Has anyone worked with dried flowers? I plan on using dried floral for my centerpieces and would like to gradually start buying supplies for my fall of 2012 wedding. Problem is I’m not sure how well they will hold up over a years time? Will they crumble too easy? Start to droop? I obviously don’t want anything to go to waste….so any advice would be GREATLY appreciated!

I would wait. My experiences says they collect dust (no one wants to smell dusty flowers all night) if you place them in totes and moisture gets in mildew (no basements or humid laundry rooms). If it is too hot they crumble more (no attics). Stocking piling them in my house ie LR became a problem so I gave up. If you have a good place to store them go for it. I just didn’t.

Yah you are probably right. I was just gonna keep them in my basement…but they arent SUPER expensive….so my bank account wont be taking to big a hit if i wait until a month or two before…rather than a year. Thanks for your help!

We used dried lavender and it lasted fine for the 3 months we had it (even in a Texas summer!) I’m not sure how a whole year would work.
We just made sure to store them so they weren’t laying on their side or would be bumped
