Artificial florals were once taboo.
Lately, they’ve become more popular.
At first glance, artificial succulents often don’t look much different than the real thing. Succulents are attractive and modern decorations and pair well with items such as sand, stone, grasses and branches.

When choosing silk florals, consider arrangements that are both large and small. Small single bloom arrangements may prove to have the biggest impact on a side table, end table or in a bathroom.
MAKE YOUR OWN
Making your own arrangements can be fun, easy and affordable. Some basic materials include:
▪ A vessel to use for your arrangement
▪ Blooms or succulents (bunches or individual stems)
▪ Moss, river stones or sand to create a foundation for your arrangement
Instead of just choosing a traditional floral arrangement, why not consider one that is unique? From bamboo to topiary, artificial flowers don’t have to look fake.
MIX AND MATCH
One of the most successful design techniques is to mix and match, which can also apply when using artificial flowers. Whether in a single room or throughout the home, mix and match different styles of arrangements for maximum impact.
