Lockdown saw more people than ever filling their homes with plants and flowers, and we understand why.

Living around plants brightens our mood, as well as our rooms, and can inject life, colour and fun into our space.

However, as lockdown 3.0 comes to an end and the promise of normal life tantalises us on the horizon, the question is: how do we continue to look after our plants when we're not at home to tend to their needs 24/7?

Luckily, dried flowers have become the latest interior trend you need to know about.

They come in all shapes, sizes and colours. They can be organised - and reorganised - into quirky, show-stopping arrangements and they need zero watering.

What's more, as we look to weddings of 2021 and 2022, dried flowers are set to be bigger than ever, being fashioned as bridal bouquets that’ll last forever, backdrops and centrepieces.

In short, dried flowers aren't going anywhere.

So, if you fancy kitting your home out, here are our favourite places to shop for them.

5 of the best places to buy dried flowers

Anthropologie | Shop here

Unsurprisingly for the high street’s chic destination for homeware, Anthropologie often has dried bouquets in its edits.

However, you'll need to be quick as their dried bunches often sell out just as quick as they go online.
