Modern artificial flowers are now more popular due to their realism, variety, and longevity. Here at Balsam Hill, we offer a wide range of artificial florals, from arrangements to matching wreaths and garlands. This buying guide shows you everything you need to know when buying permanent blooms for your space.

Why Buy Artificial Flowers VS Real Flowers

1. ALWAYS IN SEASON

Unlike real flowers that only bloom during certain seasons, artificial flowers are available year-round. It's easier to find your favorites even if they're not in season. You can also display your favorite flowers at home, even if their fresh counterparts don't grow in your location.

2. LOW MAINTENANCE

Artificial blooms brighten up rooms and remain fresh-looking, even without water or sunlight. You'll spend less time and effort tending to your décor.

3. LONG-LASTING

Artificial flowers are more cost-effective over time because they don't wilt nor fade. To keep them vibrant, avoid prolonged exposure to the sun and harsh weather.

4. POLLEN-FREE

Our artificial florals are crafted from polyester fabric, making them a safer choice for those allergic to pollen. Polyester fabric is commonly used to produce the most high-quality artificial flowers as it has a similar texture to real ones.

5. VERSATILE DECORATING

Find decorative flowers that match your home décor theme. From minimalist Scandinavian to modern farmhouse, you'll find floral accents that will elevate your interior or exterior design.
