I think the best thing about buying the good fake foliage is that you don't need a ton of it to make something beautiful. It can stand on it's own.
These are the best faux fall leaves that I've seen in a long time (Joann - $3.00 on sale).
The leaves have wonderful texture and variation. Unless you look closely you'd probably think that I cut a branch from the yard.
And have you seen these in the stores this year? I think they're supposed to be something called a Chinese Lantern. Since I've never seen one in real life, I've decided they look real. And if not real then at least pretty cool and fall-ish.
Oh, for pete's sake...You'd think I could have taken off the price tag before I took the picture. Classy, Kimba. Classy. Maybe I should draw a pumpkin face on each pod. ;-)
