Fabulous faux

silk hydrangeas beside fresh magnolia leaves

flowers and friand are real, the lemons are faux

some beautiful roses - fresh and fragrant

The old silk flowers have come a long way since the early 1980's and our new selection of faux flowers will take your breath away as well as leaving your guests wondering how you manage to always have your rooms looking fresh and vibrant.

The trick of the trade, I think, is to mix them with fresh flowers / foliage. Grab some branches of mock orange or gardenia and stick them in a vase. Magnolia leaves are to die for just as they are.
A big bunch of orientals will deliver fragrance and elegance. Roses scream romance and opulence.
Look at what's in season and have a fresh display each week and move your faux's around the house.

Don't underestimate the power of the vessel either, it's all in the presentation. Mix it up and have fun, it will engage your senses and create curiosity.
