Schedule

01

Book your Date

As soon as you have your date for your wedding or celebration go ahead and secure your flower preservation with us! Visit the "reserve your date" page and follow the link to our online order form. Once we receive your form you will receive a confirmation email followed by a Paypal invoice to secure your date.  

Drop-off or Ship

After your event, make sure your flowers are in a safe place and the stems are in a few inches of water. If you are able, keep them refrigerated so the blooms stay as fresh as possible! 

Drop-off is available for those local to Central Arkansas, in NLR, 72118.

If you are not local to Arkansas, shipping your flowers overnight (especially in the summer) is recommended. Detailed shipping instructions will be sent to those who need to overnight their flowers.

Please make arrangements with a trusted friend or family member to either drop-off or ship your special flowers after your event.

The Preservation

Once I receive your blooms, the preservation process begins! I carefully disassemble your arrangement and meticulously press the most beautiful of each type of flower and  greenery. This process can take up to 3 hours.  Depending on the type of bloom, different pressing techniques are used to ensure they come out of the press beautifully every time. Your flowers must be kept in the press for at least 4 weeks to fully dry. 

Arrangement and Display

After 4 weeks in the press it is time for your flowers to be unloaded and prepped for display. Yay!

I will organize your pieces by bloom and foliage type then begin work on your arrangement. Depending on what type and size of displays you choose, I will select the appropriate amount of items for each piece. Some blooms will be reconstructed after pressing which helps create the most beautiful preserved flowers possible. I will use my design intuition to layout the most esthetic arrangement to create your beautiful pieces. Trust your artist on this process, rest assured you will be glad you did! Once satisfied with the layout I will either secure your arrangement for framing or start the resin process. This arrangement process can take up to 4 hours to complete. Resin pieces will then take at least one week to complete the layers and curing process. You will receive photos of your completed displays once they are ready!

Receiving your finished products

After the entire process of around 3-5 months, you will receive an email with professional photos of your final pieces. Arrangements will be made for local pick-up at your convenience or your items will be carefully packaged and shipped based on previously discussed plans. 

Your beautiful and cherished forever displays will be well worth the wait!
