Early Spring Styled Tray with Beautiful Faux Greenery

Early Spring Styled Tray Ideas How to decorate with faux greenery and plants


Hello friends! Today I am happy to show you how I have added some early spring vibes to our home using beautiful faux greenery and plants. Since the end of February I have been transitioning my decor from winter to spring using natural and rustic elements and beautiful faux greenery for March. Even though I love all the bright colors of Easter and mid-late spring, I am just not quite ready for all of the busy-ness of color and Easter trinkets just yet. Green is my favorite color, so I always enjoy using lots of green in my decor, especially in March. *This post contains affiliate links.


To begin the transition to spring I styled my favorite tray in the living room with rustic, French farmhouse accents and beautiful faux greenery. I love the calm neutrals with the pops of green.


The inspriation for this styled tray vignette was centered around this amazing faux Pothos plant I found on clearance at Pottery Barn a few weeks ago. It is so realistic! While I have a green thumb, I also have an allergy to soil molds and fungus so I play it safe by not having any indoor plants. As a gardener and home decor enthusiast I just can’t be happy without greenery and plants, so I opt for the most realistic faux plants I can find.


I grouped several items with varying heights and textures on my  early spring styled tray, all unifed by a neutral color scheme and a rustic, organic spring theme. My glass cloche contains a simple battery operated flicker candle nestled in a DIY grapevine and moss candle ring on top of two vintage ironstone saucers. I almost always use rustic deer antlers in my vignettes for organic, textural interest, and an interesting vintage treasure. In this display that treasure is a salvaged architectural rosette.


Realistic faux maiden hair fern picks are tucked into a reproduction European vessel and a chippy candle holder is topped by a moss sphere. I am just loving all of the textures here!



I fell in love with this black and white toile-ish design flower pot at Home Goods for $5 and I knew the faux Pothos would look perfect in it. I also tried out the faux Pothos in an rusty French cast iron urn and it looked fabulous, so I am sure you will be seeing the Pothos in the urn sooner or later since I change things around often.






The sun came pouring in through the windows as I was taking pictures and I think it made the faux Pothos look even more realistic!


I will soon be making some changes in my decor for my spring home tour on March 17th (St. Patrick’s Day!), but I am not sure I really want to change this styled tray until closer to Easter. I will probably switch out my pillows soon, but for now I am loving a green velvet and boho macrame pillow combo. I think the macrame pillows and the plants give the living room a refreshed vintage boho spring vibe.

Artificial greenery and florals have come a long way, wouldn’t you agree? I hope this post has inspired you to create a spring styled tray using beautiful faux greenery and plants. I love that they are no-maintenance and always look great! Of course you can always use real plants in your home if you have a green thumb or if you don’t have any problems with soil mold allergens.  I am so happy with my little pothos and ferns that I am defintiely on the hunt for more “fool-the-eye” faux plants to start adding around our home. If the modern farmhouse/boho look isn’t for you but you would like to use plants in your decor, be sure to check out my post, Beautiful Indoor Plants for Farmhouse, French Country and Cottage Style Homes.

    Amber, those faux greens are AMAZING. I may need to get one (or more!) of those pothos if PB still has them. Your daffs are so cheerful too. I was visiting the All ABout Home and had to catch up with this post first!
