There is almost nothing better than the smell of fresh flowers in your home. The aroma of a new bouquet of flowers in your dining room or kitchen is wonderful, but there are several reasons it isn’t practical either.
The cost of fresh flowers is very expensive. You will need to replace them often and many times the type of flower you want to decorate will be out of season or unavailable from your local florist. You also have to water them to and prune them in order for them to live as long as possible. Let’s face it, real flowers are difficult to have in your home on a regular basis. But there is an alternative …
You can decorate with artificial flowers. Don’t “poo poo” artificial flowers because there are several benefits to consider when it comes to decorating with them in your home:
The only thing you have to do to care for artificial flowers is to dust them on a regular basis. Other than that, they’re very easy to have in your home. You can place them in or out of sunlight and anywhere in your home you want to. You don’t have to water or prune them and you don’t have to wait for them to bloom.
Artificial flowers are just as beautiful as the day you bought them for the entire time you decorate your home with them.
You can buy a few artificial flowers for a few dollars that will last a lifetime. A new bouquet of fresh flowers can cost $10-20 and will only last about 7-10 days before they begin to wither and fade away. If you want flowers in your home every day, the cost of real ones will add up extremely fast, especially if you place them throughout multiple rooms in your home.
You might not know it, but artificial flowers are more eco-friendly than real flowers. This is because real flowers contain pesticides and fertilizers that are not good for the environment. Artificial flowers are made of silk and plastic and don’t need any chemicals to grow or maintain their colors.
These are just a few of the benefits of artificial flowers in your home.
You can treat yourself to real flowers from time to time (or maybe a special someone will treat you) but you should understand that the cost of displaying them in your home is both expensive and time-consuming.
