Dried Florals To Enhance Your Fall Decor

by Decor, DIY, Elizabeth's Picks, Fall

THERE IS SOMETHING TO BE SAID ABOUT THE BEAUTY OF DRIED FLORALS THAT PRESERVE A MOMENT IN TIME. THAT IS WHAT MAKES IT A CLASSIC FOR ANY HOME DECOR.

Why choose a Dried flower arrangement? Don’t get us wrong because we LOVE fresh flowers, but the decor has to be prepared on the same day because they will wither and eventually die. Dried flowers are rising in popularity because they have gone through a drying process and will stay natural and remain beautiful throughout the whole event.

A mix of dried greenery and branches can be as beautiful as a bouquet of flowers and not as traditional as your typical dried floral arrangement.

Some dried items still have noticeable fragrances, such as eucalyptus or lavender. Both are perfect for your bedside table to give you the most relaxing environment as you sleep.

Where Should you display dried flowers?

Since these arrangements can be more fragile and less forgiving than fresh florals, I suggest keeping them in low-traffic areas where they can be easily brushed up against or knocked, away from a heat source (candles!) and away from direct sunlight where they can get sun-bleached.

I suggest a mantle, bookshelf, bedside table, or entryway to keep these dried beauties safe.

Are You interested In Drying Your Own Flowers? Try These Drying Tips:

  • Most flowers prefer to be hung upside down to dry. It stops the flower head from bending and petals dropping.
  • It is best to find a place away from direct sunlight. Choose a darker area and a drier spot (a closet is ideal.)
  • I use raffia or ribbon to hold the stems when I hang them. It is best to stagger out the blooms to avoid too much moisture. For instance, roses staggered at different heights or hung in small bundles of 3-5 dry better than a large bouquet that is densely packed. Too much moisture and the heads of the flowers will grow mould and brown.
  • White florals tend to go yellow or brown when dried. Choosing darker colours will be more forgiving.
