Hops?

Perhaps they are from the Chinese Lantern plant (physalis alkekengi), also known as the winter or bladder cherry? It can be invasive, so is best grown in a pot or a contained garden. But I'm not sure that's what it is...

Print the photo and take it to the best florist in town. Maybe they can tell you?

I was going to say green chinese lantern, but the shape of the flower is a little different....

There is a vine called Wild Cucumber here that has green pods like that. Also there is an annual vine found in green houses and grown from seed called "Love In a Puff". The stems in the pic look rather sturdy for vines tho. Are you sure they are dried pods? Maybe some type of fruit or seed pod from a tree or shrub.

Not Chinese lanterns. I have them in my garden. Wrong shape, color, form on stalks. Are you sure they are a "real" plant and not some stylized creation?

It might be Asclepias physocarpa or Asclepias fruticosa, commonly known as Milkweed.

They look like green plums.

It looks like the designer responds to all questions; I'd post there.
