What Clients Say :

  • What an awesome keepsake from my wedding.  I have a picture frame, made from my wedding bouquet!!! Tonya, TN  Feb. 2013

  • My first comment would be, I wish I knew sooner that this could be done.  Second comment, I’m extremely happy I know now.  What an amazing idea.  I’ve had her make picture frames and jewelry pieces from memorial flowers.  I am so thankful to have these beautiful keepsakes. Karen, Arizona  April 2013

  • I am a repeat customer with Forever In Time.. My mother passed away a little over 4 years ago now, and my father and I had her funeral flowers preserved. I got engaged 2 years ago, and was heartbroken at the thought of my mom not being there on my special day. Well, I got married, and because we had mom's flowers preserved, I was able to carry a jewelry piece in my bouquet. My mom was with me! I had my wedding flowers preserved and am so grateful for Forever In Time. Melissa, MI  July 2012

  • I saw Forever In Time at a bridal show when I first got engaged and just knew that was something I had to do! I filled out a form that day and received a postcard in the mail a few weeks before my wedding. I called Tammy and set up a time to pick up my flowers. It was so easy, they came right to my mom's house and got the flowers! I picked out keepsakes for myself and got my bridesmaids each a jewelry piece. They all love them and say they can't wait to get married so they can do this too! Paige, WI  July 2012

  • Our daughter committed suicide, and we wanted to do something not only to remember her by, but to raise suicide awareness as well. We contacted Forever In Time and Tammy was so helpful. She was so patient with us and answered all of the questions we had. We decided on an awareness ribbon made with our daughters flowers. They came out better than we could have ever expected. We handed them out to our daughters classmates and friends, and can only hope they are as touched by these beautiful keepsakes as we are. Thank you again! Joan, CO  Jan 2013

  • I had no idea anything like this even existed until the day my mother surprised me with a candle, jewelry pieces and a paperweight made from MY wedding flowers! I cried! I thought my flowers were gone forever. Apparently my mom knew someone who had their flowers done, so she took my flowers the night of the wedding and shipped them off. I love them! Tricia, GA  Sept 2012

  • My now husband serves our country, and had served 2 tours overseas. I always dreamed of a big wedding, so we waited and planned for 4 years! I wanted to do something to always remember this important day in our lives.. I came across Forever In Time's website and knew I had to do this! I shipped my flowers the Monday following our wedding and was contacted a few weeks later when my flowers were ready. I had candles made for myself, mother, and mother-in-law. And I also had a heart jewelry piece made for my husband so that he can carry that special moment with him if he serves overseas again. I am so thankful I came across this! Abby, AZ  Aug 2012

  • Thank you for the beautiful pendants and frames.  They have truly touched each and everyone of us with memories of our beloved grandma. Audrey, MI  June 2013

  • Wow!  There is no way to say thanks for the time and effort you put into the crosses and paperweights.  They are a beautiful memory to have forever. P.S., I can't wait to give my son Jon his! Diane, MI  June 2013

  • After my father passed away I found myself wishing there was a way I could still hold on to him. I searched the internet for a way to preserve his flowers, and found Forever In Time. What a truly unique and beautiful thing! And it was so easy. I mailed my flowers, waited for them to finish the process, and placed my order. There were so many things to choose from! The day I received my order my eyes literally filled with tears. I had something to remember my dad. My family loved the pieces too and some placed orders of their own. I have, and will continue to recommend this to anyone. Thank you! Jessica, TX  Oct 2012

  • When I got the email from Tammy, asking if I would do a review, I was very happy to. I know I'd never heard of preserving my flowers, so I know most other people haven't either. I had seen her at the bridal show at Shopko Hall last year, and kept her info. But she had also called me a couple weeks before my wedding, because I had filled out a form at the show for her. I'm so glad I did this. It's not that expensive, and it's worth every penny. Kylie, WI  Aug. 2010

    Kylie Aug. 7, 2010

  • Tammy preserved my wedding bouquet in a beautiful hand made shadowbox. She was extremely flexible in coming to pick up the flowers and the other items for the display, which she did not need at the same time. It was really nice to be able to hand off the flowers and then take my time to pick the rest of the display. The results are absolutely stunning and I am so happy I decided to preserve my flowers. At Tammy's amazing prices it would have been silly not to! I completely recommend working with Forever in Time for floral preservation.

