AA's Style Tip.

❝ Your faux flower arrangement will last forever and any artificial flowers or stems can be repurposed into new or updated arrangements to reflect the changing of the seasons or celebrations. I love to change up my vases to showcase my new favourite faux botanicals to echo the natural landscape, it's a real game changer."

Steps For Choosing The Best Artificial Flowers

Step 1: The Location

Decide where you are going to display your flowers as this will determine the type of flowers and how many you will need. For instance a mantle arrangement may require taller stems while a dining table centrepiece will need something shorter.

Step 2: The Vessel

Work in conjunction with the shape and style of the vase classic shapes and colours always work. If you choose to use glass vases, use minimal stems as you want to avoid the stems becoming the focal point. View Abigail Ahern's covetable collection of vases for all styles of flower arrangements.

Step 3: Composition

Artificial flowers with strong rigid stems like rustic faux thistles (meadow, wild, globe) look breath-taking in tall narrow necked vases. If you want to bring out your inner florist and create a mixed gathering, follow these simple steps below.

Step One

Pick Your Hero Blooms

Large flower heads like roses, hydrangeas or peonies, these will be the most dominant.

Step Two

Choose Your Foliage

Add in your faux foliage and smaller filler flowers like juniper leaf, wild berry, and eucalyptus.

Step Three

Finishing Touches

Add some texture with seed heads (sorghum, eucalyptus gum nut, dried wild allium) and dried grasses.

How To Care For Your Faux Flowers.

To keep your faux flowers looking their best, we recommend that you gently wipe them with a soft dry cloth or blow them gently using a hairdryer on the coolest setting. If you choose to change up your artificial flower arrangements seasonally, and store some away, be sure to pop them into a lidded box in a dry environment so that they continue to look their best for your next display.
