How to Style Faux Greenery

There is nothing quite like the real thing. However, if you suffer from allergies, want something low maintenance, or have low light rooms that need a constant fresh touch then faux greenery is a great option! We've scoured all over to find the best faux greenery for McGee & Co. Today, we'll be giving you a few tips and trips on how to style and shape your greenery for a beautiful arrangement!

You don't want your vase to overwhelm your greenery or your greenery to overwhelm your vase. Always make sure to fill your vase with enough greenery, so it looks full. Leave breathing room and white space by not overfilling your vessel.

Just like you'd do in a natural floral arrangement, make sure your greenery is hitting at different heights for a natural, balanced look.
