Friends… I’m a LIVE plant type of person, but ever since moving into our new home, I’m struggling to keep anything alive (even low light plants, argh). Part of me is tired of wasting money on plants that survive a couple months, increasingly look sad with time, then die. It’s kind of a depressing cycle. The worst part is- I consider myself to have a green thumb. My outdoor plants are thriving and have no problem here! Anyway, I’m caving and I’m going to test out some faux plants because I’m trying to scatter more greenery & botanicals around this place in an effort to add “life”. Click through to see the ones I’ve been saving, if your environment also isn’t ideal for keeping plants alive, or if you have a black thumb… no matter the circumstance, I’ll report back with my favorites once they arrive.
This is really my first venture at faux plants, because as I previously mentioned- real, live plants have always been my jam. Well.. challenge accepted! I set out to find the best faux plants and of course I started with Amazon, because why not try to save some money and put my free prime shipping to use? Here is one last sneak peek of the kitchen before the reveal on Monday, but would you believe that greenery is faux? It is! See- it’s not all bad.
This is what I came up with…
Click directly on the plants & botanicals below to shop!
I ordered #1, #6, and #7. I’ll be sure to report back with my thoughts! My friend Jenny just used #12 in her gorgeous sunroom makeover and that tree looks really giant, convincing, and amazing overall!
The fishtail palm below is also faux… remember it from Emily’s kitchen? You can find it here, and although it’s not an “Amazon Find“- it gives me hope that there are seriously realistic faux plants out there to be found- that look just as good as the real thing.
You can shop more of my favorite plants, planters, garden things, flowers, and botanicals using my Amazon storefront… along with lots of other curated finds! Definitely check it out if you haven’t visited yet. I’m just getting back into the swing of things over here after returning from vacation, but check back tomorrow for a new Monthly Moodboard, and next week is going to be a BIG one for the kitchen. I can’t wait to share the finished space with you!
