Faux flowers Vs Real flowers | Styled by The Home Stylist

Using Faux flowers rather than real will keep your flowers in Bloom

Say goodbye to wilted and withered blooms and hello to perfect imitation flowers. Summer has finally arrived in Hong Kong and with such vengeance. The scorching sun and soaring temperatures may be perfect for cold drinks and poolside chilling but are less than ideal for fresh cut flowers. The sizzling heat will make your delphiniums droop and your lilies lilt before your very eyes – that is if they even survive the journey home from the store. Why not instead switch to Amaranthine Blooms – artificial flowers so realistic that your friends will be dumbfounded as to how you keep your arrangements looking so sprightly in the summer heat. We’ve been partnering with Amaranthine Blooms for a number of years as they really help us to add the finishing touches to the homes we style and stage. Simply put, why buy fresh when fake is so much better? We have stopped counting the number of times people tell us “I can’t believe they’re not real!” and aside from the obvious benefit that the blooms last MUCH longer than fresh flowers (at least 3 years, instead of 3 days) they never show signs of wilting or sit neglected in a corner giving off a nasty odour and making you wish you had thrown them away sooner! Rather than needing to prune or wash them, their flowers need little maintenance (maybe the occasional clean if you’re particular); and if you suffer from the sniffles in spring or summer, rest assured that not an ounce of pollen will bother you from our luxury artificial flowers. What’s more, most of their blooms come with wired stems meaning that you can create new designs and bouquet combinations whenever you feel the need for a change. Don’t get us wrong, we love fresh flowers. We dream of galloping wildly through fields of blossom and lavender and adore the sweet scents of light pink roses at the bottom of the garden, but in such a hot climate, there is simply no question that investing in excellent quality artificial flowers makes far more sense than trekking to the flower stall every day. If you’re unsure where to start when choosing your artificial flowers, check out their gifts under $500, where you will find an array of stunning flowers to choose from. Perhaps a white Casablanca lily bouquet or some deep blue hydrangeas. Discover your own unique style by selecting a vase that you love and design your blooms to suit your décor. Personally, I love my single stem pale pink roses in our entrance hallway and my beautiful tulip bouquets in the dining area. Take a look for yourself at www.amaranthineblooms.com
