Pressed Flowers Are Back & We Love It

Pressed flowers may have been a past-time of your mother or grandmother back in the day, but this 70’s trend has undergone something of a revival recently and is now a hot new wedding styling trend.

Since Japanese floral artist and botanical sculptor Azuma Makoto wowed the crowd with her stunning display of plants in frozen blocks of ice at the spring/summer 2017 Dries Can Noten Paris Fashion Week, the wedding industry has been captivated by the idea of pressed and translucent flowers.

Pressed flowers are a beautiful and creative way to bring the outdoors in, and enjoy the very best of what mother nature has to offer. To create your own pressed flowers at home place the flower face down in a heavy book such as a encyclopaedia or a telephone book lined with parchment or wax paper, close the book, weigh it down and leave undisturbed for 7 to 10 days.

You can then display the pressed flowers between planes of glass or in picture frames as either table numbers or seating charts.
