Eva Amurri shares her favorite faux plants and blooms

Unpopular Opinion: faux plants and blooms can sometimes be just as beautiful as the real thing. And they last longer, too! I’ve been a fan of indoor plants and flowers for as long as I can remember, and after entering my Motherhood Era, I’ve realized that “going faux” can be one of the most rewarding and cost-effective decisions. Do I still love fresh flowers? Of course, I do! But with strategically placed faux plants, trees, and flowers in my home, I can surround myself with beauty for a fraction of the price.

I once had a conversation with a very snobby Interior Designer who was mocking people who had fake plants in their homes. I told her it’s a matter of perspective and priorities. She asked what I meant. I said, “Well, right now my priority is keeping my kids alive and putting my energy into that. I don’t want to waste money on expensive plants I can’t keep alive, and I don’t want to give up “filling my home with flowers” because buying them fresh every week is too expensive. And, quite frankly, anybody who is judgmental about whether the plants in my house are real or fake is probably not somebody I want in my home. LOL. The conversation stuck with me, though, and it still makes me so happy every time I find a brand or website that is selling realistic looking faux plants. I’ve truly found that they make a HUGE difference in the vibe and style of my home. I use them proudly!

I get asked a lot about my favorite faux plants and blooms because I use them in every single room in our house. I thought today would be a great opportunity to share some of my favorites! One tip I have is to wait until you see the product in person before committing. Make sure any faux plants you order online are returnable. I’ve bought six-dollar faux plants from Target that looked so real it was uncanny, and I’ve ordered faux trees that were hundreds of dollars and looked like absolute trash in real life. It’s trial and error sometimes! Another tip is to top your potted plants with Faux moss! It gives the pot a finished, extra sleek look and makes the blooms look even more real.

Let me know if you have any other questions!

  1. Can faux plants be as aesthetically pleasing as real plants? Why or why not?
