How to decide if you need fresh, preserved, or artificial flowers

At Dianthus Miami, we’re lucky enough to work with a huge variety of clients: from cruise ships to private yachts and event venues. Every client has different needs, but when you’re just starting to work with a new florist, the choice on offer can be overwhelming. So to help you out, here’s a quick guide to the fresh, preserved, and artificial flowers we offer.

Pros and cons of fresh flowers

Fresh flowers are always popular. They’re beautiful, they smell great, and they show people that you really care about creating a beautiful environment. Freshly cut flowers can elevate a venue from every day to fairytale. And with Dianthus Miami, our fresh flowers really are fresh: we work with local growers and providers to bring fresh flowers to you, wherever you are.

However, even the freshest flowers can’t last forever. You’ll need to refresh them regularly with clean water or new blooms. And flowers with a strong scent can trigger allergies or sensory issues for some people. That’s when we recommend…

Pros and cons of preserved flowers

Preserved flowers make for beautiful, elegant arrangements that will stand the test of time. They still have all the color and texture of fresh flowers, but they don’t need regular maintenance.

Preserved flowers are a great choice for events with a vintage aesthetic, or events that run over several days. However, they can still give off scent and dust, and maybe vulnerable to getting wet.

Pros and cons of artificial flowers

Artificial flowers are the gold standard for color with convenience. You don’t have to worry about watering them too much or too little, replacing tired blooms, or managing allergies and sensory issues. And our high-quality artificial flowers look just like the real thing. Depending on your event plans, then fresh, preserved, or artificial flowers may be the right choice for you. If you can’t decide, give us a call and we’ll help you find the perfect floral arrangement for your next cruise or event.
