In our last post we discussed the best flowers to plant in a cutting garden, because a vase of flowers can work wonders for your home decor. However, whether you buy them from a florist or get them from your own garden, there’s no denying that constantly changing out your floral arrangements can be a bit of a hassle. So what can you do if you want to include a floral arrangement in your interior design, but need a more convenient, long-lasting option? Don’t turn to fake plants just yet, because I’m going to let you in on a secret straight from the interior designer‘s toolbox: preserved plants.
Preserved plants offer the perfect solution for adding floral arrangements to your home. They look real because they are, and the preservation process allows the plants to retain their color and fresh appearance, unlike drying. Add some charm to your breakfast table with a bowl of preserved roses or greet guests with an urn of protea in the foyer.
Hydrangeas, boxwood, and eucalyptus are particularly suited to preservation and make wonderful accents in all sorts of floral creations, from grand, formal arrangements to small, casual bouquets.
These preserved plants are the accessory to complete a room. They cost more than fresh floral arrangements due to the delicate preservation process, but you will be able to enjoy them for years to come.
