To think, I used to make fun of people who used fake flowers....
I thought I'd share what i've been up to in the last month for my front porch. Since I'm a new mom and it's very difficult to find time to plant NEW real plants, I thought I'd try fake ones for color. (I am so ashamed that I ever picked on my neighbor for her fake hanging basket!!!) It started with two wall planters that I had a hard time growing much in, so I got a couple stalks from the dollar store and really liked the results.
So then I grabbed a ficus I couldn't find a home for and stuck it in a cracked pot I bought from lowes ages ago. Then I found these super bright pots on clearance at hobby lobby and used the rest of the dollar store flowers. I also grabbed a small column that had been sitting in the garage and sprayed it yellow for a plant stand. (I put dirt in the bottom of the pots instead of floral foam, because it's free and for weight)
Maybe it's cheesy...but it looks pretty from the road! :)
