Some people are completely anti-silk flowers. But I have tons of silk flower arrangements around the house, and I'm all for a good one! Something nice and bright that brings in a pop of color is the perfect touch to a room, and best of all, you can leave it out year long! It never wilts or dies.
I keep my silk flower arrangements out all year, even in the winter. It's a nice reminder that spring is just around the corner. :)
I picked up these silk flowers from Wal-Mart this winter and put this arrangement together for super cheap. Just a few large pink blooms was all I needed, mixed in with a little faux baby's breath here and there. Complete with a simple glass vase, and there you go! It brightens up the kitchen and adds a nice little pop of color.
Bright frames have also been a weakness of mine over the last year or so. This yellow frame in my mini gallery arrangement was also from Wal-Mart last year. I still love the nice pop of color it brings to our neutral walls!
I don't think I'll be able to take that yellow frame down for a while. You know I love to switch these frames up quite a bit, but I'm really loving our current arrangement with our engagement photos added.
I'm also still in love with my white pitcher and faux lime green hydrangeas. I got these flowers quite a while back, and they've been a staple in our living room ever since. They're a little pop of color, but at the same time they just go with everything and every style. Traditional or contemporary - these flowers are super versatile.
I really cannot wait to see some real hydrangeas outside! And pink blossoming buds on trees lining the streets! I'm getting Spring fever, I tell ya.
What are some touches in your home that make you think Spring?! Are you pro faux flower like me? I am definitely planning on incorporating some real ones inside, too this year. We're starting a flower garden in the yard and are growing our own flowers for the wedding. It will be an experience! Hoping it all works out. :)
