Event Already Happened
- Ordering After the Event – It’s not too late to preserve your flowers, even after the event has already happened! Sentimental Preservation handles pre-planned, last minute and after-the-event orders! Design decisions can be made after we’ve preserved your flowers.
- Caring for your Flowers~ You’ll want to care for your flowers as sweetly as possible to ensure their beauty prior to Sentimental Preservation receiving them, here’s how:
Hydrate those flowers if possible. If your bouquet is contained inside a bouquet holder made of plastic, fill the spongy green foam inside the plastic handle with water -- simply hold the bouquet under a gently running faucet for a few seconds. Shake off any excess water that may have dripped onto the bouquet holder or the flowers during this step. If your bouquet is hand-tied, as most are these days, unwrap the ribbon from the bottom a bit and cut the bottom of the stems off by about ½ inch. Place the bouquet in a tall drinking glass and add just about ½ inch or inch of warm water to the glass.
~Put your bouquet into a cool, dark place or cooler~
If you are transporting the flowers to me you’ll want to put them in an ice chest. Cover the flowers loosely with a plastic bag, blow air into the bag and tie tightly around the stems. Because bruising causes the flowers to brown, delicate handling can help minimize the damage to the flowers.
