    This is my second inquiry on who won the sweepstakes. Usually a list of the names is published a few days
    after the contest ends. Just wondering.

    How do I find out where to buy those Fiddle Leaf Trees in the planters? Please email me with this information should it be found! There are amazing trees and hopefully artificial. Thanks. Anne

      Hi Anne,

      Thanks for your comment. We too love these beautiful Fiddle Leaf Fig Trees! Unfortunately we do not sell an artificial option, and the ones used in this space are real. We would suggest calling your local nursery to see if they have them! Sorry we can’t be of more help.

      Best of Luck,
      The How to Decorate Team
