Attention, Hipsters: Dried Flowers are the New Cheese Plants

Pampas grass: not just for swingers.

Don't get us wrong, we still love a good palm tree. But there's something so utterly cosy about a vase of dried flowers at this time of year it makes us want to curl up, light a Dipytique candle and live our best (Insta) lives. 

While the trend has been brewing for a while, Mandy Moore's California-cool wedding last week sealed the deal. Forget the pink wedding dress, it was the peaches and cream hued pampas that enveloped the starlet's back yard that had us talking.

Styling can be quite classic, midcentury or totally contemporary – whichever you choose. According to the jet set – some are pairing a simple bunch of pampas grass against clean lines and concrete finishes, whilst others, see Instagrammer AnneLaure Mais Moreau, mixes hers with thrifted glassware, a midcentury modern leather sofa, and some love-worn fashion books and trinkets. 

All in all, if you're guilty of perennially killing your houseplants (hands up), this might be the trend for you. And if you're feeling mega thrifty you can always dry your own from summertime, in the meantime, there is always your local florist.
