It is often said that flowers are a language unto themselves. They can convey messages of love, condolences, and hope, even when words fail us. For this reason, flower arrangements have long been a popular way to pay tribute to lost loved ones. Funeral flowers are also a beautiful way to honor the life of the deceased while providing comfort to grieving family and friends. While the decision to create keepsakes from funeral flowers is a personal one, we believe that these sentimental items can play an important role in the healing process. Keepsakes made from funeral flowers can help to fill the void left by a loss, and they serve as physical reminders of the love and support of family and friends.
In addition, keeping funeral flower arrangements can provide comfort and peace of mind knowing that the memories of your loved one will always be with you.
We've been running our flower preservation business for a few years now, and we've noticed a trend among our customers. More and more people are coming to us asking for help in creating funeral flower keepsakes. We soon realized how important these keepsakes could be for grieving families. After all, funeral flowers are often one of the few things that guests take with them after the service. By creating keepsakes, families have something to remember their loved ones by long after the flowers have faded. What's more, these keepsakes can be passed down from generation to generation, serving as a reminder of the deceased for years to come. We're honored that our customers trust us to create such meaningful keepsakes, and we're always happy to help out in any way we can.
It would seem that we have turned a corner. Many more of us than ever before want to create memories and keepsakes that last. Yes, it is nice to have photographs, but there is nothing like "saying it with flowers."
Creating funeral flower keepsakes is not a request that your average florist will be able to handle. Instead, it is best to turn to someone who specialises in preserving flowers. The team at Magenta Flowers has considerable experience in preserving flowers and creating treasured keepsakes. If you feel that this is right for you, all you have to do is to get in touch with us. We will work with you to create beautiful flower arrangements that capture the essence of your loved one. These arrangements can then be preserved so that you can cherish them for years to come.
This blog post will walk you through the process of preserving your loved ones' funeral flowers so that they can be enjoyed for years to come. We offer different types of preservation, which are tailored specifically towards what is important in each situation, so will also cover the most popular keepsakes we offer!
Sending Your Fresh Flowers To Be Preserved:
Sending us your fresh flowers is pretty straightforward, whether a funeral wreath or a more traditional floral arrangement, but we know how daunting it is to send flowers with sentimental value away. You are able to drop them off to us directly, but we understand not everyone is within a close radius of our office, so here's a quick guide on packing your flowers. First, you'll need to wrap the steps in some damp paper towels, followed by some tin foil, and secure it. Then select a box of an appropriate size and ensure you pack any remaining space with paper to avoid them moving in transit. You can find more about this on our Sending Us Flowers
page. When your flowers will arrive safe and sound, you'll receive an email from us letting you know that we have them safe and sound.
Here at Magenta Flowers, we understand that not everyone can send funeral arrangements straight away. With years of experience, we have some tips and tricks to help keep your flowers fresh until you're able to send them. Flower food is a must for lengthening the lifespan of flowers, but apart from this, there are some other things you can do. Take flowers out of sunlight and place them in a cool room - we recommend placing flowers in the fridge if you have the space. Ensuring flowers have fresh water with flower food in is also a suggestion we give to all customers. Doing this will help your flowers stay fresh for longer. So, if you need to delay sending your funeral arrangement, follow our advice and your flowers will still look beautiful when they arrive at our workshop.
What Happens To The Funeral Arrangements At Our Workshop?
Once we receive your flowers, we will have to deconstruct the arrangement in order to place the flowers in their drying process, this normally means removing flowers from any floral foam or wire and trimming the stems. This drying process ensures that your flowers will stay fresh for a lifetime and they will remain safely kept away in their drying process until our team is ready to start the production of your items. The great thing about this process is that it allows us to keep your flowers safe and secure while we work towards creating your beautiful custom product.
Once your flowers are ready to be moved to the production table, you'll be notified. The amount of time this process takes can really depend on the size of your item. We'll arrange your flowers within the resin mold or within the bereavement box, making sure to meet any specific requirements you have that you sent over to us. It's so important to include specific requirements so we know what you're envisioning for your design. For example, this can be something as simple as including a lily in your resin heart, incorporating orchids into the bereavement box, or making sure a red rose is included in the paperweight you ordered. By ensuring we have all the details we need, we can create a design that you'll love and that perfectly captures your chosen moment.
