Here's Why You Should Never Display Dried Flowers in Your Home
Do you agree with this outlook?
Fresh flowers make our heart and homes sing, but do dried-out flowers drain our digs of energy and joy?
According to some experts, dried-out floral arrangements can indeed wreak havoc on our home's universal energy or "Chi" a concept in the Chinese philosophy of Feng Shui.
"Having strong Chi in your house is said to bring in positive energy, which will help you focus on your goals, and having bad Chi does the exact opposite, ushering in negative vibes," writes Danielle Tullo in a recent article for House Beautiful. "You know what has bad Chi? Dead flowers. The belief is that when flowers dry, they lose their Chi and drain a home's vitality."

Of course, some may disagree with this idea, and many take great joy in displaying dried-out flowers around their home, especially from meaningful life experiences like weddings, graduations, or simply a much-loved garden bounty.
To that point, Tullo shares the thoughts of Feng Shui consultant and author, Rodika Tchi, who wrote in an article for The Spruce, "Ask your heart what it is thinking about your dried flowers. If you feel beautiful, healing energy connected to them, then of course keep them and treat it in a special way."