    Aug. 28, 2010

  • Wow, I love it. I'm so glad I did this and you shouldn't hesitate to do it too. Very easy, she makes it very easy. It does take a little time, but it's worth it. I did a shadowbox, and a piece of jewelry. Again, glad I did it.

    Olivia Sept. 18, 2010

  •  This was something that I would have never thought of having done if I wouldn't have come across one of their brochures. My flowers came out absolutely beautiful they look the same as they did the day I got married, and how they put everything into a shadowbox it really is a wonderful keepsake. I would recommend this company to anyone.

    Tiffany, Oct. 2, 2010

  • I can't express how important it was to me to have flowers preserved from my sisters funeral.  She had battled cancer for 16 months, and each day she would look outside, and be thankful for the flowers, birds, family, just another day.  So when I heard of Forever In Time, I knew I would have to have some of funeral flowers preserved.  It wasn't just for me, it was for my other family members too.  We  all made our choice of what type of keepsake we wanted, it is a very personal item to us.  But it does mean so much.  I'm very thankful that I have this, and Tammy/Forever In Time was so professional, helpful and understanding with our lose.  I can't thank her enough.

Floral Preservation

There are many different ways to preserve flowers. Most people have probably taken a flower and let it dry naturally. Then I’m sure it’s not lasted any length of time without crumbling and falling apart. With the price of flowers, and also the sentimental importance of your flowers, be sure to have them preserved professionally. The fresher the flowers, the better they will preserve. Either using chemicals or freeze-drying, your flowers can be preserved for you to enjoy, for years to come. I use three different chemicals, and it takes a lot of patience and precision to details. When I receive flowers, first I take photos and notes, then every flowers is treated separately. Depending on the flower, it does take 3-6 weeks. Open flowers such as lilies or daisies take less time, more dense flowers like roses or carnations take more time. It’s basically the art of drying flowers, removing all the moisture. They do shrink in size, color can change a bit, but they are still YOUR flowers. Be sure to arrange pick up or shipping your flowers in advance. Weddings obviously are arranged way in advance, so you have plenty of time to arrange to have your wedding bouquet preserved. But then there are instances, such as a passing of a loved one, that you don’t know in advance. The main thing, is call or email to arrange the floral preservation as soon as you can. Again, the fresher the flower, the better they will preserve. Once your flowers are preserved, they need to be enclosed into something, to protect them. What helps them to last, is to keep them out of the natural elements, heat, cold, humidity, dust, etc. Now you need to choose what you want to do with them.

Custom Shadowbox

With a shadowbox, you can also include other items with your flowers. We custom build our boxes, so you will choose the frame style, color and size. Of course, you can have a shadowbox built for items other than flowers, sports memorabilia, etc. Just call or email for prices. I love the challenge of something new and different. Most of the shadowboxes I do are for weddings. With a wedding you can include a photo, invitation, unity candle, toasting glasses, garter, it’s all up to you. This is your keepsake, we work together to design and create the perfect shadowbox for you. Imagine a shadowbox with the outfit you brought your baby home from the hospital in, or the costume from a first dance revue. Prom items or graduation. How about a 25th or 50th anniversary. We also custom build for military keepsakes. I just received a bugle and photos from WWII, to make a custom piece for the grand-daughter to pass down to her children. We all have items in the back of a closet, in a box in the basement, that should be make into a shadowbox to display and enjoy.

Glass Domes and Displays

Your preserved flowers need to be placed into something. Domes are available in many different sizes. Obviously, size of the flowers will determine the choices you will have for a display. We work together, creating a beautiful display for your preserved flowers. I always have people comment that a wedding bouquet preserved and displayed under a glass dome, looks like something from “Beauty and the Beast”. The main part of my business is floral preservation, but of course, I am more than willing to create something other than floral.

