How to use faux flowers successfully.

I like nothing better than real flowers.  This is my time of year with all the fresh blooms and buds.  With that being said, it can be really hard and expensive to have fresh flowers around your home year round.  What I like to do is use as many fresh and real stems as possible but incorporate faux stems into the mix. I don't mix together in the same arrangement, but in separate containers.   I feel that when you mix it up, it's hard to tell which are the real deal and which are fake.

Here are a few area's that I've mixed.  See if you can tell the real from the faux. 

Here I have a mix of lavender, magnolia, tulips and button bush.  Unless you are making an up close inspection, you really can't tell the tulips are faux.
