In this week’s mini, we chat about faux plants!
-We start off with a case for real plants—we LOVE real plants. However, there is a time and a place for faux and this episode is all about that!
-Elsie’s faux plant rule is that if I kill a plant two times (so, two plants) in a certain area or corner of my home, then I will replace it with a faux plant. There are sometimes just areas in the home where plants don’t thrive.
What to avoid:
-bad cacti with rubber “claws” for spines. (here’s an example of a really bad one!)
-putting fake plants outdoors because they fade FAST and that is very sad.
You can shop our favorite faux plants here:
This is our exterior! Imagine it all white, because pretty soon it will be! Now, what do you think we should put into that built-in flower box across the front??
Other faux alternatives (faux flowers, dried flowers, sun palms):
Here’s a link to the dried flower press.
If you have any questions about plants (or anything!), you can send them to us here: Podcast AT A Beautiful Mess DOT com
Love you! Elsie + Emma
