What are dried flowers?
First of all, it's nice to know exactly what dried flowers are. As the name suggests, these are dried flowers. In the market and at the local florist, you often buy fresh (cut) flowers. Always lovely to give and certainly to receive, but unfortunately, these flowers only last for a very limited time. With a bit of luck, 7 days. That's not the case with dried flowers. Due to the special drying process of dried flowers, they last for years. We offer a standard 3-month guarantee on all our dried flowers, whether loose or as a bouquet. But don't worry. Even after that time, you can still enjoy them for many more months.
To turn fresh flowers and plants into dried flowers, they must be suitable for this purpose. Not every flower species can be dried well and therefore is not suitable for use as dried flowers. In total, there are approximately 35 species that are perfectly suitable for drying. In addition, many flowers and plants are naturally dry. In a dried flower bouquet, you often find grains, dried pine cones, and other 'dry' decorations.
Why choose dried flowers?
But why would you choose dried flowers besides the fact that they last a very long time? First of all, dried flowers are back in style and have become an integral part of home and interior magazines, stores, and of course, popular TV programs like VT Wonen.
We have listed the advantages of choosing dried flowers for you:
They last much longer than fresh flowers. As mentioned, perhaps the biggest and most obvious advantage of dried flowers is that they last much longer than fresh flowers. While you can expect to enjoy fresh flowers for a mere 7 days with a bit of luck, we offer a 3-month guarantee on all our dried flowers, and even after that time, we are quite sure you can add another 2 to 3 months, and in some cases, even up to a year. This means you'll benefit from buying dried flowers for a long time.
They are sustainable due to their long lifespan
At the same time, this long lifespan is also very sustainable, not only in terms of time but also in terms of being environmentally friendly. So, if you choose dried flowers, you automatically opt for an environmentally friendly alternative. By purchasing these 100% natural dried flowers, you significantly reduce your carbon footprint. This is definitely something to be proud of in these times.
They require no care
Furthermore, choosing dried flowers also means choosing convenience. They simply require no care at all. Normally, you are used to keeping an eye on when your flowers need water. This is not the case with dried flowers. For example, if you go on vacation, no problem at all. When you return, your dried flowers will still look exactly the same.
Savings with dried flowers
As mentioned, dried flowers last exceptionally long. This means you won't need to buy new flowers as often. Considering that fresh flowers can be quite expensive, this will result in significant cost savings. While you would normally buy new flowers every week or every other week, now it's more like every six months, and dried flowers aren't even much more expensive!
Beautiful combinations are possible
As mentioned, there are many different types of dried flowers, which allows for countless beautiful combinations. Do you like bright colors? Or do you prefer a more subdued bouquet? Whatever your preferences, it's not a problem to realize them. Place them in a beautiful vase to complete the look. Dried flowers with vases are increasingly appearing in living rooms, bedrooms, and offices.
You can place them anywhere
Did you also know that you can place dried flowers anywhere? Normally, you have to consider factors like light, sun, and drafts when placing fresh flowers. This is not an issue with dried flowers. You can literally place dried flowers anywhere. So, if you have a slightly darker spot in your home where fresh flowers often wither, a dried flower bouquet is the solution to still enjoy some flowers there. They also look great in such places.
Which dried flowers should you choose?
Given the many types of dried flowers, there are numerous ways to combine them into a dried flower bouquet. Currently, there are many unique dried flower bouquets available. For example, one may be filled with bright colors. The 'Cosy Winter' dried flower bouquet is a great example of this. This bouquet with a vase is a real gift suggestion. Many people are delighted to have such a dried flower bouquet in their home.
At the same time, it's also possible to opt for a more tranquil option. Think of the 'Calm Coziness' dried flower bouquet. It radiates calmness and warmth, even though it contains some beautiful dried flowers.

With dried flowers, you can endlessly mix and vary in your interior. Due to the long lifespan of a dried bouquet, you can enjoy it for at least 5 months. We offer a 3-month guarantee on all our dried flower bouquets, so compared to fresh flowers, a dried flower bouquet lasts much longer.
