Goodbye 2016 ~ Hello New Year!

Last weekend we had to say goodbye to 2016 and at Afloral.com we are a little sad to see it go. We had an amazing year that brought us so many new and exciting opportunities to share our faux flower obsession with others.

Here are our top 5 reasons we loved 2016:

1.  We started 2016 soaring high… across the ocean that is.  We are now shipping directly to the UK and Australia!

2.  With Spring came a dream come true, a faux flower spread in Martha Stewart Wedding.
