for other options and found her. I love how it turned out!" ~Allison

Wedding Table Centerpiece ~ Preserved as a surprise!

My customer brought a Wedding Table Centerpiece 
to me to be preserved as a surprise gift for
the bride!

 The Lavender Lillies, White Hydrangea and Purple Wax Flowers
were mounted on a rich purple background
and framed in an 8x10 silver/black frame.

Teardrop Beveled Glass Ornaments 
are made from left over petals.
"[My Sister in Law] was surprised and so happy with her gift! Both she and my brother loved it, 
and spent quite a bit of time simply admiring it and taking in the details, color and precious reminder you created. They’re wonderful and beautifully show your work. I just love how it turned out,
 and really couldn’t be any happier with all that you did. It was just beautiful!
Many, many thanks to you for your lovely, lovely work!" ~ Kay

Kelly's Beautiful Autumn Bridal Bouquet ~*

Kelly's Bridal Bouquet was an amazing combination of plants and flowers!

Floral Design by: Petal Pushers, Dripping Springs, Texas

 Teddy Bear Sunflowers, 3 Kinds of Orchids, Rununculous, Calla Lillies, 
Mums, Scabiosa Pods, Goldenrod, Dahlia, Billy Balls, Feverfew, 
Hypericum Berries, Cockscomb, Leucodendron, Astilbe,
 Silver Leaves and Eucalyptus!

The flowers were pressed, preserved, some were color-enhanced,
then mounted on an ivory background and
professionally framed in an 11x14 walnut frame.

Each flower is pressed, some taken apart first and reassembled later.  
The bride chooses how she wants her bouquet presented.  
In this case, she wanted the flowers, only 
and she wanted them to fill the frame with a small space around the edge.  
After the art is completed, it is vacuum sealed.

Teardrop Beveled Glass Ornament Keepsakes
made from extra orchids from the bouquet.

Thank you, Kelly, for trusting me with your gorgeous bridal bouquet!
