      For many young people, prom is the crowning event of their
      teenage years. Everything about the night is magical and
      they want to hang on to those memories. One of the most
      special parts of the evening is the gorgeous corsage her
      date chose with her and her lovely gown in mind. Those
      memories are meant to last, and you can help by preserving
      or drying her corsage so that it's almost as lovely as the
      day she received it.

      Among the most popular, tried, and true methods of
      preserving flowers is pressing them. This is an easy and
      effective method if you wish to place the flowers in a frame
      or scrapbook. To press flowers, you'll need:

      * Two pieces of corrugated cardboard.
      * Several sheets of newspaper or white paper towels.
      * A flat board.
      * A heavy weight (bricks work nicely).

      Once you've gathered the necessary materials, follow these
      easy steps:

      1. Place one sheet of cardboard on your work surface.
      2. Lay several sheets of newspaper on top of the cardboard.
      3. Arrange the flowers on top of the newspaper.
      4. Place several more sheets of newspaper over the flowers.
      5. Set the cardboard on top of the newspaper.
      6. Place the board on top of the newspaper.
      7. Put the weight on top of the board.

      Place the flower press in a warm dry room and allow two to
      three weeks. Check the flowers every two to three days and
      change the papers to prevent molding and help the flowers to
      dry more quickly.

      Pressing works very well if you wish to yield
      one-dimensional flowers in the end. However, if you'd like
      your flowers to retain their shape, you'll need to try
      another method, such as simple air-drying. To air dry your
      flowers:

      1. Secure the corsage to a hanger or hook so that it can
      hang loosely upside down.
      2. Hang the flowers in a warm, dark, dry room.
      3. Allow one to three weeks for complete drying.

      These two methods are the most commonly used at-home methods
      for preserving flowers, but there are several more. Other
      methods include chemical drying, preserving with glycerin,
      sand drying, and preserving with shellac. Some methods are
      certainly more difficult and costly than others, so you
      should do your research before embarking on this task. Ask
      your florist if he or she has any other ideas, tips, or
      services for flower preservation. With a little time and
      effort, you can keep prom memories fresh forever.
