The most realistic blooms & greenery like those from Winward Home collections are hand-crafted to mimic the living flora that they represent. As such they deserve special attention! While the most common way to display faux flowers is in a vase, you shouldn’t feel obligated to stick to simply traditional contained faux flower displays.
As our list of four display ideas will show, the sky truly is the limit when it comes to choosing your method of displaying your high-end artificial flower arrangements. With that said, let’s now dive into four unique floral arranging tips that will be sure to add a touch of whimsy and class to your home decor.
1. Use an Old Trophy
Nothing provides a winning look as much as an old trophy! From patinated sterling silver to polished pewter and even brass, most trophies are made of high-end materials that provide the perfect accompaniment to your floral arrangement. Plus, they make a fantastic conversation piece – especially if they’re engraved with your accolades! Perhaps even more important is that from a design perspective, trophies generally are tall and fairly narrow, similar to a vase, making them visually and practically ideal for high-end faux flower arrangements.
2. Arrange in Ornate Ginger Jars
Ginger jars were originally used for storing and transporting spices in Ancient China, according to Simona Ganea in her piece for Homedit entitled “The Story Behind The Classic Beauty Of Ginger Jars”. And, while they normally come with a lid, you can easily remove that, leaving you with a beautiful, often ornate, piece of ceramic that has proportions similar to a vase. For a truly upscale, perhaps Maximalist look, try displaying your luxury faux flowers and greenery in a ginger jar.
3. Break Out Your Fine China
How often do we really use our fine china? Usually, only on special occasions. Instead of letting it collect dust in your china cabinet, why not break out your Lenox, Waterford, or Spode and put it to good use as an elegant base for your deluxe floral arrangements? Whether you’re arranging a tall floral arrangement in an elegant pitcher or carafe or a short arrangement to use as your Holiday table floral centerpiece, the options are endless.
4. Elevate Them But Leave Them Loose
As The Shabby Fufu notes in the blog post “5 Unique Ways To Display Flowers (On A Shelf)”, elevating faux flowers on a shelf or mantle but leaving them loose can be an incredibly beautiful way to display them as a focal point in a nontraditional way. Lending a lush, abundant, and fresh look and feel to a room, elevated loose flowers add an unexpected touch of class.
No matter what type of elegant faux florals you’re looking to display, from silk orchids to hand-painted greenery, you can elevate them in new and unexpected ways with a little creativity and some design know-how.
While we’ve outlined four ways to arrange your luxury faux blooms, there are so many other options out there that could work equally well, from using old pewter trophies to vintage painted pitchers. We wish you luck with your decorating effort!
