Everybody loves the beauty of fresh flowers – but it can be difficult to keep them alive and fragrant for a long time. In a tropical country like Singapore, the wilting process is sped up due to the high heat and humidity in the air. While some simple flower care tips can go a long way to helping you maintain your fresh bouquet, fresh flowers might not be the best option if you’re looking for low-maintenance gifts or home decor ideas.
Thankfully, more long-lasting alternatives have become popular recently so you can still enjoy your bouquet without worrying about wilt and rot! Preserved flowers (sometimes called frozen flowers) have the same stunning beauty as fresh flowers, but without you having to worry about the petals falling off or becoming discoloured. Our preserved flower domes are a timeless, thoughtful, and sentimental gift that will make the recipient happy for a long time. Here’s what you need to know about handling preserved flowers in Singapore before giving them to that special someone in your life:
How are preserved flowers made?
Each florist might have their own unique process, but there are some common steps taken when preserving flowers. Real fresh flowers are cut when they are in full bloom and look the best, before being dehydrated and treated with fluids such as alcohol. This preserves the shape and colour of the petals, so that they look exactly like fresh blossoms from afar. Hence why they’re also called ‘frozen’ flowers as they appear frozen in time.
Our preserved flowers are handcrafted into small bouquets, pairing beautiful classics such as pink and red roses with more delicate blossoms and fillers like baby’s breath. The bouquets are encased in a mini dome that makes them perfect for displaying on a shelf or table. Whether you’re buying the flowers for yourself or as a gift for someone else, the mini dome ensures you can have them nearby for when you just want to admire their delicate beauty.
Each bouquet is put together with a particular theme in mind – from the romantic Mystic Red Preserved Flower Dome that makes for an ideal anniversary gift, or the timeless Ever After Preserved Flower Dome that would be a great present for your mum on her birthday.

How long can preserved flowers last?
Our preserved flower domes can last for months or even years if taken care of properly. Preserved flowers do not require any watering or nutrients, but cracks or breaks in the dome may cause exposure to air leading to discoloration or damage.
To ensure your preserved flowers last for as long as possible, avoid any contact with water, direct sunlight, strong heat, or strong winds such as direct air-conditioning. Be careful not to drop or crush the flowers if they have to be taken out of the dome – preserved petals are still somewhat fragile, and crushing them could damage your bouquet.
