I do not have a green thumb but I love a splash of life, or at least the illusion of it when I decorate. One great way to achieve this look without worrying about killing beautiful plant life is by decorating with silk plants and topiaries.
I found this great site that offers high quality Silk Plants, Flowers, Topiaries, Hedges, etc. called Silk Plants Direct. Their silk plants look realistic and add a special pop of life into your decorating.
Above are some pictures of my mantle. I took a vintage vase and filled it with these green chestnut balls. They are fun and go perfectly with my theme. They can also be an accent to a beautiful vase of silk flowers.
Silk flowers are also popular with events such as weddings. Check out Silk Plants Direct. I think you’ll find a wide variety of beautiful faux plant life to spruce up your next event or decorating needs.
