Are you looking for ways to add more French farmhouse style or a bit of a natural style vibe to your home? If so, then these faux olive tree topiaries might be just what you are looking for! I had been wanting to find some type of trees or topiaries for each side of our fireplace for a while. I have always loved real olive trees like the ones pictured below, but haven’t been ready to commit to the maintenance of a live indoor tree just yet.
Using olive trees as decorative accents is an easy way to create French farmhouse style. They are classic and elegant, and add a touch of green without being overpowering in neutral rooms.
Recently I had the opportunity to partner with Silk Plants Direct to choose a product for review from their extensive line of beautiful silk flowers, plants and accessories. There were so many great products, but I fell in love with their 3 foot faux potted olive topiary, pack of two. Perfect for the fireplace!
I had been waiting for spring to share these awesome olive tree topiaries here on the blog, so I chose to reveal them in my Early Spring Home Tour. Since there was so much interest in the trees by my readers, I decided to post my review today. *This is a sponsored post. All opinions are my own.
Our kitchen has the best lighting so I took a few pictures here to show you the amazing detail and quality of these trees.
One of the first things my husband noted was the realistic look of the soil. It even has a little bit of moss on it, but it is a type of resin and will not flake off, which is a major plus.
The leaves are so pretty, and as you can see up close they do not have a plastic look, although they are not a true olive color like some of the other faux olive trees I have seen. Because I have some teal bottles, throw pillows, and other decorative accents, the color of the leaves will still work well for my decor.
The olives have a very nice coloration of burgandy and olive green, as if they are ripening. The stem is also extremely realistic.
I really love the urns that the trees are in, but I wanted something a little different for the living room. These black urns have a beautiful worn patina, and eventually I might use them as they are, when I am wanting a change.
Before I found some beautiful concrete urns for the living room, I also experimented with placing one of the trees in an antique crock with some burlap, and I really liked it too. I love that these topiaries can be dressed up or down depending on the pot or container. They also would look great in olive buckets. I am thinking I will switch them out in the fall, for a more rustic farmhouse look combined with some pumpkins maybe in the kitchen or dining room.
Here they are placed in their new home, just in time for my Early Spring Home Tour. I love the elegant and classic look of the trees on each side of the hearth.
I was wanting the trees to stand a little taller, so I purchased two tall concrete urns at Hobby Lobby. They are perfect for elevating the olive trees to the height I prefer for this area.
I absolutely love the old world, French country patina on the concrete urns. I will probably decorate with these faux olive trees in this spot during the spring and summer year after year.
As you can see, the color of the underside of the leaves picks up the green tone in my new teal velvet pillows and the farmhouse style of my new garden pillow. I decorate with a garden theme from spring through fall, so these trees are perfect for my decor.
I am very pleased with these faux olive tree topiaries! I was also very impressed with the quality, the fast shipping, and the huge selection of silk plants and decorative accessories available on the Silk Plants Direct website.
