Nothing says summer is here like lilacs! Their beautiful purple and white blooms are wonderfully fragrant and something I look forward to each year. When in season, I like to cut them in bunches and bring them inside. The sad part… they only last a short time.
To extend the season, we’ve added some beautiful faux lilac branches to a grouping of wired bottles – a lovely and rustic welcome to summer.
When was the last time you used your ice bucket? Is it hidden away until company comes? It’s time to dig out your beautiful bucket and put it on display. You’ll quick discover that it makes a lovely vessel for potted flowers and plants.
Our Beatriz Ball metal ice buckets loves great with faux potted white agapanthus.
This faux potted plant is so realistic – even the dirt look real.
When company comes, just pop out your faux plant, give your ice bucket a quick wash and you are ready for guests!
Succulents are quite popular right now, and it’s no surprise as they are one of the most versatile plant options for decorating both inside and outside the home.
Today’s permanent succulents are so close to the real thing that you truly cannot tell them apart. Although real succulents are one of the easier plants to care for, you cannot beat good quality faux succulents for a no fuss, no worry greenery option.
They are really easy to work with, and bring a fun, casual look to floral and plant designs. We use them regularly both in the store and in custom arrangements for customers. Whether you want something formal, casual, rustic or contemporary; the container you choose will set the stage.
They also pair beautifully with other plants and flowers, including roses, hydrangea, ranunculus… endless beautiful options await! I’ve been a fan of preserved roses with succulents lately, and used them for several arrangements for our most recent Parade of Homes decor for a local builder.
These zinc planters are great in both rustic and contemporary spaces – adding dimension and natural beauty to a blank wall.
Easy to arrange, just take your pointers from nature – arrange them as they naturally grow. Many craft stores even have a good selection of succulents, so pick a few of your favorites, choose a pot, dish or planter… and have some fun!
