F R E S H F L O W E R S :
Flowers should be dropped off no later than 4 days after the event (wedding, funeral, etc.)
The pressing process varies for each flower, so it's best to receive the flowers as soon as possible.
Before drop off:
If possible, keep your flowers in a vase of shallow water (2-3 inches) in the fridge for a few days before hanging them to transport to my studio. Remove all ribbon, charms, rosaries, or special keepsakes added to the arrangement before placing them in water.
Flowers must arrive at my studio on hangers as follows: Remove any excess water from the stems. Take the flowers and hang them either one-by-one or in bunches (no more than 3 flowers per bunch) upside down from a regular clothes hanger in a dark, cool, indoor space with low humidity. You can do this by taking the bouquet apart, or cutting the flowers out of the bouquet and leaving at least half of the stem attached to the flower bud. The additional greenery and sprigs should also be hung upside down to keep them straight and dry. (Use string, ribbon, clothespins or anything you have on hand to attach them to the hanger.)

Note: All flowers colors will change in one way or another. Some flowers may darken while others get lighter. White flowers especially will fade to off-white, ivory, or tan. All of these changes are natural and should be expected.
Disclaimer: While our highest priority is to preserve sentimental flowers for as long as possible, please keep in mind that there are certain things out of our control. This includes a rare possibility of the flowers containing mold or microorganisms that were present from the start but may not be noticeable throughout the designing process and/or flower discoloration before/after the finished product. Due to flowers being a natural product, each individual flower is unique and will age differently.
