flower care | transport
The best way to keep your flowers fresh over the weekend is water and cold air! If a fridge is available, store the flowers in a vase of water with the stems submerged in 2-3 inches of fresh water. Please note that you do not need to drown out the stems..to much water in the vase will actually rot and mildew the stems! Change the water daily to keep the water fresh. Remove any rosaries attached or special memento's that are have been tucked away in the bouquet.
If a refrigerator is not available, you can store the flowers in a vase of fresh water, away from any direct sunlight and in a very ventilated room with the air condition on low!
Flower Transport is easy! When hauling the flowers to our studio, wrap the stems in a damp paper towel to keep the flowers hydrated during the car ride. Place the flowers in the back seat away from any direct sunlight!
Process | TIMELINE
Once we receive your flowers, we document + log the flower types, condition, variety, colors etc. We then pull the bouquet apart and group like flowers with like flowers to press or sand.
For the next 4-6 weeks we monitor moisture levels and change paper, Please note that flower preservation is never a guarantee, not every single flower will press’s to perfect condition. All flowers take to the press differently as one flower of the same class might press better than the next.
Flowers such as lithiansus, delphinium, roses and peonies are problematic due to the many layers and may or may not take to the press. We do, however, press + sand the entire bouquet to ensure that we will have enough options to give to you!
After the 4-6 weeks of logging paper changes and climate control, we transfer your flowers to our pending orders press. Your flowers will remain in this press until we can get to it and fill your order.
When your order is ready to be filled, we will connect with you to start the creative | design process! We pull your order form along with your client agreement (which you mailed to us when you booked us) and we see which design options you chose. We take your best flowers that pressed out and create different picture proofs according to the options that you selected in your order form. Once you decide on the proofs you would like for us to create, we can then make any final edits/changes before completing your piece!
Floral preservation is a delicate, labor intensive process; it is custom artwork that cannot be rushed. Due to high volume of orders + processing time, total timeline averages 3 months from start to finish.
