In response to the HGTV special about decorating mistakes, the worst of all (according to them) being fake flowers and plants, The Nester is asking us to show our fake plants, good, bad, and in between.
As I said yesterday, I am not good with live plants. Even though fake plants do get dusty (and I do wipe them off now and then), they last a lot longer than real ones do, and they add a welcome bit of color and cheeriness. The HGTV team recommends fruit (but a jar or plate of lemons or whatever just doesn’t do anything for my decorating sensibilities. Nothing wrong with that as decorations — I just don’t like them personally) or dried materials (which also gather dust and decompose after a while), so I will stay with my pretty fake flowers, as long as they look nice and aren’t frayed, thank you very much. 🙂
Here are a few of my “fakes”:
I haven’t decorated for fall yet, but these are around my house most of the time, except for fall and Christmas.
(You know what’s really odd…my blog stats show this post has received 126 viewings so far, but there are only 10 comments at present. I wonder if the other 116 disagree? Or hate my arrangements but are too kind to say so? I guess I’ll never know…
BTW, it’s ok to disagree [kindly]. That’s what makes all of our styles uniquely our own. 🙂 )
