Faux Faux

I’ve been crushing on dried and faux flowers recently. Particularly, pampas grass. They look, contradiction, both soft and structured. And the texture is a beautiful contrast to delicate (seemingly in this case at least) flowers. I’ve been picturing a low vase or urn of floaty chocolate cosmos and big white roses on a coffee table. Dyed grasses in blush pinks and violet blues are also lovely. I want to piece them together in a whimsical romantic arrangement, maybe for a dinner party with friends, a la Mary Lennox or brrch.

Earlier this week I walked into Anthropologie to be greeted by tall buckets of dried foliage in deep reds and gold sprays and I was inspired to create this edit of dried and faux flowers with the vases to match. Enjoy!
