MEMORY FLOWERS

Flowers evoke special memories for different people. Their colours, structure and scent can be a delightful reminder of a special day or a special person. We can create an artistic work out of a particular flower or you can send a flower of your choice to us. 

The design can then be created into a cushion, scarf, canvas art or photographic print. We can also do custom orders if you have something different in mind such as fabric for upholstery.

Send us an email with the following details for us to provide you with a quote:

  • types of flower/s you will be sending to us
  • which method you would like (see below)
  • what you would like us to create from your design (eg. pillow, scarf, thank you cards, fabric for upholstery)
  • the date you will be sending the flowers to us

Some product options:

thank you cards (minimum order 25)
40cm x 40cm photographic print
50cm x 50cm photographic print
45cm x 45cm cushion
60cm x 60cm cushion

STEP 1

SEND FLOWERS

Send us your flowers within 10 days of your ceremony. This ensures that the flowers are still fresh enough to create the artwork and retain as much of the original colours that you had on the day. We will email you post details with your quote. If you live in the Surrey or West Sussex areas we can potentially pick up your flowers for an extra £15. Please contact for further pick up details.

STEP 2

DESIGN PROCESS

Once we receive your flowers we then create a bespoke abstract design by using one of the methods listed below. We will send you a digital mock up of the design for your approval before we send for printing. Please note that with some flowers they can turn brown if you have chosen the Pressed Petals method so we can discuss beforehand if you would like a different effect.

 STEP 3

FINISHED ARTWORK

Once we receive the artwork/fabric back, we then create your choice of product.  This could be a cushion, scarf, canvas print, thank you cards, photographic artwork or custom order such as wallpaper or fabric for upholstery. We then post your item back to you! The complete process can take between 4-8 weeks.

Please note that we cannot return your original flowers to you. If you would like to send us a small selection of your bouquet instead of the whole bunch then please do.

 

DESIGN METHODS

We have three different design options that you can choose from:

METHOD 1: Pressed Petals - We use an ancient process of hammering and pressing flowers into fabric to create this unique design. Some flowers can slightly change colour through this process which can produce a beautiful natural result. Below are a few examples of what your finished design might look like.


METHOD 2: Deconstructed Flora - For this process we delicately place petals and leaves from one or more of your flowers in a grid formation and then photograph it to capture the simplistic beauty of the petal structure. 


METHOD 3: Botanical Patterns - For this method we use the flowers and foliage that you send us to make a more symmetrical, flowing design.
