At Heirloom Blooms Design, we don't just preserve flowers; we transform them into lasting memories. Our bouquet preservation process is a labor of love, and we're here to give you an exclusive peek behind the scenes.


Step 1: Meticulous Disassembly and Pressing

We start by carefully disassembling most of the flowers from your bouquet. Each bloom is handled with care as we place them into our presses. Over the next week, we diligently change out damp papers for fresh, dry ones. This meticulous process ensures that your flowers won't develop mold, and it's the first step in our journey to create a lasting memory for you. This process takes us about 2-3 hours.

Step 2: Weeks of Patience

Your flowers stay in the press for several weeks until they are completely dry and flat. We believe in taking the time needed to preserve the intricate beauty of each petal and leaf. This patience is the foundation of our craftsmanship.


Step 3: Re-Assembly and Color Correction

If any flowers require re-assembly, we carefully bring them back to their original glory. For white flowers, which can show bruising and tend to fade or brown, we apply our expertise in color correction to ensure they look their best.


Step 4: Designing Your Unique Keepsake

Now comes the part where we truly make your preserved bouquet special. Based on your preferences, we begin the design process. Our goal is to keep the designs clean and balanced, highlighting the flowers' natural beauty. But we also want it to reflect your unique love story. We can accommodate special requests or include a photograph or invitation in your design.

Step 5: Your Input Matters

Your feedback is essential. You have the opportunity to make tweaks before you approve the designs before we proceed to gluing down. We want your preserved bouquet to be a reflection of your vision.


Step 6: The Art of Framing

With your design finalized, we begin the delicate process of gluing it down, which can take anywhere from 1 to 3 hours. We ensure that every detail is perfect. The glass for our floating frames is cleaned to perfection.


Step 7: Custom-Made Frames in Coastal-Inspired Colors

Our frames are not just any frames; they are custom-made right here in the USA, on the East Coast. We offer three coastal-inspired colors: Driftwood, Natural, and Oyster White. Your choice of frame adds a unique touch to your preserved bouquet.


Step 8: Beautifully Packaged for a Forever Home

Before your heirloom art begins its journey to your home, we carefully package it in our beautiful branded packaging. We believe that the experience should be as memorable as the bouquet itself.



Each preserved bouquet we create at Heirloom Blooms Design tells a unique love story. Our commitment to preserving your precious memories with meticulous care and artistry is what sets us apart. Your bouquet isn't just flowers; it's a timeless keepsake, and we're honored to be a part of your story.
