Paris is a city renowned for its culture and strong tourist appeal, its restaurants and concept stores, and as the capital of romance, it has many markets or shops selling flowers. Whether you live in the heart of France's capital, or are only there for a weekend, it can sometimes be difficult to know which shops to turn to for getting quality dried flowers that will brighten up your home.

That's why we've created this article, to tell you about our products, from dried flower arrangements to vintage wreaths and DIY kits to create your own decorative items.

Why buy dried flowers?

There are several reasons for choosing a bouquet of dried flowers rather than fresh flowers.

Firstly, dried flowers are a great way to add colour, life and vintage charm to any space. In addition to being trendy, they can also fit in with any style, interior design universe, as long as you choose them carefully!

Buying dried flowers can also be considered cheaper than buying fresh flowers, as they will last for years if stored properly.

In addition, fresh flowers require a different, and more substantial, maintenance, with less durability. Fresh flowers need to be watered on a daily basis by changing the water in their vases, whereas dried flowers do not require watering. As we said, fresh flowers have a short life span, but you can enjoy your dried flowers for years. Want to know more? Discover 5 reasons to use dried flowers in your home.

Buyers often overlook this fact when purchasing flowers for their home or office. If you want your flowers to last, you have to store them properly. Good flower shops will therefore not only offer you a range of beautiful dried flowers, but also proper storage advice. This way you can enjoy the benefits of a beautiful home or office without having to worry about your dried flowers deteriorating after a few months.

This makes dried flower bouquets an excellent decoration for second homes, for example: if you leave them in good condition, they will still look great when you return!

Dried flowers also lend themselves well to DIY and can also be very easily integrated into accessories: if you like art, have a creative spirit and a small workshop, it is totally possible to create objects based on dried flowers, such as making your own flower candle.

Finally, the last difference lies in the simple visual aspect of the flowers: some will tend to prefer the delicate fragrance of fresh flowers, others the natural charm of a dried flower wreath.
And clearly, no one is wrong: there is no accounting for taste!

Moreover, decorating your flat with a composition of living plants, fresh flowers and dried flowers can be done completely and give a real natural and colourful touch to your interior.

Our advice on dried flowers

Once dry, plants require much less daily maintenance and last much longer. However, it is necessary to know the right practices to maintain them in order to enjoy their natural beauty in your home for a long time!

Here is a short list of measures to take to keep your flowers in good condition on a daily basis:

Firstly, it is important not to put water in the vases, as bouquets or bunches of dry plants can be kept dry. Putting water in the vases will rehydrate them, and they will tend to get mouldy. Also, vases can sometimes retain moisture, so keep an eye on them and change them if necessary.

Secondly, it is advisable not to put them in direct sunlight, as this could fade their brilliant colours. It would be a shame to dull that beautiful pink or bright white!

Thirdly, a dry flower will prefer a quiet place, sheltered from temperature changes, gales or possible bullies who could damage them!

Finally, to remove the dust, we recommend using a hair dryer, at moderate power and on cold mode. As mentioned above, you should not dampen your dry plants, and using a feather duster could break them!
