Dried flowers have long taken their place of honor on tables, on window sills, and on the floor. We tell you what features these unpretentious bouquets have and show what trends in the design of compositions can be traced in recent years.
Features of dried flowers In their qualities, compositions of dried flowers are more similar to decorative items than to living plants. The main common feature is durability: with simple care, the “life” of dried flowers lasts three or more years. At the same time, such a bouquet can be both collected independently and bought in a boutique.
In the first case, it is important to observe a couple of simple rules:
1. It is worth going to the meadows only in dry weather, the most suitable time is after the first frosts: then the strongest plants will be visible immediately (they will not crumble much and will retain a straight “stand”).
2. Obviously, when collecting dried flowers, you can not pull the plant out of the ground. But, despite the fact that a dry stem can be easily broken, it is better to arm yourself with scissors anyway: so you do not risk breaking the neighboring plants and protect the selected stem from unnecessary crumbling.
Care Dried flowers are an ideal option for those who want to place a beautiful bouquet and forget about caring for it. The main thing is that the optimal air humidity is maintained in the room and there are no sudden temperature changes. If you choose a bright composition, make sure that direct sunlight does not fall on the bouquet, otherwise, the plant will dry out and lose its original saturated color. In addition, during the dull autumn evenings or in the atmosphere of the upcoming winter holidays, do not forget that compositions from dried flowers with burning candles are extremely unsafe.
