Our floral trays are more than just functional homeware; they're little pieces of floral art, meticulously crafted to bring a touch of nature's beauty into your everyday life. But have you ever wondered what goes into creating these vibrant trays? Today, we're taking you behind the scenes to explore the process, from flower selection to the finished product.

A Symphony of Color and Symmetry:

The heart of each floral tray lies in the arrangement of the flowers. We take inspiration from the mesmerizing patterns of a kaleidoscope, meticulously positioning the pressed blooms to create a sense of symmetry that radiates outward from the center. This thoughtful arrangement ensures that every tray is unique, a captivating display of color and form.

Nature's Palette at Its Finest:

We use a variety of pressed and dried flowers in our creations. Each blossom is hand-selected for its vibrant color and unique characteristics. From delicate baby's breath to bold hydrangeas, the variety ensures a tray that complements any décor. Frequently the flowers are dyed to increase their vibrancy, resulting in a stunning explosion of color that's sure to turn heads.

Preserved in Crystal Clarity:

Once the floral arrangement is complete, the magic happens. We carefully suspend the composition in crystal-clear table-top resin, creating a flawless finish that preserves the beauty of the flowers for years to come. The resin acts as a protective layer, safeguarding the delicate blooms while allowing their natural beauty to shine through.  Table-top resin cannot be poured in large, deep quantities, so we frequently need to repeat the pours two or three times.

A Labor of Love:

Creating each floral tray is a labor of love, a process that takes dedication and time. The meticulous arrangement of the flowers can take anywhere from one to three hours, ensuring a balanced and captivating design. The curing time for the resin adds an additional few days to the process, but the result is a truly unique and everlasting piece.

When you purchase a floral tray, you're not just getting a functional home accessory; you're acquiring a piece of art. Each tray is a one-of-a-kind creation, a testament to the beauty of nature and the artistry of handcrafted design. We believe these trays will add a touch of elegance and vibrancy to any space, serving as a constant reminder of the beauty that surrounds us.
