So I was telling a friend about my faux flowers and I think I was headed out to grab a few more and she asked me "Is that ok?". I was like what? Faux flowers? My response was somewhere along the lines of yeah if that's what you want! In my head I was wondering why she would ask such a thing. Like seriously, why wouldn't it be ok? Then I got to realizing, we as bloggers have put limitations on design and decor so much that people are literally starting to question themselves and what they like.
I love fresh flowers don't get me wrong, but I love them when they're fresh! I don't tend to them after the initial drop in the vase of water, but I still want them to look pretty next month lol (yes, the same bouquet). With faux flowers, I don't have to worry about that.
Now I am a bit picky about my choice of faux flowers. I only purchase the kind that are "real touch". Like they actually feel and look real. Well real enough to me. And I grab a few whenever they're on sale at Hobby Lobby.
I know that for some people who have started reading blogs that you value what we have to say and our opinions on what's right and what's wrong, but ultimately you are the one that have to live with your decision for your home. Even I had to take a step back and say whoa, I have to decorate for ME and MY family. Otherwise you'll have a space or spaces that really don't represent you, but people that you don't know who probably don't care one way or the other weather or not you purchase fresh flowers every week or not.
Think about peeps! At the end of the day, DO YOU!
But tell me, fresh or faux? :-)
