What we offer:

Custom pressing and framing of your fresh flowers.
(Please note that flowers can only be pressed when they are fresh, NOT once dried)

Our beautiful wooden frames are handmade here in Halifax, by André from WoodSaltSun. These gorgeous frames are crafted from reclaimed Nova Scotian barn wood and create the perfect complement to our pressed flowers.

Want the piece to include your written vows, a photo or ceremony program? We can do that - design elements of the arrangements can be customized.

Dropping off your flowers:

Flowers must be delivered to our Halifax Studio within 2-3 days of the event. The sooner the flowers are delivered, the better – this avoids wilting and discolouration. Once you place your order, we will provide our tips for keeping your flowers fresh until they are in our hands. 

Timeline/Process:

Please allow up to three months for your finished custom piece. 

  1. Fresh flowers are pressed for 4-6 weeks to ensure effective preservation. 

  2. Once the press is opened, we sort through the contents to decide what will work best for your custom design and arrangement. 

    • Due to their organic nature, we cannot guarantee that all of your flowers will press perfectly. Final designs will be based off the results of the pressing process.

    • Any leftover pressed flowers can be delivered along with your final design.

  3. After 6-8 weeks from drop-off, we will contact you with composition options. Based on your choice, the design will be finalized, and your arrangement will be created.

Longevity:

Please note - fading and changing of colors is to be expected with pressed flowers as they are organic and change naturally over time. Keeping the frame away from direct sunlight will reduce fading.

Pricing:

  • 12” x 12” arrangement $300 +HST

Additional arrangement frames (5”x 5”) : $100 +HST

  • 5” x 5” arrangements: $150 each +HST

We require a non-refundable initial deposit of 30% when booking. A final invoice will be sent out when the framing process is finished.
