The Ultimate Guide to Preserved Flowers: Long-lasting Beauty for Every Occasion

Preserved flowers have become an eco-friendly alternative to fresh flowers, offering timeless beauty that stands the test of time. These preserved flowers undergo a unique preservation process that allows them to retain their natural charm and vibrant colours for a prolonged period, making them a good and eco-friendly alternative for any occasion. 

In this guide, we want to share with you the advantages and benefits of preserved flowers, as well as how to select the right preserved flowers for you, your loved ones or for upcoming events! We hope this article will give you a better idea on how you can incorporate preserved flowers for either home/event decor and memorable celebrations!

Advantages of Preserved Flowers

Preserved flowers undergo a precise preservation process that allows the flowers to maintain their original appearance, texture, and colour for an extended period of time. Unlike fresh flowers that wither within days, preserved flowers are made to be long-lasting, so that you can reuse and repurpose them as you like. Furthermore, preserved flowers are allergy-friendly, as they do not produce pollen, making them suitable for people who are susceptible to pollen sensitivities. At Moon Fleur, we are big on being eco-friendly – preserved flowers are the best way for us to care for the environment while producing the same results at the same time.
