Several years ago one of my husbands aunts passed away and at the memorial service each family member was given a rose. That rose stayed on the dashboard of his car for a very long time, dried out and was eventually thrown away. After our wedding a few years ago my bouquet became a beautiful center piece in our house for a little bit then of course they died.
Now I know that artist Juliana Alonso could have beautifully preserved my wedding bouquet and my husbands rose. She then could have created one of a kind pieces that would have served as beautiful memories and home decor. I call it “The Art of Precious Memories!” Juliana is the queen of custom flower preservation heirloom art!
