As delighted as I always am when someone gives me a gorgeous bouquet of ranunculus, or daisies, or tea roses, my joy is always tinged with the tiniest bit of sadness.
It isn’t that I don’t appreciate the gift — because I definitely do (note to S.O.: Peonies are still my favorite, thanks!). It’s more that I can’t seem to stop my mind from time-traveling a few days into the future when my bouquet’s beautiful blooms begin to fade.
And that’s precisely why I love the new breed of faux flower blooms so much. These hyper-realistic pretenders look just like real orchids sprays or magnolia blooms, but with one distinct advantage: They won’t die on me.
You definitely don’t need to splurge to get a look that's impressive, either. More than 100 four-star reviews on the bundle of peony blooms ahead suggests that trompe-l’oeil trickery is just as doable for under $12 — shipping included.
Ahead, 15 gorgeous faux flower arrangements that'll spark just as much joy in a year as they will tomorrow.
