THE LONG-LASTING BEAUTY OF DRIED FLOWERS
Dried flowers for everlasting smiles
Dried flower are like a time capsule. They capture the beauty and the vibrancy of natural flowers for a long, long time. I find them extremely beautiful and their rise in popularity is really no surprise.
I love working with dried botanical in all seasons, as they are long-lasting and their colors are subtle and refined. I see them as an expression of nature in all its possible forms. I like to design bouquets or installations exclusively from dried flowers, but I also love to pair them in bouquets or installations with fresh flowers as an accent, for texture and for a nice contrast. They always bring an unexpected touch to a bouquet or floral arrangement.
Why choose dried flowers? The endless possibilities they bring
There are many reasons to consider investing in a bunch of dried blooms. They are environmentally friendly, thanks to their low carbon footprint, and they have a long lasting life.
It goes without saying, but dried flowers are utterly gorgeous and, just like fresh flowers, they are available in many shapes, colors and sizes. The long-lasting nature of dried flowers could be the foundation for any creative project, especially because they are accessible all year round, during all seasons. Each day we find new and unique ways of arranging our favorite ones and the creative possibilities are endless.
I find dried flower extremely versatile, as there are found in so many unique specialties and colors that there really is no end to the number of ways dried flowers can be used.
Another glowing benefit of dried flowers is the ability to change up the arrangement. Not only can you rearrange or repurpose the existing flowers, but you can also add and subtract new flowers and grasses over time.
The gift that keeps on giving. Dried flowers versus fresh flowers
If replenishing your lovely place with fresh flowers is proving hard to justify during these times with lockdowns and isolations, it might be time to consider trying dried flowers. Not only that dried flower are super popular right now, but they also make an incredible gift – one that keeps on giving.
Although prices of dried flowers certainly vary a lot between vendors, you can expect them to cost you substantially more than a fresh bunch for the size. But even if they are more expensive than the fresh flowers, they are a great value for money if you would consider that some of them can last up to 2 years. And the options are endless.
