Best Dried Flowers To Beautify Your Home

The Spruce / Brian Kopinski

It can be hard to keep things alive, especially plants. But even if you don’t have the greenest of thumbs, you can still experience the liveliness of flowers in your home. Introducing: dried flowers. Unlike their fake counterparts, these flowers were once fresh flowers that have been preserved through a dehydrating drying method. They come in a variety of types and styles, exuding a rustic charm that will instantly elevate your tablescape or mantel.

Beyond their look, dried flowers can also be a smarter investment than fresh flowers, as they last longer and can carry you through all four seasons. “Mother Nature is the world’s best designer, and with dried flowers, you can admire her handiwork even in the dead of winter,” says designer Jonathan Adler, who likes to use his line of vases for just that. “You can invest in one beautiful bouquet knowing it will surpass the typical two weeks a fresh one lasts," adds Larisa Barton, Owner of Soeur Interiors.

To help you in your search, we researched some of the top dried flower options on the market, considering their style, quality, and preservation methods. Our favorite picks include options from Afloral, Bloomist, Terrain, and more.

What to Look for in Dried Flowers


When choosing your dried flowers, make sure you consider the style that you want. Some flowers are more boho chic, while others can add a pop of color to tie a room together, like the craspedia billy buttons from Afloral. Barton adds, “There is a certain organic whimsy that dried flowers innately have that fresh flowers don't. They are softer with their muted colors, so they add enough texture without being overwhelming.” Think about that when you select your style.


As with style, you want to think about what kind of dried flowers you are looking for. If you want something to fill in a bouquet, Roxanne’s Dried Flowers has a phalairs that makes for a grassy addition. On the other hand, a bright and bursting flower can attract the focus of a bouquet, much like the IdleWild’s sherbert two tone silver daisies.


One of the most important things to look for in dried flowers is where they are coming from. As the floral industry is known to have a big environmental footprint, look for brands that are getting their flowers responsibly and ethically. Essentially, you want to find brands that locally source flowers, and ensure they aren’t heat-treated, bleached and chemically hardened, or coated with water-soluble plastic.

  • How long do dried flowers last?

    According to the majority of flower retailers, dried flowers can last anywhere from one to three years. Depending on the type and treatment, they can have a lifespan that far surpasses what you would expect.

  • Are dried flowers better than fresh flowers?

    Adler sums up the main difference between dried flowers and fresh ones. He says, “Two words: low maintenance.” Succinctly put, if you prefer your flowers to last, then dried flowers are the way to go. They also "have the sustainability factor that fresh flowers can't beat," adds Barton.

  • What’s the best way to style dried flowers?

    Again, Adler weighs in on how to style your flowers, saying, “When I’m fluffing florals, I like to think beyond Grandma’s Gladiolus and keep it to one type of flower in one color in a tight bunch. Personally, I’m partial to peonies.” There are also vases to consider. “I personally love using an oversized vintage vessel and filling it with a monochromatic dried bundle. It is the perfect styling element for an entry console to welcome guests into your home, says Barton.

  • Can you dry your own flowers?

    You can, if you hang them upside down in a dark and dry, well-ventilated area. Keep them out of the direct sunlight to help them retain their color. After two or three weeks, take them down, and spray them with unscented hairspray.
