About

Keepsake Floral Designs

When I graduated college with a Landscape Design Degree, I married my high school sweetheart who encouraged and supported my dream to start my own business. In 2001, I started The Backyard Gardener where I did both residential landscape design and floral design with fresh flowers for weddings and special events. I opened my ETSY shop in August of 2013 as another place for me to be creative in floral design and provide keepsake floral items. I love that now my designs can be enjoyed by others outside of my local community. I ship all across the US and also Internationally!

Frequently asked questions
What are sola flowers?

Sola flowers are not fresh flowers. They are handmade with shavings from tapioca or balsa tree bark. Because they are handmade, and made from natural materials, no two are exactly alike. Some brown veining are on some of the flowers due to being made from the bark of a tree. They feel like thick paper in person.

Do you use fresh greenery?

No, all greenery and filler flowers I use in my designs are real plant material that has either been air dried, or chemically preserved and dyed after it has air dried. This allows all my items to be kept as keepsakes after your event.

How far in advance before my event can I recieve my order?

Since all my items are keepsake items, you may keep your flowers 1 year or more before your event if you have a place to store them. They should be stored in a dry place with no humidity and no direct sunlight. Direct sunlight over time will eventually fade the flowers. After your event, you'll still be able to enjoy your keepsake items.

Are sola flowers fragile?

Yes! Although hardier than fresh flowers, sola flowers are still fragile and need to be handled with care. Our designs are carefully packed for shipping, but sometimes small tears or broken petals may occur due to shipping. Even if this happens, the flowers are still beautiful and usable.
