Dried Flowers

Dried flowers are not just to be enjoyed in the winter months when there are no fresh blooms. They can be enjoyed all year round, and if they are cared for properly, dried flower arrangements can last for years. Dried flowers come in many shapes, sizes, and bright colors, they are not small, faded, crusty blooms. Dried flower arrangements are just as colorful and vibrant as their fresh counterparts, and they last much longer. They can brighten up any room and fit style of home decor.

Dried flower arrangements must be cared for properly. They should be kept out of direct sunlight. They should not be allowed to become damp, rooms with alot of consensation should be avoided. In order to clean any dust that may collect on the flowers, a simple hairdryer can be used, it should be set on low speed with the cool temperature setting.

Flower Pot Arrangement with Oranges

I created a flower pot arrangement using a mix of flowers with hues of orange, yellow, tan, and white. This arrangement also has real dried whole slit oranges. It comes in decorated terra cotta flower pot.

I added a cute little embellishment to the arrangement - little orange and black faux insects on the flower petals.

This arrangement can be purchased at TC Fragrance Crafts.
