Let's take a step back into the nostalgia of childhood, remember the fun you had picking your favorite little blooms outside and then laying them between the pages of your heaviest book? I don't know about you, but I couldn't wait for my floral treasures to be dried, pressed and brought to life again! Here we are today, bringing back the fun of this childhood activity. Whether you incorporate this trend into your everyday life with home décor or simply sprinkle it throughout the year's festivities, I'm sure "thistle" cheer you up!

Accessorize Your Life

Good morning! We all start our day deciding what to wear, and accessorizing is what brings it all together, right? Why not add a few pressed blooms to embellish your look. From jewelry to decorating your cell phone case, they'll add the perfect final touch.

There is nothing better than bringing the outdoors inside. Adding a few pressed blooms to your home décor pieces will brighten the room from floor to ceiling. From framed wall art to paper lanterns to decorative candles, having small elements of mother nature sprinkled throughout your home is bound to spark joy.

Don't you just love a party? Whether you're the host, the honoree or a guest, being surrounded by pretty things makes for a beautiful celebration. The best parties start with the invitation; after all, it sets the tone for the fun ahead! Using the same pressed flowers concept throughout the soirée ties it all together from the placemats and table numbers to the menus and party favors.
