Trick everyone's eyes with elegant arrangements

Displaying terrarriums, succulents, and fresh has been one of the most followed trends recently and for a good reason. It's a great way to bring in elements of nature and add a special touch to your home. 

However, real flowers can be hard to maintain if you lead a busy lifestyle. They also die way too soon and can be a tad too pricey if you keep buying them regularly. 

To get your hydrangea and peony fix without the hassle, we suggest you snatch up fake flowers and follow these tips on how to make them look all-natural:

Do your garden research. Study the different types of flowers and compare them to the faux ones you want to use. Stick to the same color palette if you want to mimic fresh blooms, but if you want to make a more colorful arrangement, avoid mixing unnatural combinations such as hot pinks with oranges.

If you're using potted plants, cover up your base with something that looks organic like sheet or spaghnum moss. This makes it look like your base is plant soil. You can also add small pebbles or shells to add character to the surface.

Don't buy pieces with unrealistic details. Avoid roses that have plastic water droplets on them or ones that have little Baby's Breath-type growth. If you already have these at home, you can easily peel or cut them off to give your arrangements a fresher look.
