Cheap Faux Fruit Vase Filler

I've heard that faux flowers are a big interior design no-no.  Is faux fruit?  I'm not sure, but I like how it looks in a glass cake stand in my kitchen.  I also like how it looks in a natural wooden bowl...

....or a simple glass cylinder

The apples and the lemons are from Pottery Barn and they're $14.00 for 6.  Wal-Mart sells faux fruit for $1.00 per piece.  That's where I got my pears.  Here's a close up:

They look pretty real, huh?


  1. I've heard of people who love it and then there are people who hate it. Kind of like faux flowers, too. I've used realistic looking faux fruit when I have done models and also in a vacant home staging for a new house. It has to look real to me or I won't use it. The builder I did that work for told me that one time they came into one of their models and someone had tried to take a bite out of a fake apple! So, I guess some of them do look real enough.

  2. Like everything else beauty is in the eye of the beholder. If you like faux flowers or fruit use them. I personally like both for the color and versatility they bring to decorating.
