Block and Chisel: A Waterwise Valentine’s Day

The month of love is a time to turn to nature as an expression of our affection. It may take the form of a bunch of beautiful lilies, a pot of vibrant orchids, or even a lush green fern. As the drought continues to affect many areas around the country, we look at a waterwise way to continue this tradition using beautifully crafted faux foliage.

Greenery is an important aspect of any decor setting, bringing a sense of freshness and calm. And what better way to achieve this than with pieces that need only the occasional dusting? High quality faux plants and flowers are carefully selected by Block & Chisel’s buyer, Susan McAdam and her team for their life-like qualities. Some indigenous artificial plants you’ll find in store include agapanthus and aloes in full flower, lush strelitzia leaves and various mini succulents, all incredibly life-like. A cluster of tulips that you would never say is artificial would be a perfect addition to offer cheer, while the ever-popular orchids offer up a fountain of petals. Not only will you find faux plants for every occasion, pay Block & Chisel’s stores a visit to select the right vessel for them, be it a zinc planter reminiscent of the south of France, a woven basket or a smooth concrete container. This Valentine’s Day let your proclamation of love be one that not only requires zero water, but one that truly never dies.
