If you’ve ever walked the halls of Homegoods, fake flowers are everywhere. But to me, they look fake.I wanted fake flowers that look real in vase. So real I wanted artificial real touch flowers – ones that even felt real when you touched them (because who doesn’t walk up to an orchid plant and touch them to see if they are real? I do since they are ridiculously hard to keep alive.)
Enter Afloral. They are a company that specialize in high end silk floral arrangements. They sell everything from plastic to artificial real touch flowers for your treasured moments. Whether it’s a bouquet for your wedding so that you can keep it forever (genius!), flower arrangements for your home or an event floral decor. Whatever your needs, Afloral has the most gorgeous selection to make your flower dreams come true.
Afloral allowed me to choose some to experiment with. Given my picky background with flowers I had to see for myself if fake flowers that look real in vase would look high end enough for my vision. I – was – floored. The touch of these real touch flowers is beyond amazing! Someone was in my house when I was creating my centerpiece and she touched them too and she couldn’t believe it! The softness of the rose petals! The velvety feel of the Lambs Ear! It’s really amazing what a high quality artificial flower can feel and look like. I’m sold
