Do you fake it??

"Artificial arrangements are finding their way into the most chic of homes, with high-end design company OKA — run by Samantha Cameron’s mother, Annabel Astor — seeing sales of its range soar by 89 per cent over the past year.

Meanwhile, Sainsbury’s has launched a line by celebrity florist Jane Packer, whose clients include Kate Moss and Givenchy. We asked high-society interior designer and etiquette expert Nicky Haslam (above) — who has designed the homes of celebrities and royalty — to see if the latest fake flowers pass muster.

So which are the best of the new bunch? And with prices from £5 to £500, how much bouquet do you get for your buck?"



I love silk flowers and used to make displays up and sell them...they were popular.
I like to mix silk and fresh flowers for a lovely centre table display.

The price of some false flowers sell at is astronomical.....do you fake it... or do you insist your flowers are real??

I like fresh flowers but I am a lover of artificial plants too.

I don't like large displays of silk flowers as they can look a bit old for me. I particularly like wood, big branches of willow and bamboo etc

That's beautiful Syl! And it doesn't look fogey or fake.

It's the wrong way up for me though.

To be honest I think my iPad is upside down, but it doesn't matter until you take pics.
It only happens on here though.
