Now, I know that there are various artificial palms, plastic and synthetic palms, electric operated palms, preserved palms and what else but this latest addition to the palm world is unreal really... however, I still need to give some brownie points for novelty factor!
Came across this palm in a particular car show room in the city. They obviously had given the traditional ordinary balloons a big heave-ho and taken on a trendy tropical setting by installing a couple of "maintenance free" coconut palms... ha2. Must say, it's eye catching whether tacky or not.

Oh, they did have a potted Lady Palm further away from the main entrance where the balloons were set up but that kind of dried up and was left half dead.
Might be worth considering if planning a tropical or palm theme party in the midst of winter???
Reminder to self, must take a picture of that (dead plant) too when I pass that way again... and check if the helium balloon palms still standing.
