Freeze dried petals are in fact real petals and no, they’re not frozen. Don’t let the name fool you! The word “freeze” in freeze dried petals refers to the drying method. The drying method removes the moisture and preserves the petals at their peak. Dried petals and fresh petals look very similar however, the dried petals are a little more delicate. One of the biggest benefits of freeze dried petals is that they can be reused throughout the year if cared for properly. Keep in mind, over time their vibrancy may start to fade. Dried petals are also biodegradable, which makes them perfect for an outdoors ceremony. At FiftyFlowers, we have a large selection of colors to pick from as well as fun and unique color combinations. Other than Roses, we also carry Hydrangea petals too, which can be ordered for delivery well before your event.
The best way to store the petals is in a dark, cool place. Follow the care instructions below to ensure your petals look great on your big day!
