I have fake calla lillies for decor in my house.  This is the picture I took of them at our old house.  Ignore the colors I wanted bright for the spring lol but I had several people ask me if they were real.

 

ETA: Here is a picture of real calla lillies we have planted in our yard.  This is a picture from last year, as the calla’s haven’t bloomed yet this year.

@Lily_of_the_valley:  I used fake real touch flowers for my bouquets and the mens boutonnieres. My bouquet was a combination of different types orchids and plumerias and the mens boutonnieres were orchids. Everyone thought all the flowers were real! You can take a peak at my recap to see the flowers in action. Below is a picture of my bouquet

@Lily_of_the_valley:  It depends on the quality of the faux flowers, but I agree wtih your that hydrangeas are usually well done. I’ve seen Calla lilies and lilies-of-the-valley and SOME lilies that look fine as faux. I’ve also seen come lilies that look hideous.

I’ve never seen a realistic looking bearded iris.

I walk past the bins of fake flowers at the crafts stores and evaluate what isn’t ugly. There are a fair number of ugly ones.

Stick to White as a color–they often don’t get the colors true. Red or yellow or pink roses are easy to copy, though. Years ago I bought miniature roses that were really great copies and they have plastic (not fabric) stems and leaves.
