We love to preserve YOUR flowers
Flowers are often a gift or representation of a special moment or time and weddings are one of our most exciting moments with flowers involved. I love to preserve or press wedding bouquets and make them into a memorable piece of art for your home.
If you would like an alternative way to keep your wedding bouquet preserved and on display I can also create jewelry pieces or resin wares like coasters, clocks and trays for your home using your flowers.
Although weddings are a common floral event, we can press flowers from any event that you would like to commemorate and preserve the memory of. Details below will give you some ideas of what you can do with your flowers and just fill out the form below with your contact information and we will get this organized!
WHAT CAN WE DO WITH YOUR FLOWERS?
I am a multifaceted artist and can create almost anything you can dream up using your flowers.
When it comes to framing there is huge variety of options available. One that has become popular with bouquet preservation is the shadowbox. The flowers are 3D preserved and arranged in the shadowbox. Your bouquet is almost as beautiful and full of life as the day of your wedding.
I am always collecting beautiful vintage frames and enjoy using them for my custom wedding pieces. I can create arrangements with your flowers using high grade paper. Darker shades of paper can be a great contrast, lighter colored wedding flowers will pop out against the subtle background.
An alternate framing option would be to use a floating frame, this will allow the flowers to float in between two pieces of glass. Both designs can be created in a vintage frame or a newer style wood or modern frame and can include other parts of your special event such as ribbons, announcements or invitations.
This is a great alternative for bouquet display. Put your pressed wedding flowers in glass locket necklaces. These lockets are functioning and can be opened and closed, while flowers are secured inside. This is so great for yourself and also as a gift for loved ones involved in the event or perhaps that weren’t able to attend. Often there are a lot of flowers in the bouquets and this is an easy add on to a larger bouquet art piece.
I started my work in framing and paper but I have also ventured out into using resin as a medium. This really does allow us to make anything from spoons to cake trays, clocks, coasters... and more. Some ideas in the photos of products we offer and can make using your flowers. Personalize by adding your new name or wedding date with copper wire writing.
Although this page is dedicated to bouquet preservation, want to take a quick side step regarding wedding decor! Create pieces using your flowers and/or colors in food safe resin pieces for your big day. These pieces can add more enchantment to your decor through flower table numbers, cake plates or wedding favors such as spoons and coasters. We have even created a guest book that doubled as a press so guests could pick a flower and write a message next to it. Bring your wildest idea to me and we will see what we can make!
How Do I Get the Flowers to You?
If you are local to Dallas, TX area, I am happy to make arrangements to get flowers from your or a family member after the event. If not, no worries! You can easily mail them to me. Best to mail your flowers as soon as possible, right after the event. Best to package tight where there is not a lot of room for the flowers to move around but also the flowers are free from being pushed up against anything. I can advise you specifically depending on your bouquet style or flowers that you have. I have had flowers sent to me and received within the week and still perfectly ready for pressing. I have also had flowers given to me 2 weeks after the event and even already dried! So never fear, we can get it done! Just reach out with your name, contact and details and I will be in contact shortly.
Thank you for your inquiries! I look forward to helping preserve your special memory.
