When I buy flowers I always look for fresh blooms that will last the longest. You know the drill: Look for a bouquet with a few unopened buds and always grab a pack of the dissolvable flower food. Whether you’re picking up a grocery store bouquet for yourself or grabbing a pretty bouquet for a friend, you want the flowers to look their best. But what if we told you that some of the prettiest bouquets on the market right now will actually last for years? No, we’re not crazy; professionally-made dried flower arrangements are flooding the floral market right now, and the bouquets are incredible. 

People have been drying their own flowers at home for hundreds of years, but we’ve recently seen intricate dried bouquets available from major retailers. With proper care, these bouquets can last for years, and many of them are about the same price as a store-bought bouquet. Dried flowers are delicate, so you’ll need to display them somewhere they won’t be jostled around or touched very often. But unlike regular flowers, these bouquets don’t need to be trimmed or watered; just be sure to lightly dust them once a week to keep them looking their best. 

Most of the gorgeous arrangements from Urban Stems have been sold out for months, but they're finally back in stock! Here are some of our favorite dried flower arrangements you can have shipped directly to your doorstep.

Buy this for yourself or have it shipped directly to a friend to let them know you're thinking about them.

Orange Hydrangea Bouquet

Hydrangeas are one of our favorite blooms, but they’re only in season a few months of the year. With this large bouquet, you can display them in your home year-round. The arrangement measures about 11 inches tall and is made from dried and preserved hydrangea, eucalyptus, and assorted botanical stems. Each bouquet is arranged by hand, so they’ll all be slightly different.
