Morgan's Beautiful Yellow and Gray Bridal Bouquet

Beautiful Yellow and Gray Bridal Bouquet
This beautiful yellow and gray bouquet is the floral design
 of Mobtown Florals of Baltimore, MD

This bouquet has chili peppers in it!  I didn't know that's what they were at first, 
until my face lips, fingers and fingernails began burning!  
Haha!  Was I surprised! 

White and yellow roses, Lizianthus, Silver Artemesia, 
Sea Holly, Billy Balls, Ranunculous, Pin Cushion Protea and a little Hydrangea!
Morgan chose to have her bouquet pressed and preserved 
around her Wedding Invitation!  Everything is
mounted on a light gray background and framed in an
11x14 silver frame!

Danielle's Burst of Color Bridal Bouquet ~*

 Preserving Danielle's Bridal Bouquet
really was like preserving the sunshine!

Bright Red Gerbera Daisies, Red Roses, 
Red and Yellow Freesia and Yellow Pin Cushion Protea 
made up this beautiful bridal bouquet!

Danielle chose to have her bouquet pressed and preserved 
on an ivory background, which really sets off all that blazing color!  
Included is her wedding picture.  It is framed in an 11x14 mahogany frame.

Here are a couple of close-up shots!

See the little heart-shaped rose petals?
I sometimes find these down inside the roses and always like
to find a place to tuck them into the art! 

Thank you, Danielle, for trusting me with transforming your 
beautiful bouquet into an heirloom!

Brooke's Creative and Unique Bridal Bouquet ~*

Artichokes, Kale, Succulents, Silver Brunia, Eucalyptus Berries and Scabiosa Pods
 were some of the unusual items in Brooke's Bridal Bouquet,
 that you don't normally think of when you think of Pressed Flowers!

Brooke's Bridal Bouquet was a unique design of Kale, Purple and White Calla Lillies, Succulents, Dusty Miller Leaves, Freesia, Lizianthus, Silver Brunia and Scabiosa Pods!  Other flowers were added to her Pressed Flower Art from table bouquets and bridesmaids bouquets and included Artichoke, Goldenrod and other items!

Fresh Bridal Bouquet Design by: Crissalane of Disch Events, Dripping Springs, TX 

Brooke's Bouquet, Pressed and Preserved 
in an 11"x14" Barnwood Frame!

Along the right side you can see a Double White Calla Lilly on top of a Dusty Miller Leaf.  This is actually the grooms boutonniere tucked into the design.

In this close-up shot, you can see the Artichokes and Succulents. 
The Kale is in the background. 

Balloon-shaped Beveled Glass Ornaments
made from Light Purple Calla's and other 
bits of flowers and leaves.

Kale Pendants!
Yes, you read that right, Kale Pendants!
The Kale Leaves pressed to a bright yellow and my brave,
creative bride wanted to see what would happen if I painted them teal!
So, I used some pastels and interestingly,
 the veins picked up the most paint!
Unique, huh?

 "We couldn't be more thankful to you for preserving our amazing, yet challenging, flowers! We loved our unique florals and now we get to look at them forever! Not to mention our family also gets to enjoy them with the gifts you made. We're so glad Crissalane told us about Pressed Garden."

 This is one bouquet I will never forget.  Thank you, Brooke, for
trusting me with things I had never pressed before!
I had fun trying new techniques and learned that
Yes! Artichokes, Succulents and Kale CAN be pressed!
