When you want to give a beautiful, long-lasting gift that offers a refreshing change of pace, try dried bouquets. These preserved arrangements of blooms and foliage offer stunning colors and unique textures that are difficult to find in fresh flowers. Whether it’s the shaggy-yet-straight silhouette of pampas grass or the bold greens of dried willow eucalyptus, these stems are products of imaginative and intentional design. This is because the florist gets to dye the foliage and blooms to a specific color, gaining more control over the final product instead of banking on seasonal availability. This color stability also means that when you take care of a dried bouquet, it can last for years. Which ones are the best to give this fall? Here is a sample of some of this season’s favorites.
Perfect for “just because” gifts, housewarming, or a little treat for yourself, stems of dried pampas grass in their natural color are excellent decor for the fall. When you get a gift like The Pampas, you get a neutral piece that can dress up your home throughout the year. In the summer, it can balance out bright colors or enhance nautical themes. In the fall, the natural tan color of pampas grass blends so well with the rich burgundy, orange, and purple hues that are iconic of the season. Take this bundle of grass and let them stand alone in a vase of your choosing — the level of upgrade is up to you. Whether you choose a clear glass vase or a luxe charcoal artisan vase, this dried arrangement looks good alone or mixed with some fresh fall blooms from your garden.
When you want the right combination of soft, playful, and cheerful, dried bunny tails will complete your fall bouquet.

They can also be dyed in a variety of long-lasting colors to create a custom color scheme for fall. With long, thin stems topped with fuzzy “poofs” that look just like rabbit tails, this plant adds whimsical beauty to many dried arrangements. Here are some of our favorites with these stems:
Fall is a season that comes with a lot of change. The lush green and bright, colorful flowers of summer make way for changes of color in the sky and surrounding foliage. As the leaves transform from green, yellow, red, to brown, so do the types of seasonal flowers change. Dominant colors shift from bright pinks and blues to more iconic autumn hues like orange, yellow, and gold. When you browse dried bouquets for fall decorating, you’re sure to find these colors in season. Since dried flowers can be custom-dyed to meet your styling needs, this makes it even easier to find these hues available at this time of year.
If you want a dried bouquet that will turn heads, look to the color pink. No matter what type of flowers and foliage you choose, this color ensures that your arrangement makes a statement in any room it's in. Modern and feminine, pink dried arrangements add a touch of luxury to your space.