Jewelry made from flowers

When I started my business in 2004, I mainly did shadowboxes and displays. But in 2010, I added floral jewelry. First I preserve your flowers. Then I take your preserved flowers and create custom floral jewelry. There are so many choices of styles, it’s up to you. They are just fun with all the different colors and styles. But then, when these pieces are made from your keepsake flowers, they are even more special. Imagine, wedding flowers, memorial flowers, bringing home baby, anniversary, the ideas are endless. The jewelry is made from a special grade acrylic. Each piece is unique. Think of it with either flowers from your bridal bouquet, making a piece for yourself, your mother, mother-in-law, attendants, what a beautiful keepsake. The same with memorial flowers. To wear a piece that is made from those special flowers. I’ve even had brides have me make extra pieces, hoping they will have a daughter some day, to give it too. I always think how special it would be to be able to pass down a custom made floral jewelry piece to your children and grandchildren. Please be sure to keep checking back, I’m always coming up with new styles.

Embedments or Paperweights made from flowers

Embedments or paperweights are made of a solid acrylic. Placing of a flower or other items inside, or embedding, creating a custom embedment for you to enjoy. With floral embedments or paperweights, the flowers are first preserved. Then depending on the size of the flower or flowers, you will be given the choice of the shape and size of the embedment you would like. This is another way to safely display your preserved keepsake flower or flowers. As stated, with preserved flowers, they must be placed into something, to keep them out of the elements in your home. Humidity, dust, heat and cold, are all harmful to the preserved flowers. With embedments or paperweights , they will last for many years. They are used like a paperweight, but depending on the shape or size, they can be put onto a display easel or even hung. This part of my business I also added in 2010, still coming up with more and more shapes and sizes. If there is something you are looking for, please don’t hesitate to ask. I’m more than willing to do something new.

Candles made from flowers

These are candles that you don’t burn.  They are actually a shell candle that is hollow inside.  You simply place a flicker candle inside, and as it’s  illuminated , your flowers are seen in a warm glow.  Because you don’t actually burn the candle, it can last forever.  This is a very unique way to display and keep your flowers.

What will you do with YOUR flowers?

Now you’ll need to make some decisions.  Are you going to what a full shadowbox, a dome or display, embedment or jewelry.  None of this needs to be decided right now.  The main thing is to get the flowers and to get them preserved.  Because it takes awhile for them to preserve, you have plenty of time to decide what you want.  I’m not in a hurry, it’s up to you.   Don’t pass up the opportunity, you only have once chance to have them preserved.  Prices vary from $15.00 to $250.00 total.  So there is something in YOUR budget.   Your flowers have a special meaning to you, why not keep them and enjoy them “Forever In Time”.

Wedding Flowers

You’ve planned your wedding since you were a little girl.  If you are going to toss your bouquet…toss it my way!!
It’s so easy, you contact me before your wedding, and arrange how I will get your flowers.  Depending on where you live, I do pick flowers up on Sundays for FREE in the Central Upper Peninsula or Northeastern Wisconsin.  But it must be arranged in advance.  If you don’t live in those areas, I can explain how to ship them.  I can do the full bouquet for a shadowbox or dome/display, or a few flowers for an embedment, or individual flowers for jewelry pieces.  Again, budget, anywhere from $15.00 to $250.00, so it’s very affordable.  One of my favorite things, when I deliver a piece, is seeing how excited a bride is to be able to keep her bouquet.  I’ve had mothers of the bride or groom, show me their flowers that had been preserved years before.  I even had a grandmother show me her flowers.  How amazing will it be to pass down your bridal bouquet to your daughter/son, and even down to a grand-daughter/son in years to come.  That is an amazing keepsake, that will become a family heirloom.
I love the option of the jewelry pieces.  It is so easy.  You simple send me a few flowers, think of the colors.  You want to send at least one flower of each color.  Then you pick the style you like, and I make you a pendant.  Then imagine wearing your pendant, having someone ask what it is…to tell them it’s actual flowers from you wedding bouquet.   It’s such a perfect gift for the Mother of the Bride, or Mother of the Groom, your Maid of Honor, your attendants….everyone will love it.    I even have brides have me make extra pieces, for when they have children.  Think of the daughter you have someday….and you have her wear a pendant made from YOUR wedding bouquet at her wedding…as “something old”.  It gives me goosebumps just thinking of it.  Again, please don’t pass up the opportunity to have your bridal bouquet preserved and turned into a special keepsake.  There are so many things to choose from.

