Some people prefer artificial flowers because there is no special care to be taken with them except maybe a little dusting and they last for a very long time. Even though some of the artificial flowers today cost a lot of money it is worth it, because once you have purchased it you have it for a very long time. No worrying about watering or whether it needs pruning or needs soil, or whether you can get someone to water them while you get away for a weekend.

These days artificial flowers comes in all shapes and sizes, for instance you can get a very big palm tree or a lovely fern and place it in your living room and no one would be the wiser that it is not real. Palms don't have any scent and neither do ferns so you can rest assured that no one is going to try and smell the leaves, although they might touch it if they are curious enough to know whether it is real or not. You can also get lots of other arrangements to enhance the décor of your room, and also the ever changing themes of arrangements to suit the occasion.

Artificial flowers are also becoming very popular for weddings and funerals and some churches prefer to buy these as they are long lasting and do not need replacing every so often, as with fresh flowers, so in a way they are saving money. They can purchase flowers and arrangements for whatever the occasion and then put it in storage until another such occasion comes along, without the worry of buying new arrangements. Some people prefer to buy flowers on a one time basis and never have to worry about maintenance, they just place it where they want and go about their business.

Some people love fresh flowers but somehow they are unable to keep them alive after they have purchased them, no matter what they do the plants just seem to wither and die for no good reason and so they opt for the next best alternative which is to get artificial flowers. They are so realistic looking that it is very difficult at times for someone to tell whether they are real or made out of plastic or silk and so you might find your guests bending down to sniff at your flowers thinking that they are real, that is how good these flowers have become.
