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 handmade with shavings from the tapioca plant or soft balsa wood. In person they feel like a thick spongy paper. Due to being handmade no two flowers are exactly alike. Some brown spots will be on some of the flowers due to being made from natural materials.

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 our designs are all keepsake items, you can order and receive your flowers several months before your event! We recommend ordering no later than 1 month before the event to avoid rushed delivery fees.

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.

How do I care for sola flowers & your designs?

Sola flowers are more durable the fresh flowers, but they are still fragile. Handle them gently. Store indoors in a dry place. Direct sunlight through a window eventually will fade the flowers and greenery.

How long will your designs and sola flowers last?

Forever! All of our designs are meant to be keepsakes.

Can I add scents to the sola flowers?

Yes. You can apply few drops of oil-based scents to the flowers. Scents that we sell in our shop will last for several weeks and you can re-apply the scent as often as desired.

Wholesale availability

We sell sola flowers and our scents wholesale to US based companies only at this time. Please message us for more information.
