Rather than forking out on fresh flowers or opting for longer-lasting artificial blooms, beautiful dried grasses are the new go-to for savvy home stylists.

Nobody wants to live their life with empty vases sitting around the home, but if you can't keep up with the expense and effort of fresh cut flowers every week, what's a person to do? While artificial flowers are becoming more realistic, they're still far from ideal and all that plastic doesn't make for the most eco-friendly option. 

Instead, why not choose a beautiful dried flower bouquet? They might cost a little bit more than the average floral display, but not only do they offer a long-lasting alternative to cut flowers, they're also super on-trend with the wave of rustic-style schemes and warm neutral colours taking over our homes.
