Using Pressed Flowers

  • Posted on November 6, 2011 at 1:19 pm

If you are thinking about having a morning or afternoon lunch wedding reception and need an inexpensive idea for decorating, try incorporating dried pressed flowers to bring in some color.  (They can usually be  found at craft supply stores like Michaels if you have in your area).  

Ways to incorporate:  Your invitations,  glue on to each table place card or seating cards, or use under clear plates on top of charger plate (preferably white).  Have tables set so when guests come to the table the flowers show through the clear plate.  If you are having any cold hors d’oeuvres like shrimp you can also buy the bowls that have the inner bowl and outer bowl which are made for placing water and decor (dried flowers) between and freezing.  This will bring the dried flowers from cocktail reception into your main meal.    

Last think to consider to incorporate would be  with “thank you notes”  tying it all together from beginning to end.
