Where to buy the best faux olive trees on the market today.
If you’ve landed on this post, chances are you’re looking to add a faux olive tree to your home.
But not just any faux olive tree – the most realistic one you can find.
Let’s be honest, looking for the right faux plants and trees can be like finding that magical needle in a giant haystack. There are so many to choose from. And it’s hard to tell from online pictures how it’s going to look once it comes through your front door.
You’re in luck because today, I’m breaking down the best faux olive trees on the market. And no, this isn’t going to be an overwhelming list of 50 olive trees that you have to sift through.
I’m only showing you what I believe is truly the best of the best olive trees out there right now. And trust me – I am the pickiest person you know when it comes to faux botanicals and I happen to have eagle eyes and can spot a fakey from a mile away.
AND – I just went through this process myself. I went through a ton of options and spent a lot of late nights scrolling and zooming in and browsing until my eyes were crossed. (I know, tough life over here.)
When I say I did my research, I really did. And I’m happy to share the results with you.
I also rounded up a few takeaways which I think are helpful with faux plants and flowers in general, but especially with faux trees.
These trees are mighty and command attention and are the first things you see when walking into a room.
The Best Faux Olive Trees
Alright, so let’s jump into it. Here are the trees that I think are worthy of placement in your home.
ONE// Pottery Barn – These olive trees are nice because not only are they very realistic, but they come in two different heights, 71 inches high and 84 inches high. Wowza! Talk about commanding the room. I’ve seen this version on Instagram and it really does look amazing in spaces. You can’t go wrong.
TWO// Crate and Barrel – This one is a bit bushier but if you want a fuller looking olive tree then this will work for you. This tree came on my radar through one of my favorite bloggers, Chris Loves Julia. I love all her recommendations and if it’s good enough for her then it’s good enough for me. 🙂
THREE// Wayfair – Another bushy tree! The reviews state that the trunk is very substantial and the tree itself is very real looking. This one is 72 inches tall and a bit pricier, but Wayfair offers frequent sales so you might be able to score a deal on it one of these days.
FOUR// World Market – If you want more of a baby olive tree, this one is good. I love World Market and they became famous for their faux fiddle leaf tree. I would expect the same over their version of a faux olive tree.
I think this one is pretty nice, especially for the price! But keep in mind that it’s small and cute. Just 48” high. Sometimes we don’t want or need a massive olive tree, ya know? I wanted a shorter tree myself so I looked very closely at getting this one.
FIVE // Amazon – Their faux plant offerings are getting better and better but you really need to be picky here. Once something catches on and becomes popular, the Amazon market tends to get flooded and suddenly you are drowning in a sea of options. It can be overwhelming for sure.
Still love Amazon, though. This one is a good deal for the price and it’s tall at 82” high. At the time of writing this post, it had 170 reviews, mostly good. This tree is also skinny – so if you have a tighter space to fill, this one is a good choice.
SIX// Etsy – Oh my gosh you guys! I never even thought to think of Etsy for faux plants but I’m so glad I stumbled on this one. Ok, actually two. I ended up going with this one and couldn’t be happier. It’s exactly what I was looking for – shorter, branchy, and not super full. PERFECT.
The price was right and it came pretty quick for Etsy. This shop has a 70” and 48” high option. I went with the smaller version. I am considering the taller one once my budget allows.
I was also strongly considering buying from this Etsy shop, which also has gorgeous trees and great reviews. I believe either shop will make you happy!
SEVEN// Mcgee and Co.
Pricey? Yes. Gorgeous? Also, yes.
I love the overall shape of this tree. Comes in two height options as well.
- When I want something to look as realistic as possible, I always go straight to the source. Take a look at the real deal. Many of them look branchy and spread out, with a long skinny trunk.
- Black Olives or Green Olives or no olives?? Some of these trees come with black olives and some have green olives. The one I purchased has black olives. I don’t think I mind this either way, but something to consider. I suppose you could always pull them off if you don’t want them.
- Definitely put your olive tree in a larger basket or pot. A lot of these faux olive trees come in these tiny little pots which look weird and are top-heavy. If you buy a baby tree, you can give it some more height by placing it in a pot with a stand or legs on it. But either way, definitely “re-pot” them to make them look even more real and substantial. Here are some good options …
So there you have it. My picks for the best faux olive trees. Have any you want to add to the list? Leave a comment or drop me an email – I’m all ears. 🙂
