I am a flower preservationist which means just what it sounds like; I give life to your flowers. My name is Debbie Flohr and I work out of New York’s Hudson Valley, servicing brides from throughout the tri-state area. My last name, Flohr, actually means flower in French. Seems like I was destined to work with flowers!
I have 3 young, beautiful, blue eyed boys who keep me on my toes and help me see the flowers all around us. I’m lucky that I get to do what I love and to work out of my home so I can juggle work and being a mom.
I have always been artistic: have taken art lessons for years. I have always enjoy creating things with my hands. I came across floral preservation almost by accident when I was looking for a way to hold onto my own bouquet after my wedding. In the eight years since, I have created countless keepsakes, helping brides to hold on to their wedding memories forever. I am passionate about creating one of a kind masterpieces for each couple that commemorate the most meaningful day of their lives.
If you are a bride who spent hours dreaming up the perfect wedding bouquet and can’t bear the idea of tossing it...don’t! Preserve it! It’s not only diamonds that are forever, with a little help from me, your flowers can last forever too.
Each wedding is unique- so is each keepsake Floral Preservation creates!
