Absolutely! I work with clients from all over! Please see the shipping page for detailed directions on how to pack your flowers for shipping.

Do you accept international orders or orders outside of the continental US?
Yes, however, sometimes there are issues with flowers traveling across borders. Certain types of flowers are prohibited. Please check with local customs to verify if you may bring or ship your flowers prior to booking. You will also need to check the duty laws of your country to avoid any unexpected charges upon receiving your items. Most importantly, fresh flowers must be received within 2 days of your event for the best results. If traveling back with your flowers, please consider these factors before booking.

When flowers are dried, they do change color. Sometimes this is mild and sometimes this is more dramatic. For instance, many bright pink flowers will turn more magenta, and whites may turn more ivory.
What types of flowers can be preserved?
Some flowers do preserve better than others. This depends on their water content. The drying times for individual flowers varies. This is where the experience of the preservation specialist is important. Lillies and orchids are difficult to dry but not impossible. Roses dry beautifully.

We can try but please remember the finished product reflects the condition the flowers were received in. I will do my best to remove damage and brown spots but time really is of the essence in the delivery process.

Why do some flowers turn translucent in resin?
The translucent petals are signs of bruising to the flower during it’s lifetime. Bruising can happen at a florist, during your event or during shipping. Bruising is part of the flower’s lifecycle. Unfortunately, most times this cannot be seen until after it is set in the resin.
