How to "fake" a Flowering Orchid

Remember the little bar cart set-up I showed you yesterday?



See the Orchid plant? Pretty aren't they?

Well, the orchid leaves are real... but the flower part is not.

After my orchid stopped blooming, I went to Michael's and picked up a couple of Orchid flowers and stuck them in the pot with the leftover leaves.  


I think I paid 5 or 6 dollars for the two stems. 
(They were on sale for 50% off, but I was prepared to use my 40% off coupon if they weren't on sale.)



I've noticed that the stalks remaining from the previous blooms has a little  growth on it, so I'm assuming new flowers are on their way, but until then, I'll enjoy the fake.


I think they look very real.  Don't you?


So, have I inspired you to "fake it" until you make it?  

Sorry I couldn't help myself ;)
