There's a cult following obsessed with Marian McEvoy's (aka Gust the Poodle) pressed flower compositions. We fell under its spell as well. This masterful and naive composition of pressed poppies is certain to pop any brunch, dinner, or al fresco tablescape.

Customize your place cards with your guest's names. With numerous fonts to choose from, you can have your cards arrive perfectly calligraphed with your guest's names printed on the backs. That's one less thing for you to do, and it's complimentary for the first pack. We even include a blank card called "Try your hand" to test your writing instrument if you choose to write your names yourself, or send them out to your calligrapher.

Conversation Sparker: Pressed flower practice, called oshibana, dates back to 16th century Japan. In fact, samurai warriors were said to have created oshibana as one of their disciplines to promote patience, harmony with nature and powers of concentration. Through trade, the art form spread to Europe culminating in the height of popularity during the Victorian era. Princess Grace Kelly, a practitioner, promoted the artform worldwide.
