It has taken a while to get on board with having faux flowers in the home but more and more of us are exploring the possibility.

Now is a great time to find those realistic looking stems, ideal for dressing a table or shelf. This season has also seen an increased interest in a 70’s favourite – dried flowers.

Invest in one or two different stems and then mix in real flowers when required. The realism is so good now on these fauxs and of course they will last.

Also look out for faux plants, perfect for dark corners of rooms. No chance of killing these off!
