Introducing ‘My Blooming Blogs’

Welcome to the beginning of a new season for Forever Blooming, and the first of our monthly blog posts. In this piece we’ll feature introductions to the team so you know who is behind the preservation of your precious memories, a general overview of what Forever Blooming can offer, and a little note on our processes.

Looking to the future, our monthly blog posts will dive into more specifics on what we can offer, what you need to know, and how we go about creating our signature statement pieces.

Forever Blooming has been a registered business for over 20 years and has always offered top quality flower and keepsake preservation, primarily for wedding arrangements. Current owner-operator Di Hampson has over two decades experience as an exhibiting artist in sculpture and painting. She has also been a paint and colour consultant since the early 90’s. This artistic combination guarantees high attention to detail and colour integrity in all of your precious flower and keepsake preservations.  

Forever Blooming is a family affair with Di ably assisted by her husband Bob who is a qualified carpenter and cabinet maker, and lovingly hand makes all of the custom frames and boxes. Their son also assists with the business admin and operations. All work is completed in-house in a fully air conditioned, purpose built workshop on Bribie Island, Queensland.

We understand how important it is to you that your memories are preserved properly to the highest professional and aesthetic standards. Professional preservation is a highly time and labour intensive process and we treat each piece as if it were memories of our own. To this end, we appreciate your understanding if our delivery seems to take a little while. Afterall, the initial drying process alone takes upwards of 6 weeks! We will sometimes wait even longer just in this initial phase to guarantee that your piece has the utmost advantage in long term integrity.

While historically Forever Blooming has focused on preserving wedding bouquets and will continue to do so, there is so much more to the services we can offer. Preservation and specialist framing can be used to treasure special memories from:

* Weddings

* Births and Christenings

* Anniversaries

* Funerals or Memorials

* Sporting Events

* Musical and other collectable memorabilia


We can professionally preserve and custom frame everything from the bride’s entire flower bouquet as a standalone piece, or maybe a collage piece from a wedding, christening, or memorial that includes photos, flowers, and other meaningful trinkets or printed excerpts of speeches. If you’re a sports or music fan who had a once-in-lifetime experience that you want to be able to admire and remember forever, we can also preserve and mount jerseys and winners’ sashes, ticket stubs with autographed music memorabilia, and more! Check out our gallery for some collage and format inspiration.

“The framing quality is fantastic. The overall presentation of our flowers is exceptional and above all of our expectations, the perfection in the finished product is what counts! Thank you for preserving our wedding bouquet. It was a great thrill when we finally received the well packaged delivery, we could not wait to open it! We are extremely happy with the outcome of the preservation of our flowers, thank you so much!”
