|Dried flowers have been one of the biggest trends of the last two years, sweeping through the wedding industry and dominating interior design. So why should that slow down for Christmas?
Dried flower florist Mary Elizabeth Flowers presents a range of Christmas decorations which bring together the timeless traditions of Christmas with this contemporary mega-trend.
This festive collection of dried flower wreaths, tree decorations and DIY floristry craft kits prove that dried flowers are for Christmas, not just for life.
How To Carry the Dried Flower Trend into The Festive Season
All individually handmade by trained florists, these beautiful British products ooze charm and demonstrate the versatility of the dried flower aesthetic, giving options for how to incorporate dried flowers into almost any Christmas décor theme.
The range features traditional festive greens and golds; bleached, alpine neutrals; romantic pink and red hues, and fairy-light brights.
The range of products features:
A selection of mouth-blown glass baubles decorated from the inside with real dried and preserved flowers, foliage and feathers, finished with a velvet ribbon for hanging on the tree. (£12 each or £28 for a box of three)
Miniature handmade Christmas stocking decorations in three different colourways, each bursting with a tiny floral bouquet. (£15 each)
Individually handmade wreaths created using real dried and preserved flowers, foliage, grasses and feathers to decorate interior doors, walls and chimney breasts. (£65)
DIY floristry craft kits complete with all the materials, guidance and preserved flowers, fruits and foliage to get crafty and create your own Christmas wreath (£35) and garland (£48) decorations.
A Sustainable Option
As well as meeting the current aesthetic trend, these dried flower Christmas decorations have environmental virtues in their favour.
Unlike wreaths and garlands made from fresh materials, the natural longevity of dried flowers means these floral decorations can be stored away to be brought out year after year, becoming part of the fabric of your festive traditions.
There’s nothing throw-away about these adornments, making them a more sustainable option.
Another practical virtue of dried and preserved flowers and foliage is that they don’t mind the heat like fresh evergreens and won’t wilt in a cosy well-heated room or hung above a fireplace. So you can deck the halls nice and early and have them looking their best all the way to New Year.
