How to store and look after dried and preserved flowers.

The trick is to keep them away from any harsh environments. This means they need to be somewhere dry and out of direct sunlight.

Dried and preserved flowers can be delicate so be careful not to squash them!

For wedding or occasion accessories, I always recommend they are stored away until you will be using them. This just ensures they stay at their best for as long as possible. I send my items out in sturdy postal boxes which are ideal for storing them in.

If you are using dried or preserved flowers as room decor keeping them away from direct sunlight may be hard. They will still be ok but their colour will fade a lot quicker. As dried and preserved flowers do not like water it’s best to avoid placing them in rooms such as the bathroom and kitchen where there is likely to be moisture.
