If you're having a hard time keeping potted plants alive, why not prettify your office desk with some dried flowers? Contrary to popular belief, dried flowers can make for striking decorations—and they're perfect for home offices that have little natural light. Withered flowers must be kept away from direct sunlight to keep them from drying out further. While these beauties don't need watering, you'll need to regularly dust them to keep them clean!
Here are a couple of dried floral arrangements you can shop for online:
