Today, I am sharing my best tips to create Fall floral arrangements, But first, here are ten different ways that you can use seasonal stems to decorate for Fall. Or, practically any season. You can shop all of our artificial stems in the shop, at From: Susie.
Ten Ways to Use Faux Seasonal Stems
- Create a wreath for the front door using a few favorite faux florals and greenery.
- Design a Fall floral arrangement using a real or faux pumpkin as a vase by carving off the top.
- Place faux stems or orbs into a hanging basket or tote. Then, layer onto architectural decor like a ladder.
- Wrap the bottom of stems in leather string. Then, hang upside down on a drying rack or hooks in the kitchen.
- Tuck stems into garland on the fireplace mantle, in the Christmas tree as filler or as a tree topper.
- Cut stems to add a fun detail at each place setting on your table. For example, tuck into tied napkins.
- Style the coffee table with books, a bowl of DIY faux acorns and a tall vase of seasonal stems. Find more coffee table styling tips, here.
- Flatten and frame real or faux leaves as art. We framed dried florals, here, with these metal frames.
- Place stems into a decorative vase, handmade pottery or wicker basket to style book shelves.
- Add individual stems to 6-10 glass bottles down the center of the dining table for a casual centerpiece.
Four Faux Floral Arrangement Tips
- For a full arrangement, include a variety of 3 different stems. For example, start with leafy stems to add texture. However, this may be seasonal grasses, like wheat or dried leaves for Fall or pine greenery for Winter. Then, add the focal flowers. Lastly, fill in with floral button, berry, or thistle style picks to add interest.

2. When arranging stems, cut or bend faux flowers at slightly different heights. Specifically, faux stems can be cut with wire cutters. Some artificial botanicals are even marked with notches to easily bend or cut the stem. Then, place taller stems near the center and shorter stems near the outside of the vase to create a dome shape. This will ensure the floral arrangement feels organic.
3. Keep it simple! Choose a simple, yet embellished stem, like our olive branch stems to display individually. You won’t believe what a statement one stem can often make in a room.
Simplicity is the ultimate sophistication.
4. Don’t be afraid to mix real and faux flowers. For instance, add dried or faux natural grasses to a vase of fresh flowers like dahlias for a beautiful Fall centerpiece.
5. Another clever hack when using faux florals is to add water to the clear glass vases. This will make stems appear lifelike to guests.
