5 reasons you should choose dried flowers

Dried flowers are currently one of the leading trends in the floral industry, and it is no surprise why. Given factors like their versatility and needing little to no maintenance, it is no wonder that people are going crazy for them. They are perfect for various occasions, including weddings, anniversaries, birthday gifts, mother’s day, and many more. 

But you might be wondering what other benefits these blooms have.  

Read on to find out 5 reasons why we think you should choose dried flowers.

Dried flowers are long-lasting

The main benefit you will hear repeatedly is that dried flowers can last for a long time, often keeping their picture-perfect appearance for many years. When you compare this to the lifetime of a fresh flower bouquet, it is pretty exceptional. It means that in the long run, you will not only get to keep a beautiful bouquet in your home, but you will also save a considerable amount of money that you would otherwise have spent on refreshing your old fresh flowers. This also makes them the perfect souvenir, so if you have any sentimental flowers, such as a wedding bouquet, or a gift from a loved one, you can preserve them for many years. 

Dried flowers don’t need to be watered

Dried flowers are the perfect alternative for anyone who doesn’t have the time or patience to keep up with maintaining fresh blooms. This is because dried flowers do not need to be watered AT ALL. We highly recommend you go out of your way to keep water away from your bouquets. This is because their original moisture has been evaporated from them during the drying process. Henceforth they no longer require water or sunlight to survive. If your dried blooms come into contact with water, they will potentially start to rot and mould, so it is best to avoid them at all costs! 

Dried flowers come in all shapes, colours and sizes

Just like fresh flowers, dried flowers come in all shapes, colours and sizes. Here at The Last Bunch we have a variety of bouquet arrangements, perfect for adhering to your unique style. From the vibrant, eye-catching Leona to the subtle and sophisticated Olivia, our bouquets are bright, beautiful and work perfectly in any home interior. 

We also have a variety of different sizes including our best-selling mini bouquets, or as we like to call them, BEEquets. These are made in collaboration with Bees For Development, a global charity that helps some of the world’s poorest people become self-sufficient through beekeeping. With each Beequet purchased, we will donate £2.00 to help harness the power of bees to create less poverty and more biodiversity.

Dried flowers are for all seasons

We can’t forget about how these blooms are perfect for all seasons. As they are dried, they can easily be turned into trendy, seasonal bouquets by dyeing the flowers or arranging them effectively. For example, you can keep a bright summer bouquet in your home all year round, but if you wish to change it up for the festive season, you can often find Christmas-themed bouquets that will last for many years. Their long-lasting shelf-life means you don’t have to worry about waiting for your blooms to be in season! 

They are a gift that keeps on giving

Whether you are looking for a bouquet to add a splash of colour to your home or need the perfect last-minute pick-me-up for your loved ones, dried flowers are the way to go. With their long-lasting shelf-life and self-sufficiency, they truly are the gift that keeps giving! Did we also mention how good they are for the environment?
