Ever since I began making the WallFlowers I would get people asking me to press their wedding flowers but unfortunately it was almost always too late by the time they'ed asked me and their flowers had already started to wilt. So I'd been mulling it over trying to think of a way to elevate this pain point for people getting married (see my blog post on pressing your wedding flowers). I had the loose tendrils of an idea.
I'd been sitting on this idea for almost a year now but I just had no idea where to start, not to mention already being incredibly busy building WildBird Studio up. So I don't really know what kick up the arse I got to go ahead and do this but I woke up one day in early 2019 and said feck it i'm gonna try get this done.
Off I went and chatted to a few people who know things I don't, and figured out the ins and outs of what I needed to do. There I was gently chipping away at the various elements, until I got the call to do Bloom in the Phoenix Park, and lo and behold the perfect launch for the Flower Press.
Needless to say I had to ramp it up a few gears and get organised. With just 2 weeks to go until Bloom I finally have most of the pieces in place! So in the spirit of my mentor who likes to say 'Done is better than perfect' I give you my very own branded flower press.
After receiving a beautiful wild flower picture created by wildbird studio from my niece living in New Zealand ( no way to send pressies with covid) I looked up the website I was so impressed.
I saw they made wild flower presses and thought I’d order one as I love wild flowers and being a bit creative. It arrived this morning. It is really beautifully made and I can’t wait to get started. Seriously impressed and loving both my gift and my purchase. Well done.
