Are you the type of homeowner who can’t even keep a cactus alive? Then you may want to consider using faux plants instead. You might be surprised that the former baduy plastic-looking plant has become so incredibly realistic; you won’t be able to tell the difference from the real thing! Here are the stores that sell good-quality artificial blooms and plants:
1. Designer Blooms
You can’t even tell their waxed leaves from the real thing; and their hydrangeas and orchids are amazingly realistic. Their Sucat warehouse/store is literally blooming with faux plants, accessories, Christmas trees, and more, and they also style for events. Want to dine in blooms? Drop by the charming Designer Blooms Cafe at Molito Lifestyle Center in Alabang.
With branches at UP Town Center, SM Megamall, and Alabang Town Center; or click on their website for a complete list of branches
2. Rustan’s Flower Shop
Rustan’s has been the go-to place for the most romantic Valentines and Mother’s Day bouquets, but the shop within Rustan’s Department Stores also sells exceptionally lovely faux flowers, pots, accessories, and candles. What we love the best about Rustan’s Flower Shop is that their customer service is always A-plus.
At Rustan’s Ayala Center and Shangri-la Plaza, or follow them on Facebook
3. Pottery Barn
Visit their BGC showroom and you’ll be bowled over by their exuberantly styled tabletops filled with faux peonies, tropical flowers, and more. This Christmas season, check out their Holiday Faux Botanicals, with their realistic potted Christmas trees, which are perfect for condo homes.
Central Square,Bonifacio High Street; Estancua Mall, Capitol Commons, Pasig City
4. Our Home
If you don’t have the time to arrange your faux plants, then get a faux terrarium garden instead. Our Home has a wide selection of artificial plants in stylish terrariums, big or small, that are fixed and ready to set on top of your coffee table.
Visit their website for a complete list of branches
5. Crate and Barrel
Are you in search of delicate, so-fresh-looking-it’s-amazing blooms? Then head to Crate and Barrel, and go for their faux lilies, peonies, and sprigs of small fruit. And since it’s almost the holidays, don’t miss out on their beautifully designed Christmas décor.
At SM Megamall and at SM Makati
6. H&M Home
Looking for faux potted plants that could fit into the tiniest condo studio? Then head over to H&M Home for trendy succulents, realistic herbs, and fake grass that could be tucked into your small homes.
At SM Makati and Robinsons Magnolia
If you think that Divisoria only sells poor-quality blooms, then you are wrong. Head to Cherry Berry Flower Shop for well-crafted artificial blooms like Holland tulips, peonies, gerbera daisies, balete trees, and individual potted plants. The prices are friendly, too!
