Everyone loves a pretty flower – and right now we’ve fallen hard for their less au naturel (but equally aesthetically pleasing) counterpart – the fake flower. These beauties are so pleasingly low-maintenance they’ll refuse to wilt even if it’s 40°C and your foundation has melted onto your dress. And you can forget all that watering and stem-cutting business. Yep, faking it is the easiest way to get flowers doingwhat they do best – sitting pretty. We’re loving wedding supply specialists Koch & Co, who stock an amazing range of fake blooms that look seriously gorgeous when styled as centrepieces. Keep scrolling to check out 10 fake flower table centrepieces that will look like they’ve jumped straight off Pinterest and into your wedding.
