French term or phrase: tableaux en fleurs sechees naturelles
This is just one item in a list of things in a ski resort town. There's no other context, unfortunately. "Tableaux en fleurs sechees naturelles"
Does this mean, "Boxes of naturally dried flowers" or is it "Paintings/Pictures of naturally dried flowers" Or is there some totally different meaning? Thanks in advance.

English translation:picture composed of natural, dried flowers
Explanation:
This is a picture *made out of* ("en") dried flowers (probably glued onto some kind of matting board. It could even been pressed flowers mounted between two sheets of parchment paper, clear plastic, etc. A number of decorative craft items are made of dried flowers: lampshades, place mats, page markers... and most definitely, items made to hang on walls.

1. Dried flower pictures. 2. Pictures from dried flowers


Explanation:
flowers, being from nature, is understood, and you need not include naturelles.

we are assuming these are floral arrangements and do not depict a scene. If they do, write scenes made from dried flowers.
