I normally share a Thought-Full Thursday post on Thursdays, but I’m working on our Fall mantel this week, and I’ve got branches on the brain! 🙂
I thought I’d share a post about some of my favorite faux ones here today in case someone out there is looking for something similar. First, I’ll link to the “faux-liage”, then I’ll tell you why I like it.
Why I like it: The color and veining on the leaves looks very realistic. I also like the way the leaves fall. Some faux leaf stick out too straight, but these hang like they would in real life. And don’t even get me started on that cute pot.
Why I like it: It’s hard to find tall branches that look like the ones you’d clip outdoors. These are 39″ tall and have a really nice fluidity about them. I also like the sparseness of the leaf clusters. With something that tall (including the jug), you don’t necessarily always want a million leaves making it look top-heavy, or an arrangement you can’t see through.
Why I like it: Again, I like how tall it is, and that the branches aren’t loaded up with too many leaves. I also like the fact that you only need two stems to make an arrangement.
Why I like it: In my experience, it’s incredibly difficult to find a great-looking faux branch with Fall-colored leaves on it, but this one it fabulous. The leaves are such a pretty earthy-yellow, and I love a brown-colored branch. I especially love the way this one moves. Even the smaller branches that shoot off the main ones look so similar to how they look in nature.
I also found some pretty ones at Jo-ann Fabrics the other day, and I look forward to showing you those in my mantel post next Tuesday. Which reminds me, I’m hosting a Fall decorating series here on my blog Tuesday through Friday next week, and I’ve invited 4 of my favorite blogging friends to join me.

We’ll each be sharing different Fall-themed decorating idea posts, and I hope you’ll swing by to check them all out. There was a cool breeze here in Alabama today, and it made me so excited about the upcoming season! 😀
PS- If you’d like a sneak peek of the faux branches I’m using on our mantel, I’ll be sharing stories about it on Instagram later today. 😉
