Helichrysum, also known as strawflower or everlasting flower are back in fashion! What goes around, comes around…and that’s certainly the case with this particular dried flower variety as more and more florists are starting to showcase them in beautiful designs.
Grace & Thorn recently added a new dried flower range called ‘Some Things Do Last Forever’ to their ‘Ready to Wear’ wedding collection, which features Helichrysum. The range includes a bridal bouquet, long and low arrangement, and floral crown, plus buttonholes, wrist corsages and jars.
Helichrysum featured in Gee from Bloom and Burn’s special Valentine’s Day bouquet called ‘Everlasting Love’. Emily from Fleuropean included them recently in one of her stunning arrangements. And Bex from Botanical Tales used them in this beautiful wreath.
So, perhaps, if you’re not already, you may like to also consider adding them to your repertoire?
P.S. I bought the ivory strawflowers which feature in the blog post from Porters Foliage at New Covent Garden Flower Market. But there are many more different colours available…
