October Momma Like: Faux Flora
I'm not a big fan of the houseplant - fake or real I seem to always get it wrong. That said, who can resist a beautiful freshly cut vase of flowers? Someone on a budget - that's who. At a friend's house recently I was gaping in jealousy at her peonies when she revealed that they were not real but from Gump's San Francisco. Many of the flowers on the site were beautiful but not great on the budget - but these Japenese Maple branches come in at $18 each and can be paired with a flea market clay pitcher for great fall effect. Of course, if you have a beautiful Japenese maple or bittersweet bush, you can do it for even less.
