However, if you don't have access to fresh flowers either through location or because of the cost (and let's face it, unless you grow your own, fresh flowers are pricey); or if you simply don't have the time or inclination to arrange your own then these are a great alternative.
If you fancy yourself as a bit of a florist then you can use single foliage stems to fortify a fresh flower display.
Faux can be instantly stylish as and when you need them; available in displays of naturalistic or colour-popping hues.
You can keep it seasonal in a revolving set of displays or enjoy your favourite flower all year round.
If you miss the fragrance of fresh there are a million home scents to choose from in the form of candles or diffusers (let's keep that for another time).
