Giving Fresh Flowers a New Purpose and Life

Fresh floral arrangements in an event or a wedding can give life and character to the venue and brighten the atmosphere of a celebration. Yet, once an event is over, the flowers are usually discarded and disposed of, creating a large amount of flowers wastage. Due to the short lifespan of flowers, the floral industry traditionally has a very high wastage of flowers.

What if we can enjoy the beauty of flowers in another form for a span of months or years? What if we can recreate and repurpose flowers to take on a new life?

Dried flowers are one of the many ways to repurpose fresh flowers. Dried flowers are fresh flowers that are dried naturally while they are fresh and before they start to wilt. Dried flowers have a shelf life of around half a year to two years if they are kept and taken care properly.

What exactly is the appeal of dried flowers that seem to resonate with today’s generation?

Compared to fresh flowers arrangement that could be enjoyed over a timespan of a few days, dried flowers are longer lasting and their beauty can be enjoyed for a much longer time. So, instead of replacing the fresh flowers decoration every few other days, dried flower arrangements can last longer.

Instead of thinking dried flowers as a substitute for fresh flowers, we can think of dried flowers as a complement to the fresh flowers. Dried flowers open up a whole new universe of color palettes and textures, expanding the spectrum of available choices for florists’ selection in a flower design. When looking for colors that are antique, gray and muted, dried flowers fit perfectly in this category. Dried flowers can be arranged in a design of pure dried flowers mix or used together with fresh flowers to create a more dynamic arrangement.

Dried flowers are a great addition to elevate the interior designs of a home. Compared to fresh floral arrangements, which need attentive care and need to be changed often, dried flowers are cheaper, have lower maintenance and lasts longer.

Besides that, using organic, natural colors and textures materials are also a growing trend in interior design. There is an innate desire for us to connect with nature, especially if we live in the hustle and bustle of a city life. Dried flowers bring nature and simplicity in to our homes and lives, providing comfort and peace of mind to us.
