Preserved & Framed Wedding Bouquets
We press and frame wedding bouquets and sympathy arrangements into lovely framed pieces of dried floral art. Hold on to those cherished memories in the form of botanical art for your home.
Artwork is 11 x 14 inches in a 16 x 20 inch frame. This size is the best size to display a bouquet. At present we are only offering this size and only offering white or black frames.
We do a combination of pressing and hand painting delicate details. Save us your ribbon too and we will add that.
