There are many factors that will determine the longevity of your preserved arrangement. Ideally, the finished piece should be displayed in a temperature controlled environment, away from direct light or humid areas. The arrangement should be handled gently, without jarring or shaking. Rough handling may loosen delicate dried materials, or worse, break the frame seal, exposing the contents to moisture and insect damage. Even under ideal conditions, the flowers will naturally fade to a lovely Victorian antique color over time. However, with proper care and handling, your preserved arrangement should provide you with years, even decades, of memories and enjoyment.
