Silk Plants Are A Bloggers Best Friend


                                      A beautiful silk plant has many uses for this blogger.


   I love my new silk Areca Palm Tree and it looks so real. The best part is that I do not have to water it. I am not a plant person and I tend to kill plants. I either over water my plants or forget about them. That is one reason why I have drought resistant plants outside. I have tried many times to grow other plants either indoors or outside and have not succeeded. So I love that I can have silk plants that look so real! My favorite plants are tropical plants but I live in the desert so I can not have the real thing inside my house as they will not survive. So when I saw this palm tree, I just knew that I had to have this beautiful plant.

This plant looks great outside my house. It is the perfect size to place by my front door. I love that it comes in a pot but I can "replant" it to another pot if I want. The palm tree gives my front door a tropical touch. This plant would also look great in my backyard. 

I received a silk palm tree to facilitate this post.

 I added some rocks to my tree to give it a special touch as I did not care for the green moss look of the base of the tree.


 The size of the palm tree is perfect to bring indoors too. Now that winter is on its way, I can enjoy my tropical paradise plant inside. This plant is also great for taking photos. I like to include plants in the background of my photos so I tend to take a lot of my product photos outside. Now that the weather is cooler, I am not able to take those plant photos. So I love that I can use this palm tree in my photos. As you can see in the below photo, this is one of my backgrounds that I use to take photos. This silk tropical palm is perfect for my set-up. The next photo shows how the tree gives my photo a perfect amount of green to make the other items stand out.


This is my close-up shot of the palm tree and it looks so real in my photo.


For now, this wonderful maintenance-free palm tree will add a wonderful touch to my living room/workspace. When I need it for photos, it is light enough for me to move. Once the weather warms up, I may move the palm tree outdoors. I think it would look great in my patio area. I may just have to order some more silk plants.


Here is a photo that shows more of the room that my tree is in. Please excuse the mess as this is also my office. This palm tree brightens up my dull living room. Since this room is at the back of the house it does not get much light and a real plant would never survive. I just love that I don't have to remember to water this plant! 

I received this plant from http://www.museumtrees.com/ and I love their selection of silk plants. This place is a great place to order maintenance-free plants from. They also carry flowers, containers, home decor, and so much more. I have a wish list of plants that I shared with my husband so he knows what to get me for Christmas and my birthday.
