The Floral Preservation Co reached out offering their products, and I jumped at the chance to try. Toddler activities have been at the top of my list for some time. Plus, we spent so much time redesigning our backyard this year and growing a proper garden.
About The Company
The Floral Preservation Co makes it easy to preserve your flowers. It’s a fun activity and a great way to freeze memories in time. I remember saving flowers all the time when I was in high school, but never had a way to officially preserve them!
Floral Preservation Co Products
They offer products for all levels. For our activity, we used the Floral Preservation Kit, which is everything you need to get started. A great complement to that kit is the Floral Preservation Album. The album gives a place for these fun projects to live. If you’re looking to really dive in, explore the combo kit, which also includes a diffuser for drying flowers.

Emmie and I dried roses from our garden for our Flower Preservation Co project. I picked the roses because it’s the first plant I’ve grown outside that’s really rooted where I live. Our home is the first house that we’ve owned – not a condo. So, it’s special to save the moments around our ‘first house’ if that makes sense. In fact, you could tour it here, and check out how we redesigned the backyard here.

I used the microwave process with the flat board. It was SO easy to tie our roses to the flat board, wrap them in the special paper towels and dry them in the microwave in 20-30 second increments. I found the Floral Preservation Co instructions were so easy to understand. We dried our flowers within 10 minutes and then saved them in the memories book.
It’s a great activity to start with kids because it encourages them to save pieces of nature. I could see this being a great fit for families that like to camp, garden, or be outdoors in general. Plus, I think high school or middle school kids would love this as well. I remember keeping so many scrapbooks around that time period.
If you’re looking for a fun activity to jump into, I would definitely check out the starter kit, and as I said earlier, if you’re ready to dive in, I would explore the Flower Preservation Co combo kit. If you order, use the code 20JENNAYE for 20% off your order!
