Faux flowers are an amazing accessory that anyone can use to bring some greenery and life into their homes, people have been using silk to craft artificial flowers for about 1,500 years. From small succulents to large plants, there are many ways they can be used to make your home appear fuller, fresher and brighter. We take a look at some of the benefits of having faux flowers in your home.
1. Faux Flowers Are Long Lasting
Fake flowers, whether that’s a plant, stem, spray or shrub will never wilt or droop and will look realistic and lovely for years to come. They are extremely long-lasting so you can enjoy them without any added stresses.
2. Hypoallergenic Flowers
Artificial flowers are perfect if you suffer from hay fever or have any other health problems that are triggered by pollen or fragrances. You won't have to worry about any guests who might have allergies too and can enjoy your flower arrangements or plants without the restrictions.
3. No Maintenance
One of the main reasons we love artificial flowers is because you don’t have to worry about maintaining them, from watering daily to potting them on, you can sit back and relax. They might collect dust from time to time, but cleaning Sophie Allport's artificial flowers is easy, just wipe clean with a dry cloth.
4. Seasonal Flowers Available All Year Round
If you love peonies then you’ll know you only have a short late spring to early summer window, but with these artificial flowers, you’ll be able to enjoy your favourite blooms all year round. From our garden tulips to white garden roses, we have plenty of stems, sprays and foliage for you to create your favourite flower arrangements that last. You can even mix them up each week or month to create a new look for your home.

5. Re-purpose Your Wedding Flowers In Your Home
If you are looking for wedding flowers, then faux flowers are a great choice as they look realistic and will last for years to come, something you can really treasure. You can re-purpose them to create a special artificial flower arrangement from your bouquet to take centre stage in your entrance hallway, that way every time you come home you’ll be reminded of your special day.
6. Be Creative With Your Florals
We love the fact that you can mix up your florals at any time with artificial flower stems and sprays. If you’re wanting to swap your roses for peonies, then you absolutely can and I’m sure you can find another place or use for your artificial roses, perhaps use them on a table setting or hang around a door frame to create a lovely rose archway.
7. Pet-Friendly Flowers
If you’re a dog or cat owner then you probably know that there are some plants and flowers that are extremely toxic to your beloved pets, which is why artificial flowers can be a great alternative. They still look real, but you can rest assured knowing they won’t harm your furry friends
