Care Instructions

Dried flowers can be enjoyed for years to come with little upkeep required. Preserved florals are known to be more resilient than dried as they have undergone chemical processes designed to preserve their colour fastness, soft touch, and malleability. Although dried flowers have remarkable longevity, we estimate that a dried design should look its best for at least 18 months with minimal change; many enjoy their pieces beyond this timeframe but desire for a floral update is likely inevitable. The average lifespan of a dried flower design can of course be affected by environmental factors; consequently, to keep your piece in its best condition there are some simple care and conditioning recommendations to keep in mind:

  • Both dried and preserved flowers tend to fade over time, which we feel is part of their natural evolving beauty; however, to minimize colour change, we recommend placing your dried florals away from direct sunlight.
  • It is also important to avoid humid spaces, such as bathrooms, as excess moisture can cause leaf & flower damage. As a rule, we recommend that you place your dried floral design in a space with a consistent temperature. Due to the humidity risk, we recommend against storing dried wreaths in boxes for part of the year without adequate ventilation.
  • Delicate by nature, dried florals are best placed in positions where they are safe from wear and tear; consequently, the front door is not advisable for dried wreaths unless otherwise specified.
  • Dried flowers benefit from the occasional dusting. A hairdryer on its lowest, coolest setting is an effective dusting method.
