How to Decorate with Faux Flowers and Greenery in Winter

How are you guys doing this winter? Are the dreary days getting you down? Well, I may have a solution! Add some color and brightness to your world with flowers and greenery. I know it’s difficult to find fresh flowers and greenery this time of year. Even in the warmest climates, variety is limited. So below are tips and sources on how to decorate with faux flowers and greenery to get you through winter.

Faux Flowers

Our kitchen seems to be a favorite gathering place throughout the year, particularly in winter. I always have fresh flowers on my center island, but this time of year there are so few options that I often use my favorite faux flowers and greenery instead.

Over the years, I have gathered a collection of realistic-looking faux florals that I can put into a variety of vases or containers for an instant pop of color and freshness in the kitchen. Afloral is definitely my favorite resource for all types of high-quality artificial flowers and plants, and I think their prices are fairly reasonable.

In just minutes these pretty artificial tulips look like an overflowing vase of spring and unless you touch them you would think they were real. Watch the video below to see how I made this arrangement look realistic.

One of my favorite faux flowers is a peony. These pink blooms make such a beautiful statement on my kitchen breakfast nook and add a pop of brightness even on the most dreary day. I used a variety of peony styles to create this look.

I love the mix of pink peonies with pink tulips in this little corner. I use these year-round when I don’t have time to get fresh flowers.

Simple faux branches in bowls or lower containers are also a great idea. In this case, I used a tall pitcher with just a sprinkling of dogwood branches on my center island.

An alternative is to use a favorite dough bowl with a few stems, slightly bent and layered to fit with some linen napkins dropped in to cover the exposed stems.

Faux Greenery and Topiaries

As much as I LOVE fresh flowers and floral arranging, I definitely don’t have a green thumb. I mean not even a little bit. I always have good intentions, but often forget to water my live plants. (I know it sounds awful, letting those poor plants be thirsty!) So, my solution has been to find great faux greenery to decorate with year-round.

I have discovered that quality faux plants usually look better than live plants and add color and freshness to any space.

In my living room, I am using a large fiddle leaf fig to fill in the empty corner where my Christmas tree was and a couple of faux miniature olive trees to balance out the accent table behind our couch.

Last year I had a bit of an obsession with topiaries. I used them to create a greenery-filled accent table in my living room and dedicated a whole blog post to decorating with faux topiaries.

The other place I use faux greenery and branches throughout the year is in large floor baskets. I love the way they add color and texture to a nook or corner.

They even work out by our barn!

As you can see, I use faux greenery and flowers throughout my home to brighten up a room when fresh flowers are not available. I love how realistic they can look and the fact that they can be used repeatedly. Win-Win! I hope this gives you some ideas about how to decorate with faux flowers and greenery in these winter months to freshen up your house!
