Wedding Shower Gift | Glass Cloche

After spending hundreds of dollars and several hours designing the perfect bouquet, they are often tossed aside for lack of something to do with it.  One of the services I offer my clients is to dry their bouquets for them.  It’s a sentimental and unique piece to grace your bedroom, daughter’s bedroom or addition to your dining room.  You may remember this beautiful bouquet filled with peonies, anenomes and garden roses {created by Erin Volante Floral and photographed by RPM Photography}….
it would have been a shame to dispose it, so I dried the bouquet.
Drying Instructions:
Using dental floss, tie around just above the ribbon, then bring it through a few stems, again, just above the ribbon.  Tie the other end of dental floss around a hanger and hang so blooms are upside down in dark, dry closet {choose one that will have limited access due to the delicate nature of the bouquet}.  
To protect it, I recommend using a glass cloche or English bell jar.  It will protect the fragile flowers and eliminate any risk of dust.  As you may have noticed, a bouquet will shrink in width when dried and each bouquet will vary in size.  I recommend purchasing one at least 11″ in diameter and 13″ tall.  This fits most standard bouquets.
It’s a gift that the bride can cherish forever in her home.
