Hooray for the gardeners of the world--and plant nurseries--who fill our lives with so much natural beauty in the form of fresh flowers and potted plants! Long may you dig!
For those of us who have neither a green thumb nor an unlimited plant budget, there’s still hope for bringing the fresh look of nature indoors--in the form of faux greenery and succulents.
The wonderful thing about good quality faux-liage is that it’s nearly indistinguishable from real. And oh, the versatility! So here’s the dirt on decorating with faux plants (well, actually, no dirt required)!
Simply tuck a few stems in your tiered tray among your other small decorative accents for that pop of color and bit of nature.
Faux-liage is the perfect complement for your dining table decor. Consider a green wreath as a charger for your dinner plates. A dough bowl filled with a variety of succulents makes a sweet centerpiece.
Then, too, placing greenery and succulent stems among your other elements (vases of flowers, candlesticks, bowls) like a runner is another beautiful and imaginative use.
Of course, the wreath is also a great look for your front door to welcome your guests, or hanging from the doors of a console or bookcase.
There’s no better time than summer to add the beauty of plant life to your home--especially if you can accomplish it without sweating in the garden! At The Mint Julep, we have ideas, and we’re happy to share!
