Mother’s Day 2021: 6 Singapore Florists With Preserved Flowers For Everlasting Bouquets
Mother’s Day is fast approaching, and that means it’s almost time to shower one of the most important women in your life with some extra love and TLC. Fresh blooms are often a go-to for many; but gorgeous as they might be, these flowers often rarely withstand the test of time.
If you’re looking for something more everlasting, turn to dried or preserved flowers. These alternative blooms are not only low-maintenance and long-lasting, but are also still able to add life to your home with no less vibrancy as compared to fresh flowers.
Whether you opt for a sculptural arrangement of dried flowers or a realistic bouquet of preserved flowers that’ll last for years on end, these long-lasting blooms can serve as a symbol of everlasting love.
1/6 Floral Kokoro
The idea for Singapore-based botanical house Floral Kokoro was first conceived in New York City by founder and creative director Fuiyi Chong. Years later, the boutique is now recognised as one of the major game-changers in the floral market; their botanical arrangements are often sought after by international customers and even presented at Singapore Design Week.
If you prefer a bespoke touch, let Floral Kokoro do all the work for you. The floral atelier can create a customised preserved and dried flower vase arrangement based on your requests. Whether it’s drawing inspiration from a line of your favourite book, or having specific types of florals in mind, the boutique will customise and craft an impeccable arrangement.
2/6 The Floral Atelier
Known for creating luxurious and elegant floral arrangements, the Eternity collection from The Floral Atelier features preserved and dried blooms. Go for the classic route and opt for a medley of preserved roses in a chic box, or try something different with colourful eternity blooms ranging from lilac hydrangeas to orange fern leaves.
