  Amanda chose to have her bouquet presented 
on a white background and 
framed in an 11x14 walnut frame.

The flowers are pressed, arranged according to the customers 
choices and then vacuum sealed before framing.

Thank you, Amanda, for trusting me with your beautiful bouquet!

Kara's Fresh Creative Bridal Bouquet ~*

Kara's Fresh, Creative Bridal Bouquet!
Variegated Cabbage, Cotton Plants, Lizianthus, 
Carnation, Larkspur, Trick Carnations and Eucalyptus! 
Floral Design by: Angie Mays ~ Evember Floral ~ San Antonio, TX
Photography: Sarah Griffin ~ New Branfels, TX  

I pressed and preserved Kara's bouquet
on a "Terre Grotto" background, vacuum sealed it and 
framed it in an 11x14 Walnut Frame.
Kara gave me some freedom on how to arrange her flowers around her wedding invitation.  Because the original bouquet had such a pretty draping effect, 
I chose to have the flowers spill up and over the invitation.  

I had never pressed Cotton Plants before.  The outter shell is quite hard, so I took it apart,  and soaked it in water before pressing under concrete blocks!  
I reconstructed it to look 3-dimentional, while still flat. 

Scrapbook Squares - Little 2" pieces of Pressed Flower Art
that can be used to embellish her Wedding Scrapbook! 
 Balloon-shaped Beveled Glass Ornaments
Made from extra flowers! 

I love it!!!! I'm so happy with the frame and colors and layout, it couldn't be better!!! 
Thank you for everything - this is going to be a great memento from our wedding 
that we'll cherish forever :)))))  ~Kara
