Additional Information

Prices are based on the style of preservation, amount and type of flowers to be preserved.

Our wholesale priced frame collection has been carefully selected to compliment your preserved flowers. A frame and a mat must be selected at your design appointment. We only work with frames and mats provided by Flowers Forever.  

Freeze dried flowers change in color during the preservation process. Color enhancement is used. However dried flowers will vary in color from the original fresh flower.

Pressed Flowers - Some thick flowers (large daisies, sunflowers, etc.) and fabric (lace, burlap) will not allow us to firmly position pressed flowers under glass and shedding is expected.

Freeze Dried Flowers - Some shedding and color change will occur over time. Any flowers with small petals are more likely to shed.
