12 bouquets that will not wilt

A colorful bouquet is the perfect icing to make any room party ready. While I’m stocking up on fresh flowers to make our snowy weekend feel special, it can be sad to say goodbye when their time is up. I prefer flowers that stay fresh forever! Loving the idea of blooms made to last – especially when I don’t need to change their water. Here are 12 bouquets that will keep bright and festive all winter long.

    I absolutely love paper flowers! I helped a friend make hundreds of them for her wedding over the summer–origami ones of various kinds. They were such a hit!

    My mum’s always looking for a solution to wilting – her attempt to find the longest lasting flowers actually makes me laugh! These ideas are so good – I love the silk flowers and the pom poms, because they don’t actually look too ‘fake flowers’, but rather a decoration in their own terms! Also, the fabric flowers are incredibly innovative! Never would have thought!
