Faux Floral White Wednesday

I think there are some incredible faux florals out there to rival the real thing. Now mind you, I prefer the "real flower" anyday of the week. 

Nothing could match the scent of a fresh bloom...but for those of us on a budget and without a flower garden, there are some pretties out there to freshen up your nest that won't break the bank.... and will last indefinitely! 

Take these...I bought them at Michael's Arts & Crafts today. All the stems were buy one - get one free, so I said "hey now"... this is the time to get those white roses I've been wanting...

 Look how pretty and the petals are so soft
 Some faux petunias in my kitchen...very realistic
  These are not quite as real looking, but I love them anyway
 Ah yes, pink roses...but in a perfectly shabby white basket, so this still counts for White Wednesday, right girls?
And off the theme just a smidge...but still floral, is my Christie Repasy print encased in a white tin ceiling frame.  I think I may be getting ready to relocate this one to another room.
Still, all in all...I'm most looking forward to prettying up my porch with some real potted flowers...just want to be sure the "frosty nights" are really gone here in New England first. 

 I'll be sure to post pics, but for now I'm heading over to Faded Charm to plug into White Wednesday. See you all there!

Flowers do liven up any space...
faux or not...

I agree! I can't always afford real flowers and I'm not the best gardener. Much prefer real but sometimes faux has to do.
Pretty photos!

SO pretty Karen! I was just admiring some faux pretties at AC Moore today. Now I wish I snagged a few after looking at your lovely displays. Love that wicker basket, too!
Hope to thrift with you soon....
Take care,
Susan

I don't think there's anything wrong with faux flowers! I plan on getting some myself as I only have a small deck, no garden:( I've seen the ones that even have faux water droplets on them, so cute! Yours look gorgeous:)
