You can place the two faux trees side-by-side or overlapping each other - they will seamlessly blend. Both have that airy and clean look.

Each leaf on both silk trees would work together to bring the feeling of sitting by a peaceful riverbank.
The rounded bright green leaves of this silk plant, placed in the back of a fake olive tree, will evoke the illusion of each cluster of olive leaves being surrounded by a halo of the ferns' leaves. This faux plant is 54" tall, so choose it only for shorter fake olive trees.
