Why choose dried flowers for Mother’s Day?
There is no better way to show your love this Mother’s Day than with a beautiful dried bouquet. They are the perfect sustainable alternative to fresh flowers, and make an adorable, unique gift.
In this article, we talk about the benefits of choosing dried flower bouquets, and take you through the process of selecting the ideal arrangement for your own mum!
Dried flowers make the perfect alternative to fresh flowers as they have a significantly longer life-span. Whereas normal fresh flowers will keep for a week before wilting, dried flowers can last for many years when given the proper care and maintenance. This makes them perfect keepsakes to immortalise your appreciation for the mothers in your life.
Although these blooms do require a small amount of care, overall they can mostly be kept to themselves. They do not require water or sunlight, and in fact it is recommended that these are avoided at all costs in order to avoid any damage coming to them. In terms of maintenance, the only care that will need to be taken is that if you notice any dust on the flowers, it would be beneficial to remove this as soon as possible, in order to keep their appearance sleek and elegant. Other than that, dried flowers can be left to their own devices, to add a touch of nature to your home for a long period of time.
If you or your mum suffers from springtime allergies, this can really hinder plans for gifting a beautiful bouquet of flowers. However, not all is lost, instead getting her a bouquet of dried flowers allows you to bring a wonderful addition of nature into the home, without the need for constant tissues. This is because dried flowers don’t contain any pollen, as they lose it during the drying process. This makes them the perfect gift or alternative for people who suffer from allergies, as they get to keep the flowers they love without irritating their sinuses.
How to find your mum the perfect bouquet.
If you have no idea where to start with choosing the perfect bouquet for your mum, don’t panic. We have compiled a list of questions to ask yourself to make the selection process a lot simpler!
What’s her favourite colour?
The first question that you should consider is what is your mum's favourite colour. Here at The Last Bunch we offer a wide variety of different colour bouquets, and even have the ability for you to ‘Shop by Colour’ on our website, meaning there is no added stress for you in terms of scrolling through every single coloured bouquet we have on offer.
If your mum loves bright colours then you might want to consider the ‘Elysia’ bouquet, which includes vibrant shades of purples, pinks and yellows. This bouquet includes blooms such as bunny tails, delphiniums, and limonium, making this bright beautiful bouquet perfect for any interior.
Or maybe she prefers the elegance of white blooms, in which case you might want to consider the ‘Olivia’ bouquet which includes white roses, amaranthus, and wild reed plumes, which can help to fill any home with a sense of calm and zen through its beautiful neutral tones.
What are her favourite flowers?
The next question to consider is what are her favourite flowers. From roses to peonies to sunflowers, at The Last Bunch we incorporate lots of popular flowers in our bouquets, making it perfect for any mother who has a stand-out favourite bloom.
How much room does she have in her home for her flowers? *good chance to talk about the different sizes we do*
Lastly, it is important to consider how much room your mum has in her home to display a bouquet. Here at The Last Bunch we offer three different sizes of bouquets, making it simple for you to choose the best option for your mum’s home.
Our fan-favourite bouquet is our mini bouquet, which we like to call our BEEquet’s. These bouquets have been made in collaboration with Bees For Development, which is a global charity that helps some of the world’s poorest people become self-sufficient through beekeeping. So for every purchase you make, we donate £2.00 to the charity in order to harness the power of bees, to create less poverty and more biodiversity. This would be the perfect little gift to a mum who doesn’t have a lot of space in her home, and also appreciates donating to a good cause!
