Frequently asked questions
How long do dried flowers last?
Dried flowers can last for years to come if they are provided with the right care.
Mama Bloom selects flowers and foliage for their longevity so that your creation will last for many seasons to come.
Typically dried flowers will begin to lose some of their colour after 6-12 months but i believe this fading adds to their charm.
How do i care for my dried flowers?
Keep them out of direct sunlight to minimise colour fade, just like most things they will slowly fade with continual sun exposure. We believe this adds to their charm.
Keep them away from moist areas in your home, too much moisture can cause mould growth.
Keep your creation indoors and away from any strong breezes.
If they get dusty try a hairdryer on a low cool setting.
Some shedding is to be expected especially with grasses and seed pods. The occasional spray with hairspray will help the seeds to hold.
Where do you source your flowers?
One of our core values is community. For us this means taking a people first approach and supporting other small New Zealand businesses.
We source 80% of our flowers from local growers. The rest we source through wholesalers and we also import a small amount of preserved and dyed product ourselves.
How do i hang my wreath?
We recommend hanging your wreath with a clear 3M hook.
Do you do custom pieces?
Yes, we love to create custom pieces! We create pieces for your home or business and work with commercial clients as well. From custom bouquets and wreaths to larger installations.
If you are interested in having a custom piece made please feel free to
get in touch and we can discuss your ideas further.
I like a piece from a previous collection are you able to make me another one?
Every piece we create is unique. Often we can achieve a similar look by using the same or similar materials but no two pieces will be the same. This is the beauty of working with unique naturally materials.
