Fortunately, flower preservation services are available that can preserve your flowers to enjoy long after they fade. Whether you want to preserve an entire bouquet or just want to save a few gorgeous stems from your flower garden, a flower preservation service can help.
When to preserve flowers
For best results, you should plan on preserving your flowers before they fade completely. As soon as you notice minor fading taking place, it is best to move forward with preservation so you can preserve the flower in its original condition. Contact your flower preservation service as soon as you receive your flowers and they will recommend how long to wait before bringing them in.
You may be familiar with the art of drying flowers to preserve them and may have done this in the past by placing a flower between the pages of a heavy book. Your flower preservation service will have the right tools to assure a great outcome when pressing flowers. They can arrange and place the flowers in a frame of your choosing to create a beautiful wall hanging.
Air drying flowers is an easy method that allows you to use dried flowers in a vase for a centerpiece. You can also have the dried flowers made into a wreath for a door. Save any ribbons from your original flower bouquet to tie around your dried arrangement or wreath.
Wax preservation is not recommended for the long term but is fine if you just want to extend your floral bouquet for several months. Wax preservation keeps your flowers looking like their original state. Waxing also preserves the color well and you will not likely be able to tell your waxed flowers from the originals.
While having a painting of your flowers is not actually preserving them, it is a great idea with long-lasting results. Have an artist paint a picture of your favorite flowers and you will have an amazing work of art that is one of a kind. Your flower preservation service may be able to suggest an artist who will paint your bouquet into a lasting memory you will be proud to display in your home.
Turning fading flowers into a work of art is what flower preservation is all about. Preserving your favorite flowers is perfect for keeping memories alive. It is also fun to decorate your home with preserved flowers to add beauty and meaning to your home's interior.
