When I found out about The Floral Preservation Co. I was so excited to feel like I could do something with my wedding bouquet I have kept hung and is slowly falling apart. I knew it would eventually self-destruct into nothing and then I’d have nothing left but the fabric and stems.
This is what a 14 year old (15 years in January) looks like. It is as dried out as can be. I am not handy with flowers or gardening so I did not know what options I had to save my bouquet. I even saw video on The Floral Preservation Co that said I can revive flowers as old as 10 years! Mine are half a decade older than that! I gave it a try anyway and I am so happy I did.
I followed their suggestion on fully submerging them for several hours to rehydrate. Once rehydrated I was able to use the included tweezers to manipulate them a bit to fan out for pressing.
I used the Floral Preservation Kit – DIY Flower Preserving Kit and it came with all I needed to press and re-dehydrate my wedding bouquet. It even comes with a pretty smelling finishing spray. I just needed my microwave and a pressing frame I ordered for the final results.
I love how they turned out. This is after drying them back out, pressing and spraying with the finishing spray. I was one day away form my frame arriving that I ordered so after spraying I just left them out overnight on this included drying towel and they were perfect.
The Floral Preservation Kit is perfect for saving everlasting memories. As opposed to discarding beautiful flowers for milestones like Proms, Weddings, Funerals etc. Save them in a state that can be passed down from generation to generation. This makes a great gift for newlyweds or those engaged! Also great to save for other milestones making it a great unique Holiday gift for just about anyone.
