With the holidays upon us, there aren’t enough hours in the day to do all the things I want to do. Last month, while revisiting season one of Full Bloom (anyone else obsessed with this show?), I decided to practice my floral arranging hobby and create my holiday centerpieces well before the holiday season began. I pulled together arrangements filled with juniper bushes, tallow berries, bell grass—all dried and preserved florals from Bloomist. The arrangements look as beautiful as the day I put them together.
Preserved florals are perfect for those of us who want to work ahead of time or keep arrangements looking fresh and beautiful for an entire season. Floral arranging can be an expensive hobby and, quite frankly, I’m not anywhere near the skill level where I can justify the costs of having fresh arrangements on display all the time. This is where preserved florals come in handy, and the selection and quality of preserved florals at Bloomist is beyond what you’ll find anywhere else.
When designing, I tend to keep three things in mind: height, mass, and pop. Much like designing a room, I focus on one element and use the other two to complement.
Yes, it’s that simple. Using the three elements above, you can let your creativity run wild.
Here are a few ideas to incorporate preserved florals in your holiday decorating (and save yourself some time in the process!):
Preserved and faux florals are having a moment. I love the way the designs look and how long they last. Love the idea of dried florals, but not feeling your skills? Bloomist also has an array of stunning, pre-made dried floral bouquets.
P.S. In addition to the vast selection of quality dried and faux florals, Bloomist also has a broad array of artisan-made gifts!
