Floral Preservation

What are my framing choices?2019-07-07T00:47:33-06:00

I like to approach each project on an individual basis. However I do offer basic parameters: two styles of framing, the Modern Botanical or Classic with Float Mount. A variety of color choices: gallery black, bone white, natural maple, oak with charcoal, rosewood, or pecan stain. In addition I love the look of wrought iron and iron frames.

Bouquet preservation cost?2019-11-05T12:37:55-07:00

The investment of preserving your flowers begins at $750

It is helpful to have a centerpiece or two in addition to your bouquet. Wreath sets require more. All white flowers will not work. However large grapevine wreaths filled with greenery are beautiful.

The $750 investment includes: One on one consultation, photo update with project proposal, finished art with your choice of framing design and material. Dried floral wreath (s) can be added to your order for an additional $120 or purchased as a custom set for our minimum.

How do you create your art work?2019-11-05T12:46:24-07:00

In short, I deconstruct the design then the individual blooms to either press or air dry. Once pressed then dried, I arrange them to create a one-of-a-kind design.

Flowers are mounted too glass or natural white 300 lb water color paper then taken to a local company, Colorado Frames.  I use a premium craft glue and new packaging materials for shipping. Please connect so we can discuss more! 

Which flowers work best for pressing?2019-11-05T12:58:07-07:00

Small open roses, rose petals, peony/petals, poppies, ranunculus, anemone, clematis, larkspur, delphinium, queen Ann’s lace, asrantia, tulip petals, lily petals, and many types of leaves in all different colors. It’s best to have a wide variety of smallish local blooms.
