Flower Packaging

How to securely package your flowers for preservation

To safely preserve your wedding or funeral tribute make sure your package is secure

You Will Need:

  • Your Flowers
  • 1 Empty Container (big enough to fit your bouquet)
  • Parcel Bag/Wrap
  • Parcel Tape
  • A Pen
  • Paper
  • Scissors

·         Order Number

 

  • Please note: foliage is really important to enclose also as this enhances the beauty of the artwork.

·                     Please use a plastic container such as a small storage box. If possible, avoid using a cardboard box, as these are much more likely to become damaged, or get wet during transit. Also before sending your flowers we would like to remind you we DO NOT return any boxes.

·                     Steps for sending fresh flowers for preservation

·                     At this time of year especially we suggest you do add the wet kitchen roll on the ends of the flowers to keep the moisture within.

    1. On the bottom of the Tupperware box place a layer of kitchen roll (this retains the moisture within the flowers much better and place a little water on this to make it moist).
    2. Wrap dry kitchen roll JUST around the bottom of the flower stalks and foliage, then cover with cling film approx 2-8 in length
    3. Cover flowers with another layer of Kitchen roll and SEAL THE BOX
    4. Keep flower heads away from the edge of the box ( as this may bruise the flower head inside )
    5. Ensure your name and address is clearly marked within the package along with your reference number

·                     If payment has been made in full using our online checkout, no deposit is required. One of these options will need to be completed to generate a preservation space. You will be provided with a four digit reference number

·                     Please include a copy of your payment/receipt with your flowers if possible or just write the details on a piece of paper.

Securely seal the box with tape and deliver it to our studio using ROYAL MAIL SPECIAL DELIVERY (GUARANTEED NEXT DAY BY 1PM) through your local post office.
