)-- Preserved flower and herb displays are a great alternative during colder months when fresh blooms are hard to come by. Permanent or preserved flowers make any space feel as though it has been given a decorator’s touch. Flowers and herbs add color, texture and cheerful display all year long in a bedroom, dining room, kitchen or a hallway.
Sturbridge Yankee Workshop features a wide assortment of both permanent and preserved florals on their website and in the pages of their catalog. Let’s take a look a just a few of the options that they have available.
Naturally dried wreaths and arrangements offer handcrafted appeal. Sturbridge’s Lavender Country Wreath features soft color combinations of larkspur, eucalyptus, lavender phalaris, white sinuata and English lavender.
For a smaller footprint, petite Chickadees Wreath features dried salal leaves and cedar combined with faux juniper berries and two tiny chickadees crafted from feather-like materials.
As bright as an April day in Paris, Spring Blooms Wreath features black flax, pink larkspur, green hydrangea and ferns in a cheerful combination complete with wire-edged burlap ribbon for display.
Not interested in flowers? Sturbridge also has dried herbs and edible plants that have been perfectly preserved at the peak of freshness. Dining rooms and kitchens benefit from these gastronomic displays. Full of zest and color, Culinary Herb Wreath showcases purple oregano, yarrow, bay leaves, artichokes, cherry peppers, sage, and safflower.
Just right for shoulder seasons, Apple Centerpiece will waft hints of cinnamon around the room when first received. Versatile Cucina Herb Basket offers bold color when hanging on a wall or sitting on display with dried chili, oregano, sage, lavender, safflower and yarrow.
Sturbridge recommends these tips for first time buyers of preserved arrangements:
1. Keep the arrangement away from direct sunlight, heat and humidity
2. Some settling during shipping may occur; this does not damage the beauty of your display
3. Take care when lightly dusting as the dried flowers and herbs are very delicate
4. Keep your display covered when not in use to prevent dust and debris accumulation
