The interior trend that is set to take off in 2021 is here in Melbourne

One major interior trend from 2020 is set to spread its wings and fly into the new year with us. What is it? Plenty of clues here – it is, of course, dried flowers. And the good news is that the GATHER team are on call for you any time you feel like brightening up someone’s life with an outstandingly beautiful, hand-crafted dried flower arrangement.

Can I get dried flowers delivered to me anywhere in Australia?

The answer to that is a resounding countrywide yes! GATHER deliver dried flowers to Melbourne / Sydney / Brisbane / Perth / Darwin / Adelaide, and more.

Dried flower arrangements, wreaths, and bridal bouquets are officially back from the dead, sweeping aside fresh flower bouquets and pot plants at events, weddings, hotel lobbies, fashion shows, product launches, and restaurant entrances. Now that you know about it, you will start to notice the dried flower bouquet Renaissance everywhere!

Trend setters in Melbourne, and other Australian cities, are swapping out fresh for dried flowers because it makes sense budget-wise, beauty-wise, and the sustainability factor is off the charts. If you follow celebs or artists on social media, chances are you won’t get ten seconds into their social media feed before coming across an image of a dried flower bouquet. And they probably didn’t even have to set foot outside their doors to get it, because... delivery!

Why do we feel guilty when we buy fresh flowers?

Dried flowers and dried flower bouquet deliveries in Melbourne are poised to become one of the biggest trends in 2021 for many reasons, but the single most important cause has to be this: buying fresh flowers just doesn’t tick all the right boxes anymore.

The great fresh flower buyer’s remorse began at the turn of the century. That was when consumers began to look away from generic “hothouse, long-stem, dozen red roses imported from Europe” clichés – it was all too redolent of the buying excesses of the previous era.

Air miles, unsustainable growing and harvesting methods, water waste and predictability were some of the more obvious reasons for the gradual change. But another big driving factor for us falling in love with dried flowers all over again was because dried flower options, especially home grown here in Australia, just kept growing and growing.

And we’re not just talking sweet little bunny tails, wispy pampas grass, and lavender here. Our range of Australian dried wild flowers encompasses Kangaroo Paw to banksia Menzies, and everything in between.
