I used to love pressing flowers in massive thick books when I was a child. Not just flowers, leaves, grass, anything. But it's one of those things you forget about when you're in your 20s.
I guess the priorities shift a bit when you're learning to survive not just on pesto pasta and you have to deal with life's big questions like: Are these shoes worth me paying rent two weeks late? I learned to cook and to put rent before shoes (adulthood = fun police) so now my mind is free for the prettier things of life. Thanks to my procrastination partner in crime, Pinterest, I realised I'm actually really into pressed flowers again these days. I especially like them on food, though actually I only know I like them there aesthetically, I never tasted one of those pretty biscuits or donuts before. But things that pretty can only taste nice right? I have the same with wine bottles, if they get the label right, the wine must be to my taste as well I always think. Well, have a look below for ideas of what to do with pressed flowers. My friend still has a flower press and we're trying it this week. So exciting!