The final stage of creating your keepsake would be perfecting the item. There's a lot that can go into finishing an item, resin items need to be sanded, polished, and made shiny before they are sent out to you. Whereas, a bereavement box will require the flowers secured down with floral foam or floral tape, and a pressed flower frame will need to be glued in place. Our team will always ensure they handle items and flowers with care as we know just how special these keepsakes are to our customers. Each item is given the time and attention needed to make sure it meets our high standards before being sent out to you. You'll even receive photos before we post them so you can ensure your item is how you envisioned it because we understand how important these items are to our customers, and we want you to be sure that your keepsake is perfect.

A keepsake is often something so simple as a necklace or other piece of jewellery. That being said, we know that there are many who like to have their memories on display. In that case, you can create a display by using the letters in their name. Alternatively, you can spell out what they meant to you or focus on your personal relationship. For instance, a keepsake saying "sis" can mean the world to someone who has lost a sister or even send us a photo to include within your keepsake.
Maybe the person or four-legged friend that you lost, had a favourite flower. If so, let us help you to create the best memory we can from that one flower.

Funeral Flower Keepsake Ideas
When it comes to remembering a loved one, there are few things more special than a beautiful arrangement of funeral flowers. And at our funeral home, we have a wide range of ways to help you create the perfect keepsake. From stunning paperweights to gorgeous wall displays, we have something for everyone.
Frame Your Love One's Flowers
One of our most popular keepsakes is our wall art. These pieces are carefully crafted using the finest flowers, and they make a beautiful addition to any home. They take a bit longer to put together, but they're definitely worth the wait, this can be in a form of a pressed flowers frame
which is the perfect way to hang your memories.
A bereavement box
, also known as a shadow box, is a great option for those of you looking for a more personal way to hang your memories. The size of the Shadow Box allows us to fit more personal items inside, such as clothing, photos, and funeral flowers from a family member or friend. We can even recreate the funeral arrangement so, for example, if you loved the funeral wreath, we'll reconstruct this in the frame and recreate the wreath you sent us to ensure the memory lives on forever. This is an impressive option for those of you who want to keep the memory of your loved ones alive.
Capture Your Loved One's Funeral Flowers With Resin
If you're looking for something a bit more personal, our paperweights
are perfect. You can create a small bouquet or preserve an arrangement of individual flowers and greenery. It allows you to add a wide range of flowers from bigger red roses or smaller flowers such as the baby's breath. Either way, it's a beautiful way to remember your loved one.
Carrying Someone Close To Your Heart with Real Flowers in Jewellery
We also know that you may want to keep them close to your heart. That's why we offer the service of turning flowers into beautiful pieces of jewellery. Whether you have your own idea or would like some inspiration from us, we would be more than happy to help you create a unique and meaningful keepsake. We can't promise that we'll be able to use whole flowers, but we can definitely include petals. And because of that, you could create numerous keepsakes for family members to celebrate their loved one's life. If you're interested in this service visit our Resin Jewellery
Lighting A Candle Made From Their Floral Arrangement
On occasion, lighting a candle for a loved one helps us to bring back precious memories. We have created a range of tealight candle holders just for such occasions. Incorporating favourite flowers or funeral floral arrangements as part of the tealight candle holder
is a fantastic way of taking some personal time out and remembering someone.
The act of lighting the candle and giving them a few moments of your time will make you feel so much better. It will bring back time spent together and offer you peace of mind. The scent of the candles and the soft light they emit will help to relax you, as well as provide comfort knowing that you are taking some time out to remember your loved one. We are confident that you will be impressed with our range of tealight candle holders and that they will help you to create many cherished memories.
Keepsakes For Furry Friends
We know how much you loved your furry friend, and we want to help you keep their memory alive. That's why we offer animal keepsakes. Using your pet's hair, we can create a special memento that will help you keep their memory alive forever. We're always touched by the stories our customers share with us about their pets, and we're honoured to be able to help them preserve those memories.
