Wow! Feels like this season is the season for new swag at Keepsake Floral! Not only are we adding new lantern keepsake designs this fall, but we’re also making some beautiful updates in our oldest keepsake category .. the shadowbox.

We love shadowboxes and oval keepsakes, but there’s something unique about a tabletop keepsake. Perhaps it’s the ability to see the preserved arrangement from all sides, or is it the ability for the viewer to enjoy the keepsake in an unexpected display environment?  Those two reasons, combined with the more modern and urban look that the tabletop arrangements provide, make these keepsakes some of our most endearing.

So there we were, my new husband and me, hovering around the circling baggage claim carousel at the Orlando International Airport. As Jay and my dad watched all the black suitcases for those that belonged to us newlyweds, my mom and I stood and discussed what I had missed in Orlando since our wedding day. She had also contacted just about every florist in town to accomplish the one task that had alluded her all week… preserving my wedding bouquet and that of my maid of honor.

So, along with a friend at the time, I began spending all of my non-working waking hours on this absolutely crazy idea. Before we knew it, we had quit our full-time jobs to pursue Keepsake Floral.

Love heals.  Flowers heal.  Last November, our 10-member team at Keepsake Floral had a unique opportunity to help our city and the families who lost loved-ones in the tragic shooting at Pulse Nightclub in Orlando this summer to do just that .. to heal ..

Why is flower preservation so expensive? .. or Is my keepsake really going to cost as much as my house payment this month? We get this question a lot.  And don’t worry, we don’t take offense to it.  Although we’re a bunch of sensitive artists, we understand that folks ask that question mostly because they don’t understand our process.  Guess that makes us a bunch of misunderstood, sensitive artists!

The simple answer to the expense question is simple .. time is money, and keepsake creation takes a lot of time!  We could leave it at that, but just for you, we’ll elaborate.

So you’re wondering if your particular bouquet will preserve well.  Yes, there are some flowers that preserve more easily than others, and there are some that, no matter what we do, don’t preserve well AT ALL.  Fortunately, the latter is more the exception to the rule.

For every bride considering the possibility of preserving her wedding bouquet for years of future enjoyment, there may be someone who tries to discourage her from doing so. Whether it is the bride-to-be's fiancé (who wants to save some money to buy a beer stein or autographed baseball), a friend or even the bride's own florist (who may be unaware of the developments in recent years regarding preservation), there can be numerous road blocks for a bride trying to find out more information.
