What type of bouquet is it? Can you post a photo?

Perhaps enclose it under a cloche? Or take a few stems and frame the single buds in small shadow boxes and hang in a salon style hanging?

I got mine freeze dried and framed. I have it hanging in my master bedroom. I love it, everytime I look at it it reminds me of our day!

P.s. sorry the photo isn’t rotated! The editor wouldn’t let me?

@whitums:  In that case I second my idea about enclosing it in a cloche, like below:

@whitums:  I’m going to freeze dry my bouquet too, and here is what I’ll do with it:

I have a big, beautiful brown leather accounts book that I put pressed flowers in. I love to press flowers but this book is for my favourite flowers. Some are just really gorgeous, but some are special: my BM bouquet at my best friend’s wedding, the flowers SO gave me on our 3rd anniversary, the bouquet my mom brought me when I gave birth, and a rose from my grandpa’s funeral. I’m so excited to add my wedding bouqet and FH’s boutonniere to it! 

I wouldn’t say I was a really sentimental person, I just love flowers and having a little keepsake from important moments in my life is awesome. Especially when I can keep them tucked away in a book, rather than cluttering up my house (I have other trinkets for that, lol).  Your bouquet is really beautiful, by the way. It’s so colorful and summery!
