Pink, Fushia and White Rose Bridal Bouquet

This is a bridal bouquet of pink, fushia and white roses. I prefer to receive the flowers within 1-3 days of the event. The fresher the flowers, the better the outcome. Here is the original art and a close up of the roses after being pressed and framed.

Happy Valentines Day! In celebration of those I love...

My name is Annie Fentz!

One look around my home would tell you that my greatest passion is flowers. I've been studying flowers, growing them, playing with them and crafting with them, my entire life! I always found flowers to be such a beautiful display of God's glory. It would seem fitting then, that I would fall in love with the art of pressing and preserving flowers.

Pressed Garden was born in 2005 and since that time, I have had the privilege of preserving beautiful bridal bouquets and memorial flowers from the most wonderful people all over the United States! Thank you to all my customers and the floral shops that have recommended me, for trusting me with your most treasured flowers and for allowing me to turn them into cherished heirlooms! Thank you to my mentor, Cellestine, whose book, "Glorious Pressed Flower Projects" inspired me, and to the many fellow Pressed Flower Artists at the World Wide Pressed Flower Guild and around the world that have poured insight, creativity and encouragement into me. My hope is to give back all that the Lord has blessed me with!!!
