I love plants and flowers. I think they add a lot of beauty and “life” to any home. Sadly, we have six cats, so we need to be extra careful what we bring into our home (some plants and flowers are toxic to cats). I even put flowers my husband brings home for me high on the pantry (far out of reach of from the cats) at night and when we are not home. I hate to do it, but I don’t want to take any chances.
Over the years I have tried to have cat-friendly plants and flowers in our home, but I can never keep them alive. I certainly do NOT have a “green thumb.” It’s as if I’m a plant/flower killer. Sigh…
Just because I can’t keep life plants and flowers in our home doesn’t mean that I don’t enjoy the look of them.
Over the years I have purchase many fake plants and flower to decorate our home. I can tell you from experience that not all fake plants and flowers look alike. Some are clearly fake where as others are so realistic looking that you would swear that they are the real thing.
Back in October, I did a review for a pretty Christmas tree (pictured above) that I received from the brand Nearly Natural. If you are interested in reading that review, you can find it here – A Holiday Tree for Year Round. I actually haven’t started to decorate it for the various seasons – yet! I am still planning on it. Things have just been a bit crazy lately that I haven’t really had a chance to look for ornaments for Valentine’s Day. I am hoping to find some Easter ornaments in the near future.
Nearly Natural was kind enough to send me another product to review, and I must say, I am blown away by it!
I received to review their Rose Arrangement with a Vase. I cannot think of a more perfect gift for Valentine’s Day (Mother’s Day and other occasions).
Roses are the #1 flower that is given out on Valentine’s Day. Roses are VERY expensive (especially arrangements) and sadly, they don’t last that long. As much as I love roses, I think it’s a waste of money to buy them because they don’t last long enough for what your pay for them. It’s such a shame too because I love the look of roses. They are such a “classic” looking flower.
The rose arrangement I received from Nearly Natural features a bouquet of roses in a pretty glass vase. To make the look even nicer, the vase looks like it has “water” inside of it. The look of water really adds to the realism of the bouquet.
This particular bouquet that I received to review is available in different colors, from golden yellow to dark red, and from vintage white to pink – even a colorful assortment. I received the colorful assortment to review.
The bouquet I received has various pink colored flowers and some classic white ones.
I was shocked at how realistic looking this arrangement looks. I have to do a “double take” every time I walk past it.
I keep the arrangement on our television stand so I can enjoy it while my family and I watch television in the evening.
The arrangement arrived “safe and sound.” It was very well packaged so that it could handle all the “bumps” during transit.
As soon as I unwrapped the arrangement it was ready to enjoy. I did spread out the flowers a little bit because they were close together due to the packaging. All I did was spread out a few of them so they looked even more realistic (a real arrangement wouldn’t have the flowers too close together).
I am “over the moon” in love with these flowers. So much so that I have several of them bookmarked that I would like to eventually purchase to decorate around my home.
The best part about these flowers is that they will look forever beautiful. You won’t have to worry about brown spots, decay, falling petals or anything else that causes the flowers to be tossed in the garbage.
If COVID wasn’t a thing I would love for my neighbor to see them. He has a “green thumb” and grows the most beautiful flowers. I bet even he would be impressed by the realism of the Nearly Natural flower arrangement.
Nearly Natural not only has floral arrangements, they also carry artificial plants, trees, planters, wreaths and more.
If you are looking to decorate your home for Easter, be sure to check out their lovely Easter arrangements and wreaths. Best of all – ALL of their plants and flowers look real!
If you are planning on gifting someone a bouquet of roses for Valentine’s Day, consider gifting a bouquet of Nearly Natural roses. They will last years after Valentine’s Day is over, which means the recipient will be able to enjoy your gift day after day. For example, check out this Blooming Roses with Vase arrangement available on the Nearly Natural website. Look how incredibly realistic it looks!
There is even “water” in the bottom of the vase to add to the realism.
