The days might still be sunny and warm, but if you’re like me, you’re already craving the cozy embrace of Fall.

1. Less is More: Opt for Branches and Trimmings
When it comes to faux greenery, the key is to avoid going overboard with an abundance of flowers. Just as I prefer using branches and trimmings to liven up my home, I apply the same principle to artificial plants. There’s something incredibly charming about bringing in a freshly clipped branch from the garden, but those fade after a couple days. I’ve found that choosing faux plants with lifelike branches and leaves replicates this natural aesthetic and gives us something eternal! Stick to a few carefully selected pieces that mimic the real plants you’d use, and you’ll instantly add an authentic touch of fall to your space.
2. Go Big or Go Home: Embrace Abundance
I used to send my husband Jack out to grab clippings and he’d come back with a few trimmings. However, over time, he’s come to understand that achieving the look I want requires a generous handful of stems. This practice holds true for both real and faux arrangements. The secret to creating a lush, dramatic display is to use an ample number of stems in a single vase. This abundance not only fills up the space but also lends a more opulent and vibrant vibe. So, if you’re aiming for that full Fall look, don’t hold back on the stems!
3. Embrace Change: Rotate and Refresh
Nature has a way of changing with the seasons, and your faux greenery should do the same. To keep things fresh and exciting throughout the fall season, don’t hesitate to switch out your faux stems and change their positions. Experiment with various arrangements, add or remove seasonally appropriate stems, and play around with different vases. This approach ensures that your decor stays dynamic and captivating, just like the shifting scenery outdoors.
