Preserving Springtime Flowers

Spring is a time of new beginnings. This is represented most prominently in nature with the emergence of fresh life. The entire palette of a garden is in stark contrast to the winter, with a veritable feast of colors and varieties of horticulture to feast your eyes upon.  Unfortunately, as quick as they bloom they seem to disappear again, but now that needn’t be the case. All your hard work planting and tending to your precious petals can be saved by modern methods of preservation. These imaginative preservation pieces make a thoughtful gift for a green-fingered relative or an exceptional interior design addition to your own home.  Either way, you can create an original and elegant preservation of dainty springtime flowers that will last all year round.

Preserving The Natural Beauty

So you have created the equivalent of an English country garden in your home, and you would love to be able to choose and arrange some of the most stunning examples to keep forever. There are many options available to you from exciting artists that will create one-of-a-kind pieces to be treasured.

You may wish to have your bouquet preserved in the exact design you have created. The way you can do this is through a process called freeze drying. This gradually removes the moisture from petals whilst leaving the natural shape and color intact. These items are them presented in bubble cases which can be displayed on walls, in sophisticated glass boxes, domes or ornaments. It basically freezes the plants in time so they can be enjoyed all year round.

Another more traditional option is to have your springtime arrangements pressed in a Victorian style. The compression of these petals results in delicate decorations that are stunning to behold. The item is tailored to your fashion, skillfully placing the flowers on your choice of paper and including photographs if desired.

Lastly, if you prefer wearable art, you are able to create bespoke items of jewelry. Your springtime flowers will be able to brighten your day wherever and whenever by having the petals worked into ornate glass beads that house within them the unique hues of your very own garden. This can be in a pair of earrings, cufflinks, bracelets – all in numerous styles to suit your own taste.
