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

Why Buy Artificial Flowers vs Real Flowers

Always in Season

Unlike real flowers that only bloom during certain seasons, faux florals are available year-round so it’s easier to find your favorites.

Low Maintenance

Artificial flowers brighten up rooms and remain fresh-looking, even without water or sunlight.


Faux flowers are more cost-effective over time because they will never wilt or fade.


Our flowers are handcrafted from polyester fabric, making them a safer choice for those allergic to pollen.

Versatile Decorating

Bendable stems and petals let you experiment with different styling techniques.
