Floral Design Tip: Are Dried Ingredients Worth The Hype?!




Ok, ok. You see them EVERYWHERE! Dried ingredients are all the craze again this year. Even with their pricy tag, they seem to make their way into every Pinterest photo. Today we’re taking a look at all the pros and cons and we’re asking is it really worth it to invest in dried ingredients?!

PROS: Obviously, dried ingredients are CUTE! They’re different than what we’re used to seeing and they are full of awesome texture!  Another reason I loooove dried ingredients?! They last a long time! These little babies have a great shelf life and truly are the gift that keeps on giving!

CONS: But we can’t talk about dried ingredients without at least mentioning some of their cons. First and foremost, they can shed. Usually, a few quick sprays of hairspray can keep them in check. They also tend to be a little bit more on the pricy side. This has a lot to do with the fact that the supply and demand for this is so high. 
So, are investing in dried ingredients really worth it? That is entirely up to you, my friend! But my two cents? You’ll continue to love your dried ingredients for days to come. Yes, they might be a little bit on the pricy end, but they continue to bring joy in my home even years after investing in some of it. If you’re really on the fence about it, purchase a bouquet with both dried and fresh ingredients. Once your fresh flowers have passed on, you can still enjoy the dried goodies for weeks and months to come!
