Caring for Your Keepsake
HOW MANY FLOWERS DO I NEED TO SEND?
We can get 6-10 beads from an average size rose depending on the condition and usable petals. Flowers with smaller petals would require more. We always encourage the sending of extra flowers to ensure enough usable flowers. Extra flowers will be stored for 6 months should you decide to order additional keepsakes.
WILL THE BEADS BE THE SAME COLOR AS THE FLOWERS?
Your preserved flowers will retain the natural color of their petals and in most cases will be a tad darker. Unless otherwise requested, we place the flowers in a base color which is a shade lighter than their original color. This both preserves the flower's original color and allows the flower to shine through.
CAN I CHANGE THE COLOR OF MY BEAD?
In most cases we can use a different base color to produce beautiful beads. However, color combinations need to be considered when deciding to vary from the flowers natural color as the base color. For example a flower with a light color may not be visible when a much darker base color is used. Blending two colors together can create a marble effect. This allows you to preserve the flowers natural color while adding a desired color change.
CAN I USE DRIED FLOWERS FROM A PREVIOUS OCCASION?
Yes, we welcome the use of flowers you have saved over the years. Your flowers can be delivered or mailed to us fresh or dried. See our Mailing Instructions for more information.

~ You can mail or deliver either fresh flowers or already dried flowers.
~ We only need your flowers or petals. No stems.
~ Lay flowers or petals in between sheets of paper towels and fold. If flowers are a tight bud such as a rose, separate the petals and lay them out flat on the paper towel. This will allow the petals to breathe and prevent the natural moisture from beginning to mildew. For ease in separating rose petals, place the rose bud in one hand, grasp the base of the flower with the other hand, twist, and remove the center along with the stem. The petals will fall apart naturally.
~ Place flowers in an envelope or folder. Do not place flowers or petals in plastic bags, bubble lined envelopes, etc. This traps moisture which can cause them to mildew in transit.
~ Inside the envelope please include our MAILING ENCLOSURE FORM.
Mail the flowers to:
P.O. Box 801630
Acworth, GA 30101
~ You can also make an appointment to deliver your petals by calling us at 404-644-8672.
