I have a love-hate relationship with fake flowers.
I love their ease and the fact that I can’t kill them. I hate how some try to look real, though they are oh so obviously fake. It’s like their lying. Like orange tans. Or Splenda.
Mean, little, lying fake flowers.
But somewhere in between is a faux bloom sweet spot, where it’s like both the fake flower owner and viewer are in on the joke. Instead of pretending that the flower is real or just avoiding looking at it, we can appreciate it for what it is.
Obviously there’s a lot of internal dialogue that goes on with fake flowers.
So it’s because of all these reasons that I have a crush on these tissue paper flowers in particular.
See what I did over at The Em Dash.
