Does anyone have a good website for good, realistic looking fake flowers? I've had a look in dunelm and the local garden centres but they look a bit naff and aren't that cheap.

I can't spend £££ but would like them to be as realistic as possible!

Peony faux flowers are lovely, I’ve attached a photo of one of the arrangements I have. They’re not really cheap but QVC sell them and sometimes offer payments in instalments.

ikea

I have some from Sarah Raven. But they are more foliage. Very realistic though!

Bloom uk are lovely, but they are not cheap.

I've got a surprisingly realistic orchid from Ikea - so realistic in fact that dh hasn't noticed it is not real yet! Not normally a fan of fake flowers, but this one is great.

I bought some fake white peonies from Amazon which I'm quite pleased with. Think they were under £10 for 5 large peonies, on Prime.

Oh Chester the peony faux flowers are gorgeous!
Will check the other suggestions out now - thanks all 😊

Wow to the Bloom ones 😲 - gorgeous though

Must they be flowers? I have one set of fake flowers that I like, but many fake succulents that DH hasn't noticed are fake yet. He's even been shooing the cats away from them.

I hadn't thought tbh Gummy. I'm the worlds least green fingered person ever so I think as long as not real id try anything!

It's easier to find realistic fake succulents than flowers!

Neptune if you have one near you, or the Cox and Cox website.

Tk maxx often have nice ones.

DS has ASD and hates flowers. I’ve gone for some very unrealistic ones in the kitchen.

Ikea. We have a bunch of fake ivy / pot plants / bamboo plus some flowers from there because I am spectacularly good at killing real plants.

I'd definitely suggest going for a look if there's one near you, I think it is much harder to judge the appearance online than in person. Most of the Ikea plants I have were about £6-10 each.

I live in the arse end of nowhere 😂
I'm about 6hrs away from an IKEA and 1 1/2hr from TK maxx.

I'll need to have a look the next time I'm near civilisation!

I'm relatively new to the whole home decor thing and am really enjoying it!

Sainsburys do lovely ones,

HolyShmoly Mon 26-Feb-18 21:11:12

I like Country Baskets. I do prefer to see and touch them IRL though to get a better idea, but I appreciate that might not be possible.

bilbodog Tue 27-Feb-18 13:27:22

Oka direct do some

M and s have a new range out. They come in a vase included in the price. Not cheap, but a lovely selection. There are 20% off codes valid on home stuff from tomorrow.

Neptune!

Agree that Sainsbury's are good, and reasonably priced.

extinctspecies Wed 28-Feb-18 18:16:31

I saw some surprisingly nice ones in Sainsbury's today. Advertised as hyacinths but I thought they were more hydrangea like. In a glass bottle.

A couple of nice ones (tkmaxx has some really good ones) and a few real twigs like curly willows or birch will blend the lines between fake and real and nobody would know.
