How are flowers pressed and preserved?
It has taken years to learn what we have about pressing flowers of all types. Sarah, the CEO, has educated our team to perfection with all that she has learned through her years of experience, trial, and error. We have created out own systems and processes based on our expertise. If you are trying to press flowers yourself, start by pressing flowers between two pages of a book with plenty of weight on top! When it comes to preserving sentimental floral arrangements, such as your wedding bouquet, hire us as your professional preservation experts to ensure the best quality possible. You have one shot at preserving these beautiful pieces - all of us at Pressed Floral are professionals and ensure your blooms are in the best hands. We love doing what we are doing!
How soon do you need the flowers?
The sooner the better. We recommend within 3 days of your event, the blooms are usually workable within one week. Prior to them being delivered to our shop, be sure to keep them in the fridge and/or in water with fresh cut stems! Signs that your bouquet is not workable: The flowers crumble to the touch, or the bases are beginning to mold.
Can you incorporate ribbons, pendants, or other sentimental items?
Do not send any ribbons, pendants, handkerchiefs, or other sentimental items with your floral arrangements. They will not be used in the final product and will be discarded upon arrival.
Are there any flowers that cannot be pressed?
We are so proud to announce that we can press most any flower. There are some that cannot be thinned. These include, and are not limited to: artificial flowers, silver brunia balls, some pincushions, billy balls, cactus, pinecones, additional fruits + vegetables, and pendants.
Will the colors fade after the bouquet is already framed?
Flowers will continue to fade for their entire lifetime. If you take care of your frame, additional fading can be minimized. The more your frame is exposed to sunlight, the greater chance and speed of fading. When you receive your frame, it WILL fade more than what you see. Enjoy the frame for decades to come!
Will all of my flowers be pressed?
Not all will be pressed, and not all that are pressed will be used. Our team will go through and choose the best quality and in best condition flowers prior to pressing and framing to ensure the best final product.
