  1. Consider the Plant's Aesthetic: Before selecting a pot or crock for your fake plant, consider the plant's aesthetic and overall vibe. Is it a short textured fake succculant plant? Try a matte vase that is round and full to match the shape of the bush.

  2. Embrace Contrast: While matching the style of the pot or crock to the plant is important, don't be afraid to embrace contrast for visual interest. For example, pair winter greenery with a minimalist glossy cream pot. Similarly, a rustic terracotta crock can add warmth and texture to a modern artificial plant arrangement.

  3. Pay Attention to Proportions: The size and scale of the pot or crock should complement the size of the fake plant to create a balanced look. A large, statement-making plant may require a substantial container to anchor it visually, while smaller plants can be showcased in more petite pots or grouped together for impact. Aim for proportions that feel harmonious and proportionate to the space.

  4. Coordinate with Your Décor: Consider the existing décor style and color palette of your space when selecting pots and crocks for your fake plants. Choose containers that complement the overall aesthetic, whether it's sleek and contemporary, bohemian and eclectic, or rustic and farmhouse-inspired. Matching the colors and materials of the pots to other elements in the room can tie the look together seamlessly. If you have a favorite pot you already are using in your decor, simply drop a fake bush in to enhance the look without ruining the pot.

  5. Try a Drop-In: What's a drop-in you say? A drop-in is a fake plant that comes in a plastic pot with dirt that just needs to be dropped in a decorative pot or crock, and it will look like a greenhouse plant. Drop-ins can also be without the pot, just the fake dirt and plant.

From using your own favorite planter, antique pot or artisan vessel, adding a fake plant or bush is a simple way to elevate your space and décor. So go ahead, unleash your creativity, and transform your space into a lush oasis of botanical beauty!
