Blooms for the holidays
Flowers have a lasting positive effect on moods. Studies have shown that they have an immediate impact on happiness and that people who receive flowers feel less depressed and less anxious.
Without a doubt, having these blooms around the house is a surefire way to bring much cheer to your living space, most especially this holiday season.
However, pretty and uplifting as they are, fresh flowers are not exactly the most cost-efficient decor. They don’t come cheap, they need utmost care and attention, and they will only last you a few days to less than a couple of weeks if you’re lucky.
However, not all of us are blessed with a green thumb. Some of us seem to have the touch of death whenever handling flowers and plants.
To answer these problems, consider getting faux flowers instead. Having these at home does not necessarily mean being tacky. You simply need to be discerning about your choices so that your synthetic bouquets will resemble the real thing.
Another advantage of getting artificial blooms as home decor is that they are low maintenance. You don’t have to worry whether you watered them too little or too much, or whether you forgot to replace their water. All you need to do is dust them from time to time to keep them clean and fresh-looking.
Substitute blossoms are also the way to go if you (or a family member) is allergic to pollen but you also want to surround yourself with pretty blooms. You can now stop worrying about spending the holidays sneezing and dealing with your runny nose because of your floral decor.
Wilcon Depot, the country’s one-stop shop for home improvement and construction supply needs, has a wide array of faux flowers that look so real even you will forget that they aren’t. You can choose from soft pink faux orchids for that classic and sophisticated look or vibrant red and yellow peonies to perk up a neutral room.
Various kinds of vases, jars and bottles in which you can store your blooms are available to complete your holiday setup. If flowers aren’t really your thing and you want a zen-like feel for your home, Wilcon also has a selection of bonsai trees.
