I know in the past I have said that dried flowers and taxidermy are my least favorite things to frame, but I should clarify now that properly pressed flowers are a joy to work with (untreated baby's breath was another matter entirely). A bride came in with these she'd saved from her bouquet. We worked for a while to come up with the above design. No weird angles, nothing to too fussy--just an elegant design like you'd find in an illustrated botanical guide.
These were done as a glass trap, sandwiched between two sheets of uv glass. The wall color will provide the background color.
We chose a simple pewter frame with some natural details, and I used some framing tricks to hold the glass in place behind the rabbet of the frame. Hanging hardware is out of the viewing area. I think the end result is fresh and modern because of the simplicity of the design and its perfect-squareness.
