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.
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.
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.
“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.
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.

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.
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.
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.
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.
