Dried flower compositions

Dried flowers are the ideal solution to decorate apartments, or to give bouquets and other compositions in the absence of fresh flowers. At certain times of the year, for example, such as autumn or winter, it may be necessary to give compositions of dried flowers that last for a long time and that do not lose their scent and their color, as happens with those made with fresh flowers. Generally, the compositions of dried flowers, if well «built» and decorated, are appreciated like the fresh ones and can be used during ceremonies, but also as a gift to inaugurate the purchase of a new home or the opening of an activity.

Features


The compositions with dried flowers are decorations or decorations created using simply dried flowers. To make them, you need talent, patience, passion and skill. Once you have met these «requirements», creating a composition with dried flowers will seem like child’s play. The composition can have different shapes, which must be chosen and adapted to the environment or the occasion in which it will be placed or given as a gift. For domestic environments, dry pot compositions are used, to be placed, perhaps, on the sides of an equipped wall. The potted compositions can also be given as gifts for anniversaries or inaugurations. Other widely used dried flower compositions are bouquets, often given as gifts on birthdays or graduation parties, or used by brides who love rustic and frugal style ceremonies. The compositions of dried flowers also include garlands, concentric decorations that are generally used as decorative accessories in the apartment, as opposed to those with fresh flowers that are used, instead, in funerals. Dried flower wreaths are usually small in size and can be hung on the inside walls of the house, perhaps at the entrance.

Preparation

The preparation of a composition of dried flowers changes according to the shape you want to give it, since each type of decoration requires a specific technique. The compositions of dried flowers are divided, in fact, into active, passive and horizontal. This classification indicates the position of the dried flowers within the decoration. The active compositions have the flowers that rise upwards, the passive ones have them downwards and the horizontal ones, as the same term suggests, have the flowers that develop horizontally. The compositions of dried flowers in pots (both active, passive or horizontal) are created using a plastic vase (terracotta or red color or a color that is close to that of the flowers) to which a special sponge (sold by florists) will be added where the flower stems will be inserted buckets. Based on the positioning of the stems, a vegetative point and points of vegetation are distinguished. With the vegetative point technique, the stems will all converge in the central part of the sponge, while with that of the vegetation points, the stems will be inserted on various points scattered around the surface of the sponge. The most delicate technique and which presents, perhaps, the greatest degree of difficulty, is that of the vegetative point, because it will be necessary to be careful to make the different stems converge exactly in the sponge, deciding a priori the orientation, which will be used to create particular shapes, such as triangles, round hair or cones. Dried flower bouquets are created by screwing the stems of dried flowers two by two onto a wire. The various bunches will then be arranged in a convex shape in order to give them the shape of a bouquet. The wire bindings can be hidden by wrapping the bouquet with colored crepe paper and tied with a bow. The dried flower wreath is created by screwing the seedlings onto a concentric circle formed by sturdy wire with a wire. To avoid leaving the iron parts uncovered, dried flowers must completely cover the surface of the same circle. To secure them, use green or brown electrical tape, which is available from florists.

Dried flower compositions: Maintenance and costs

Even the compositions of dried flowers, to last a long time, need adequate care and maintenance. Usually, these decorations end up getting dusty. Dust can be removed using a hair dryer or placing the jars outside, perhaps on a dry and windy day. To prevent the same compositions from discolouring, it is advisable to place them away from direct sunlight, while to avoid the formation of mold it is advisable to keep them away from humid environments and heat sources. The ideal environment for keeping dried flower compositions for a long time is ventilated, cool or temperate and dry. Anyone wishing to buy dried flower arrangements should know that they cost quite a bit. A composition with a ceramic vase can cost, in fact, even 80 euros, but it is a large decoration, weighing about three kilos. The small compositions of dried flowers for the home, on the other hand, cost around 15 euros.
