The initial expense of real flowers can seem quite off-putting when prices can go all the way up into their hundreds.
However, artificial flowers can be bought for as little as £5-£10 and can continue to be added to as your collection grows. So if your loved ones cherish flowers but hate seeing them deteriorate, why not look into purchasing artificial flowers instead?
It can be quite a monotonous task spending time looking after real flowers to keep them alive. Fresh flowers continually need to have stems trimmed, water change and maintained on a regular basis to improve their longevity, as the majority of flowers can only really live for a couple of weeks. Artificial flowers are much different, they require minimal maintenance, can live as long as you want them to, and you won’t have to worry about them getting thirsty.
Moreover, when opting for artificial flowers, you must look for more than just colourful decor. It’s vital to select high-quality flowers that won’t degrade and will look as good as new 6 to 12 months down the line. If you have a budget, it may just be worthwhile to invest in artificial flowers as they will last years, as long as they are properly cared for.
The Outdoor Look sells an array of stemmed flowers and bouquets that can be bought in an array of different colours, designs and bunches to suit your living space. What’s more, is that these flowers won’t cause harm to pets or cause any sniffly noses as they’re fake and won’t be problematic.
Another great thing about their artificial flower range is that with many things in life, it depends on how much you want to spend to really see the quality of products. At The Outdoor Look, you really do get great quality with what you spend and they look so real. But don’t take our word for it here are a few of our favourites:
The Cherry Blossom Bouquet is a stunning arrangement, created with cherry blossoms, red delphiniums, chrysanthemums, foliage stems which are held within a clear vase. These make for a gorgeous birthday or anniversary gift to bring a pop of colour to any room.
The Magnolia Surprise is a lovely bouquet that would look perfect in a minimalistic home or workspace. This arrangement can really bring to life any entrance hall (or even used when walking into your wedding!) as it is created with cream magnolias, lacey leaf sprays, gold shimmer jewel leaf foliage and a lacey bush spray, which are held together in a beautiful clear vase.
Alternatively, if you’re not one for bouquets, they also sell stemmed flowers that look like the real thing but last much longer. The Anna Cymbidium Orchid stands 88cm tall and offers the most intricate detailing to leave a lasting impression on your guests.
So if you’re not already converted by the gorgeous range or just artificial flowers in themselves, you’ll be sure to want to switch over after checking out their website. The realistic blooms will almost certainly want to get faking it.
