Fantastic Faux Flowers

I absolutely love artificial flowers, greens and berries for a variety of reasons. In the long-run they are cheaper than the real thing (of course they can't compete with mother nature), they don't drop pollen all over the place, always look fresh and when they are out of season - bag'em and throw them into the attic!

These gumball, twiggy branches, and small pine cone branches are fabulous.

Palmetto berries, figs and custard apples make a great combination.

Love these - especially the first and third pic. When we lived in Boston we used to love to drive up to Portsmouth on the weekends - great city

These are all wonderful! Love the berries, you are so right, the "faux" never wilt, don't need water, and are perfect to use in spaces where real flowers wouldn't work well.
