While it can be wonderful to forage out in nature, it’s totally fine to use faux foliage. If you have allergies or limited options in your yard, you might prefer faux! They can be worth the investment over store bought because they’ll last a very long time.
Today I’ve rounded up some of my favorite faux foliage (and preserved flowers, and even some cool iron flowers!) online as well as a few tips for getting the most interesting and realistic look.
Faux Foliage Tips:
- Mix real and faux. No one needs to know it’s not all real. It can be difficult to tell the difference at a glance so let it be your secret. Adding a few faux pieces can help your real foliage go farther and give you a variety of shapes, colors and flowers you may not have access to in your own yard.
- Select a few faux seasonal statement stems that you mix in with other staple greenery or foliage. Keeping less seasonal specific blooms or branches will cut down on the amount of seasonal items you need to store.
- Bend the branches and leaves so they feel more relaxed and organic!
- Vary the stem heights in the vase give it a more interesting shape.
- Create an airy arrangement, leaving breathing room for a simpler look.
- Pack a visual punch by using just one type of foliage.
- Use unique containers for your foliage to make a one-of-a-kind statement!
- Fill the bottom of glass vessels with rocks for more interest.
- You can use water in the bottom of a glass vase to make faux look more realistic!
A PENNY FOR YOUR THOUGHTS:
I know people have strong opinions about faux vs. real flowers…so tell me, are you a fan of faux? Or is it a no-go?
