From $5 per box, CAJA POPCORN Forget dried fl owers collecting dust—there is a much chicer way to preserve your bridal bouquet. Creating both oil paintings and watercolors, Pat Fiorello (the artist behind Atlanta-based Fiorello Art & Design ), has developed a special expertise in painting bridal bouquets. Brides send Fiorello photos of the arrangement from a few different angles after the wedding for her to work from. “I love the exquisite fl owers that are used to celebrate, but they fade quickly,” says Fiorello. “There are some methods of preserving bouquets, like freeze-drying, but they never have the same vibrancy and softness of the originals.” The bouquet photos are typically recreated in oil paints on canvas, which start at $550 for a 12-by-12-inch painting and go up to $1,900 for a 20-by-20-inch, and even larger upon special request. Completion time is about two months. $550-$1,900, La Maison de la Bridal, Phipps Plaza, 3500 Peachtree Road, 800.397.5477,; patfi –Kelsey Bjelland FROM THIS DAY FORWARD Make your reception pop!
