How real can an artificial flower arrangement look? Which artificial flowers look the most realistic? The answer to these questions depends upon several factors. We have previously dispelled 5 Fake Flower Myths and hopefully persuaded you to give artificial a try, now we are going to show you how to choose faux blooms that are guaranteed to fool everyone!

 

1. Florals Decorated with Natural Colours

The right colours will make a high quality faux flower look even more realistic – just like you plucked it straight from the garden! Classic, natural colours are always a hit when it comes to artificial flowers because they make the blooms look that much more believable.

A great example of a colour combo that never fails to impress is green and white. These colours are found throughout nature, so when you see a faux floral arrangement that features these hues, you don’t think twice about its authenticity. On the other hand, choosing colours like hot pink or black are likely to make your flowers look obviously fake. Just remember: if it isn’t in nature, it shouldn’t be in your faux bouquet either.  

Choosing flowers that display colours true to nature is a great tip, it’s also a good idea to look for petals that are tonal rather than flat. The flatter the colour, the more artificial the faux bloom will look. Purchasing from the right designers will ensure that the colours are hand-painted, using precision and attention to detail. You will notice subtleties in the design, and perhaps even some imperfections that all make a fake bloom look real.

 

2. Choose Native Flowers

Now you know that choosing the right colours and the right designer will make your artificial Blooms look real, let’s now take a look at the types of artificial flowers because some look more realistic than others.

Native flowers, such as roses and magnolia, are extremely popular choices because they are so realistic. This is thanks to the fabrics used and the techniques employed to create these beautiful blooms. They look so incredibly lifelike because they are made with materials that mimic the velvety petals that these flowers naturally have. You might even find your friends sniffing them because they will look so real. Now that’s a sign that you have a great faux flower!

Some other, good natural looking options include:

3. Don’t Forget Foliage!

To ensure your arrangement looks absolutely convincing, you do not have to limit yourself to artificial flowers, why not add artificial foliage too?  A bouquet that contains foliage will be fuller and more natural looking than one that only contains blooms. Plus, the added pop of green will contrast perfectly with the colourful flowers in any display.

Not sure about adding faux foliage? Not a problem, choose your artificial flowers and then enhance their beauty by adding fresh foliage from your garden. This will really trick even the most trained eye because the foliage will obviously be real, but the highest quality faux blooms will blend in perfectly and look just as natural!
