Memorial/Sympathy/Special Occasion Flowers
B’s Garden Treasures will preserve your loved one's flowers. The flowers will be carefully taken apart, pressed flat – using modern pressing techniques to remove the moisture – preserved and creatively reconstructed and arranged into framed art which can be displayed in your home and cherished for years to come.
The flowers may be arranged around a photograph of your loved one, verse, poem, funeral card, eulogy, etc. to create a sentimental and unique heirloom. They can also be arranged as a bouquet, a wreath, a heart, a garden landscape or other unique design. Depending upon the complexity, additional charges may be incurred.
You may have a solid colored hard mat board background or a soft background colored with pastels. You will be involved in all design decisions and will have the opportunity to review and approve the design concept before it is finalized.
Your special flowers will be sealed and professionally framed. Acid-free products and 99% UV-conservation glass are used to ensure the lasting quality of your heirloom. With a soft pastel or equivalent background, you may have the option of vacuum sealing for added protection. This requires extra space on all sides and the addition of a mat over the design, which may require a larger frame. Also, the frame rabbit depth must be deeper than for a non-vacuum sealed picture. See the example of an unframed and framed picture below which was vacuum sealed.
