From style magazines to Instagram, we can no longer ignore it: dried flowers are completely on-trend again. Not only bloggers are delighted with our flowers, they are also abundantly present at the recent home and interior fairs in Paris and Cologne. In the current spirit of the age, we see a lot of looking back into the past: in fashion, interior and also in flowers. They fit perfectly into the current trend in which slow living and nostalgia have been emphasized.

Dried flowers remain popular in all shapes and colours. A popular decoration in Social Media is the “Flower Cloud”. A floating object that consists entirely of mostly dried flowers. By using fragile-looking flowers and grasses, the arrangement looks a bit like a cloud.
The flower cloud in our example is made of dried grasses: various types of pampas, arundo, festuca and miscanthus. These grasses have been supplemented with some natural looking materials such as lunaria and bleached ruscus.
Dried flower bouquet
Due to the shift of a trend towards bouquets, we have added DIY packages to our range. This is a package consisting of various flowers, which you can compose into one or more bouquets. From large dried flower bouquets to small dried flower bouquets Decofleur has also created some ready-made dried bouquets. These are very suitable for gift giving to your friends and loved ones.

Dried flowers are a wonderful alternative to fresh flowers. Unlike fresh flowers, you can enjoy our drieds for many months. You bring the outside in and thus create a bit of peace in the house.
They are used in a new way in your interior, traditional bouquets as we have seen in the eighties have given way to a more modern approach: in addition to bell jars, wreaths and hanging bouquets, we see abstract objects made of plumes. The plume in all its simplicity also works well; with its graceful shape you simply bring nature into your home.
Popular dried bouquets consist of various flowers, often several bright colours of one type are combined in a bouquet. The clash of colours should not be missing in a dry bouquet in 2022. Pink, purple and red combined with each other form a warm composition of colours. Especially the combination of many different varieties, such as our coloured phalaris, is very popular with the public.
Different kind of dried flowers
Our webshop has a wide variety of flowers. In the summer all flowers are cut, dried and packed, so that we have our products available year round. The flowers and other crops are purchased directly at our local suppliers. Once harvest comes in, the feedback to our growers is continuously. Thanks to our many years of mutual experience, we can select the most beautiful products together.
Through our experience, we know when flowers are most suitable to be dried in their flowering stage. To preserve the natural appearance as much as possible, flowers are prepared for drying in our drying cells a few hours after they have been cut. The flowers are bundled upside down -to prevent breakage- and dried actively with hot air for at least 24 hours. Also products such as; grasses, decorative materials, preserved moss, shells and botanicals can be found at www.decofleur.com.
Finally, we have some tips and suggestions. If you want to dry flowers yourself, you can hang the bunches of flowers or grasses upside down in a dark, preferably well-ventilated room. Some flower varieties are better suited for drying than others, in general firm flowers maintain their beauty the best.
Some examples of suitable flower types are: helichrysum, thistles, achillea parker, statice, lavender and grains, such as wheat and oats. There are softer flowers such as delphiniums and roses that are suitable for drying. The list is endless, it’s always a good idea to experiment with your own flowers to get your own unique dried beauties.
To maintain quality dried flowers
You can store the flowers by keeping them out of the sun and in a dry place: flowers fade faster in direct sunlight. Also try to touch the flowers as little as possible, the flowers might easily be damaged. If your dried flowers are a bit dusty, you can carefully clean them with a hair dryer: set the hair dryer to the coldest, lowest setting and carefully blow off the dust at a distance from the flowers.
