Dried & Preserved Arrangements

The Crystal Collection

Representing great value, Native Floral Designs (NFD), has created a signature range of gorgeous dried and preserved flower arrangements called "The Crystal Collection." Inspired by the brilliant colour range of crystals and stones, the names of the arrangements reflect the colour of the crystal. For example, our "Rose Quartz" has pink hues and tones.  Each bouquet and arrangement is carefully handmade with natural products.  Our selection of dried and preserved flowers are long-lasting, highly durable, and low maintenance. Preserved flowers can last for years!

NFD provides educational detailed product cards with each arrangement that list the flowers used, and how to care and clean them. We always try to source eco-friendly products. Our arrangements suit a wide range of occasions from Birthday gifts to Home Decor. They come in many different shapes and sizes to suit every budget and are displayed in natural jute mesh bouquets or interchangeable vases of glass inside a a rustic wooden frame or metal watering cans etc. The bouquets allow you to use your own vase or container.  Arrangements are never glued or permanent - everything is removable, so they can be changed, added to, and are easily packaged for postage and handling (they are surprisingly hardy!).

There is some controversary surrounding the use of dried flowers as they are perceived as "dead". We disagree with this terminology, as when we're walking through a bush setting and see a "dead" or dried flower or plant, we don't say "Look at that ugly dead thing...", we say, "Oh! Look at the amazing colours and textures!".  As they say, "Beauty is in the eye of the beholder." If you have ever witnessed a dried paper daisy close when it's cooler and open when the room temperature is warmer, then you will understand what we mean......

Florists at NFD feel they are celebrating and respecting the exquisite beauty of nature through their inspired creations.

Remember that arrangements can be custom-made, using any colour theme, to compliment your home, office, occasion or function.  Phone, or send us an email enquiry today.

PLEASE NOTE:
This is only a product information page for a few of our products. To see the price and purchase these items, please click on the "Shop Now" link below.


In an effort to keep down the postal costs to the customer, NFD  sends the large bouquets in an extra large Australia Post packaging box. Unfortunately, it means the maximum length will be around 49 cm long. If you require longer stems, please advise us and we will arrange alternative packaging (at an added cost).

HINT: Use closed in vases (not clear glass) and place tissue paper etc. inside your vase to prop the short-stemmed bouquets up. No one will know the difference!
