Adding florals to your home can breathe vibrance, charm, and fresh scents into just about any space. A fresh bouquet or bespoke floral arrangement instantly brightens any room with striking hues and natural beauty. Still, despite their whimsical and energizing appearance, they eventually wilt. It seems their petals fall off after mere moments of admiring them, then it’s time for your bi-weekly — and sometimes, expensive — trip to your florist.
While it’s totally possible to DIY a gorgeous bouquet at home with botanicals from your favorite grocery store (hello, Trader Joe’s), you’re likely to shop from a limited selection. Plus, to create an entire arrangement, you could end up spending just as much as you would at a floral boutique and still have to do all the work yourself. Instead, consider investing in quality preserved arrangements to save yourself a lifetime — or at least a year — of flower money.
The coolest and most practical thing about preserved arrangements is that they are dried. So, once you buy these handcrafted bundles, they’re yours forever. This option is super sustainable because, for the most part, their appearance won’t change over time. The only true downside is a little shedding and breakage here and there.
The fix for this is a hint of hairspray, a delicate hand, and creativity to extend the life of your dried florals. To add to the allure, these bouquets and arrangements usually aren’t glued together, but securely tied with thread or twine for a more handcrafted look. The simple packaging makes it easy to combine bunches to make a custom creation of your own. They’re also available in seasonal styles and include other foliage for added color, like grasses and leaves.
Naturally grown, harvested, and dyed, you’ll love having these organic pieces that require little to no upkeep in your home. Keep reading for floral decor that will revitalize your space and positively affect your mood so you can stay in full bloom.
