Faux Greenery

Im not a big fan of faux floral or greenery unless it looks real.  I mean so real that you have to touch it to make sure.  I have always loved all the faux boxwood that Restoration Hardware has in there store.

 But at over $70 a piece I have to just walk away.  So, much to my excitement, the other day I was at HomeGoods (I know, surprise, surprise) and spied this faux garden sphere in an aged-terra cotta looking bowl for…….wait for it…………… $19!!!  I think its just a nice as the Restoration Hardware one and with the money I saved I was able to buy that neat little garden bust next to it.  He creeps my family out- but I like him!  I think he needs a name too.  Paul? Herman? Thor? (kidding!! we saw that movie this weekend-he’s a cutie for sure)

So are you a fan of faux?  or are you a fresh flowers kinda person?

    I’ve always loved the boxwoods at Restoration Hardware but yours is just as pretty! Love that bust too! I got mine at Ross, my husband thinks she’s creepy too 🙂

    I never find anything at Home Goods! So cute, the same effect, so much cheaper. Great find!

    I’ll go faux with self-prescribed rules: 1) it has to grow locally outdoors and 2) it has to be in season. Boxwood is always green, so it qualifies. I’ll bend the rules for a faux houseplant, but no matter what, it has to be a good fake. Your arrangement looks fantastic.

    I have GOT to find a Home Goods in my area. Everyone keeps telling me to go and I haven’t made the time. Putting this on my to-do list! Thanks for sharing your find!

  5. I think it looks great! After MUCH internal debate, I bought the FAKE hydrangeas from Pottery Barn. I knew our cats would destroy the real thing and I REALLY wanted them for on top of our piano.

    Here’s when I really don’t like faux…when it’s stuck in the ground OUTSIDE! 😉

    I always go with the faux. From my point of view it depends on the person how to handle the faux. I have seen many people who make faux to look like a real one and sometimes people can’t able to judge whether it’s a natural or fake.
