CARE AND DELIVERY for Freeze dried and or Victorian Pressed preservation (For these styles of preservation we accept walk-ins only. If you need to mail your flowers we offer Bellabeads- flower petal jewelry preservation)



 For best results deliver your bouquet or flowers as soon as possible after your event.

  • If your flowers have visible stems, trim about 1 inch off the ends and place them in a vase of cool water.
  • For flowers in a bouquet holder, place the bouquet over a sink and pour a small amount of cool water into the holder’s center.
  • Refrigerate or store in a cool place until you are ready to deliver them to us. Keep your flowers towards the front of the refrigerator on the bottom shelf.
