Thank you so much for thinking of Flora and Forest for your bouquet preservation piece. I'd be honoured to work on a special keepsake for you to showcase in your home. I hold open only a few spots each week for bookings, so if you know the date of your event and want to ensure you get your spot, make sure you reserve asap to get the time you're hoping for! If you'd like to read our most commonly asked questions, you can do so by clicking here.
Custom Order minimums are $350 and only main block pieces count towards that minimum. You cannot add multiple add on items to meet the $350 minimum. Bookings do require a $150 non-refundable deposit when booking your date. This deposit does go towards your final order total. Click here to view the pricing list and view your available options for pieces.
Booking your date gives you a 5 day window to get your flowers to me. Obviously the sooner the better, as I can't bring back flowers from the dead. When booking your date, feel free to ignore the time. It's just reserving a spot on that day for you.
If you need to ship your flowers, you will need to send them priority overnight (which is a cost you will be responsible for). If you are local to the Okanagan, you or your designated point person can drop them off with me in person at my home studio. The day after your event is going to be your best bet, to ensure I'm getting them at their freshest! You can also talk to your florist about creating a 'mini' version of your bouquet that you can keep well hydrated at home in water until the next day.
Once your deposit has been paid and your date has been booked, you'll receive a contract outlining all the nitty gritty details and policies for your custom order. Once that's been completed, you'll receive an order form where you will specify what you're hoping to purchase. In that form, I will inquire about shipping vs drop off and I'll then be sure to provide you with drop off or very detailed shipping instructions.