Funeral Flowers or Memorial Flowers

This part of my business means so much to me.  When I started my business in 2004, part of the reason was because I had lost my father, and I wanted to keep flowers from his funeral.  I knew because it was so important to me, it would be to others too.  And I wanted to be able to give that remembrance to them.  Flowers from a funeral have very special meaning.  It is a very personal keepsake, and we work together to make a special and unique piece.  When I first began, and would be at bridal shows, I’d end up with someone in tears….stating they wished they had heard of floral preservation when they lost a loved one.   When I can take these very special flowers, and make a piece that I know means so much to you, I can’t express what it means to me.  I know with the flowers I have from my Dad’s funeral, just about every day, as I see them…it might be just touching them, or seeing them….and they bring me such a warm feeling…and the memories along with it.  Please allow me to do this for you.

Special Occasion Flowers

There are so many occasions that we receive flowers.  Be it the birth of a child, prom, graduation, birthday, anniversary….anything….you can have them preserved.    I love the idea, when you have a baby, and the “Daddy” gives you flowers….have a jewelry piece made…or do a shadowbox with the flowers, and the outfit you brought your baby home in.  Then with school events, be it sports memorabilia, or first dance revue, prom and graduation.   Then from there, it can be 25th or 50th wedding anniversary.  There are so many options….you just need to think of them.

Heritage or Sports Keepsakes

From memorabilia from a special vacation, your favorite sports team, heritage/antique pieces, or even military keepsakes…turn them into a special shadowbox.  We custom build the shadowboxes, so they can be made to fit anything.   It doesn’t have to include flowers.  Any of these special items need to be “preserved” and displayed properly.  So many of use have items in a closet, in the basement or even in storage….that should be on display.  I really try my best to keep the price affordable….just contact me for an estimate.  You will be so glad that you finally do something with these items.  And again….imagine passing them down to your children and even grandchildren.   You will be glad you had it done, and more important….so will they.

Who is Forever In Time

Me, Tammy Harris.  I started the business, it’s me picking up flowers, preserving the flowers.  It’s done in my home, basement and garage.  I don’t send the flowers out, so they are safe.  My husband builds my shadowboxes, and helps enclose them.  I make the embedments.  I design and make all the jewelry pieces.  It’s all me.  That’s why I’m so proud of what I’ve done and what I do.  It’s taken a lot of trial and error to perfect what I do.  I keep trying to come up with more ideas and options.  This is my full-time job….and I love it.  Because I’ve gotten busier, I do have my daughter making phone calls and emails for me, that was I can concentrate on creating the keepsakes.  I’m not a huge business, and not the most high-tech….but it works for me…and hopefully….for you.

Hand-crafted Keepsakes

Everything I make is hand-crafted.  From the custom built shadowboxes, which you choose the frame type and color.  To the acrylic paperweights, or embedments, they are hand-crafted, so no two are the same.  The jewelry pieces are also hand-crafted.  Each are unique, and your personal keepsake.  The same for the candles,  I personally create each item.  We work together to plan the perfect keepsake for you.  Please keep checking back to the website, I’m always making something new.  New shapes, new styles.  I’m always up for the challenge of making something new.  If you have an idea, just ask, and I’ll do my best to try to make it work.
