Trend Alert: Artificial Plants for Your Patio

by - 21:34:00

Whether it’s a hanging planter filled with faux geranium foliage, or succulent centerpieces on your patio table, decorating with artificial plants outdoors is a big trend this season. I jumped on this trend during my One Room Challenge reveal last week, all the plants on my patio are artificial - can you believe it? Today, in partnership with Décors Veronneau, I’m excited to share a few ways you can incorporate faux plants into your outdoor space.

Consider using a privacy fence panels, covered in artificial foliage to create the perfect privacy screen! These trellises can be installed right on your fence, or even on an outdoor banister. Since they’re expandable, you can adjust their size to your needs. Growing your own living wall or privacy ivy could prove to be challenging but this fence panel is the perfect alternative to get the look without the maintenance. In my space, I used this fence panel to add texture and greenery to the walls of my patio and adorned it with a few empty frames.

Hanging arrangements are another great way to incorporate artificial greenery into your outdoor space. Often real hanging plants can be finicky and can get scorched by the sun. Faux hanging arrangements are the perfect alternative, all the beauty without the stress. Pro tip:  weave some twinkle lights through the artificial hanging plants to create a cozy, romantic atmosphere.

Lastly, using faux arrangements on your table is a great way to have greenery outside without the insects that may be attracted to the real thing. Perhaps a succulent centerpiece or something more colourful, the possibilities are endless. And while real outdoor plants usually require a lot of nurturing, artificial plants only need a bit of sunblock spray to keep them looking like new all season long.

Adding the finishing touches to your outdoor decor with outdoor artificial plants is sure to be a hit this season and for years to come!
