5 reasons We love dried flowers

Why are dried flower bouquets so popular? This trending home interior and thoughtful gift is increasingly popular, and we know why. Read on to uncover five reasons we love dried flowers.


The sales figures of dried flowers have soared in recent years, with retailers like John Lewis releasing its own exclusive range.


But why are people raving about them so much? We might be biased, but we think there are many reasons to love dried flowers.

Here are five reasons that we believe are worth mentioning that will convince any fresh flower lover to make the switch.

Why we love dried flowers

Dried flowers are the same as fresh flowers but with extra benefits, which is why we are obsessed with them.

But if you’re still trying to convince your friends and family why they’re the bee’s knees, send them this blog to change their minds. Here are five reasons why we love dried flowers:

1. Preserved flowers are a constant reminder of love

Receiving a simple flower bouquet has been known to boost your mood and overall energy, making them the perfect gift to show your love to family, friends, and acquaintances.

Not only do dried flowers make great gifts, but they can also remind you of an event or occasion and make the special memories last a lifetime.

We'll give you an example.

Say you spend a small fortune on fresh bouquets of blooms for your wedding centrepieces, backdrops, and bridal bunches.

But five days later, they are wilting and ready for the bin. Not only is this a waste of money, but it means your special day has ended, with only pictures to remind you of the day.

However, with a beautiful bunch of dried flowers, you can be transported to the special day for the next 2-4 years, providing you show them a tiny bit of TLC.

Why wouldn’t you want that?

A dried flowers love quote we are obsessed with is: “The beauty of a dried flower is that it never dies.” And given that love and affection won't ever die with dried flowers, it's particularly fitting.

2. They require low maintenance

Unlike fresh flowers, dried flowers don’t require much attention. They can maintain their beauty all by themselves.

Once you’ve brought your dried flower arrangement, they don’t require water, feeding, or any other form of care. Other than dusting or a clean from time to time.

So, if you live a busy lifestyle, you’ll love dried flowers.

3. Dried flowers are perfect for events

It’s so easy to fall into the trap of buying fresh flowers for an upcoming occasion. They are readily available in stores and seem like a clear option for many.

Yet, dried flowers are perfect at any event and can be kept and appreciated for years.

Here are some events that dried flowers are perfect for:

  • Weddings
  • Funerals
  • Birthdays
  • Baby showers
  • Anniversaries
  • Festivals

And thanks to their variety, you can pick a bouquet to fit the theme, colour scheme, season, and atmosphere.  

Better yet, they are reusable. (More on this later.)

4. Every bouquet is versatile and different

There are many different types of flowers and foliage, from helichrysum, roses, and Phalaris to bunny tails and pampas.

Flowers come in varying shapes, sizes, and colours, and they're crafted to fit the person or occasion.

There’s nothing we love more than creating our handmade mini bouquets, bestsellers, and pet-friendly dried flowers. The endless options and combinations can suit any event, person, or home interior.

5. They are sustainable

The best quality dried flowers (like ours) are sustainable and eco-friendly, as they produce less waste and last longer than fresh alternatives.

It’s essential to note that depending on how your dried flowers have been dried and made will determine how biodegradable they are. That’s why it pays to invest in the best provider.

We’ve never heard a bad word about a dried flower bouquet. Their benefits are endless and once you buy one bouquet, you’ll be coming back for more.

Our dried flower bouquets are handmade, and every flower arrangement is unique.

And we want to make sure all life's moments are memorable. So, what better way than a bouquet that will never die and remind you of the good times for years to come?
