How It Works

Floral preservation is a process that extracts moisture from the flowers creating dehydrated or dried flowers.

We use two methods: silica beads or a sand vacuum.   The sand vacuum uses extreme heat and takes about 3 to 5 days.

  • All flowers will change color. Keep in mind that these are real dried flowers and nature plays a big part in this process. Over time, your flowers will take on a softer antique look.
  • While most flowers preserve beautifully, some flowers like chrysanthemums, dahlias and bouvardia may not, and some are harder to preserve than others. Check with your florist if you are unsure of your flowers or call us at Sentimental Preservation for more information.
