How to Care for your Bouquet Preservation

Posted by Skye Radwan on

Your pressed wedding bouquet is a treasured keepsake. Whether you choose a pressed flower frame, custom resin preservation, or both, properly caring for your pieces is of utmost importance. Even with proper care, natural color change may occur with the aging of your pressed blooms. The quality of your frame and resin design relies on how you care for it. We offer a few suggestions on how to make the flowers last as long as possible!

How to Care for Pressed Flower Frame Designs

1) Keep your Frame Away from Sunlight

All of our frames are protected by 99% UV coated glass, however natural pigmentation in your pressed florals can be affected by sunlight. Hang your frame in a spot where it can be showcased without facing the sun. Great spots include a cozy corner, above your bed, or in your hallway.

2) Avoid Excessive Heat or Humidity

Moisture in your pressed flowers is a huge no-no. Avoid displaying your pressed bouquet frame in your bathroom, sunroom, or above a radiator to keep your pressed flowers in tip-top shape. 

3) Handle with Care

We’ve made hanging your frame quick and easy by pre-installing your hanging hardware. Once you’ve found the perfect spot to display your pressed memories, use caution when adhering it to your wall. 

When cleaning your frame, use glass cleaner and paper towels to delicately clean the glass. Apply light pressure to your frame to prevent damaging the delicate petals and greenery on the other side. 

How to Care for Pressed Floral Resin Designs

1) Display your Resin Keepsakes Away from Sunlight

To prevent your pressed flower resin artwork from yellowing, position it away from sunlight for long-term display. It’s okay to bring out your coasters and resin tray to the patio every once in a while, just make sure to bring them back inside when the party's over!

2) Avoid Heat Exposure

Prolonged heat exposure can warp, soften, and discolor your resin keepsake. Don’t display your resin artwork near an oven, windowsill, radiator, or open flame. That means iced coffee only for your coasters! Piping hot mugs of coffee and tea aren’t ideal for resting on your resin items.

3) Clean with Care

To clean your floral resin pieces, lightly dust the surface using paper towel and water. If necessary, use mild dish soap to gently hand wash any surface stains on your pieces. Never dishwash your resin pieces as this will damage them significantly!
