Dried flowers can be a beautiful and inexpensive way to decorate any room. With their soft, muted colours, amazing varieties and availability year-round, it's hard to beat dried flowers as a decorating option. While almost any dried floral arrangement offers a burst of colour to a room, tall dried floral arrangements offer something special to a spot. These floral clusters can fit where others don't. When thinking about how to decorate that difficult to fill spot, consider a tall dried floral arrangement.

Start in the entryway. Very often there is a small corner right by the door that's very narrow. It's difficult to decorate, but would look great if it could be jazzed up. In this case, a bouquet of vibrant colours standing next to an umbrella stand would a nice option.
Consider placing two tall arrangements on a table that sits under an entryway hall mirror. The flowers should flank both sides of the mirror, giving the area both a shot of colour and visual symmetry.
Place a tall dried floral arrangement between two chairs in the corner of a living room. Clusters of odd-numbered items tend to look great, so you might stand two tall floral arrangements--each of slightly different heights--next to the floor lamp. The flowers plus the chairs create a focal point for the room.
Remember the built in shelf near the ceiling. Often the space between the shelf and the ceiling is several feet. Flowers, particularly ones placed on the corner of the shelf, act as a bright visual anchor to the space.
Design a shadow box using tall dried flowers. It's still a floral arrangement, but housed in something other than a vase. Several shadow boxes with dried flowers of various lengths in a picture gallery offer a different look than would otherwise be created by just hanging pictures alone.
Take the arrangement outside. A sun porch is a natural choice for dried floral arrangements. Already so close to nature, these spaces benefit from bringing a little bit of the outdoors inside. As with the living room, a tall arrangement looks great next to a corner chair, but it also adds height to displays made with pumpkins and gourds, gardening tools and other items made for the great outdoors.
Decorating with Tall Dried Floral Arrangments
Tips and warnings
- Many home stores offer a great variety of ready-made arrangements. Assess the needs of the area to be decorated to find the right floral arrangement for the spot.
- If you want to create your own arrangements, remember, single bloom flowers like roses or tulips are usually the focal points of any arrangement. That said, arrange the flowers as your eyes find appealing, not what is right by the rules.
- Choose a vase that goes well with the types of dried flowers being used in the arrangement, and think about other ways to display dried flowers besides in a vase. These add a unique one-of-a-kind feel to the arrangement.
- If you're not sure how to get started, home and garden magazines offer a great starting point. You could try to copy the arrangements that you see, adding your own touches for a unique twist.
