Pressed Flower Wedding Keepsake

pressedflowers_juliebouquet_detailMy daughter was married one year ago at New Year’s Eve and carried a beautiful bouquet of roses and greens designed by the artisans at Doylestown Flowers.¬† I’ve always loved pictures of pressed flowers, and thought it would be a lovely keepsake to save the flowers from her bouquet. While the happy couple were on their honeymoon I dried petals, greens and stems from her bouquet between pages of large books. Recently I chose some ivory parchment paper as a background and designed a simple picture from the dried items. A mat and silver frame completed the gift for their first anniversary.
