flower crowns

Hi friends!  Today I would like to share a project that I did as part of my floral design class.  I created two flower crowns with fresh flowers!  I absolutely loved making these, and two of my lovely coworkers were kind enough to model for me.

Orange isn't usually a color that I'm drawn to, but these incredible orange roses just enchanted me.  I kept this crown simple to let the roses remain the focal point, only adding some greenery and a touch of baby's breath

Color was also the inspiration for my second flower crown.  Since the orange crown is so bright, I wanted my second crown to be a bit more wild and moody.  I fell in love with these deep plum purple carnations, and accented them with purple waxflowers and sprig's of baby's breath.

I so enjoyed making these crowns.  Floral design is incredibly inspiring to me, and I can lose track of hours while I'm working on a floral project.  Creating with flowers is both soothing and exciting to me, and I can't wait to share more of my floral designs with you!

special thanks to Rachel and Alex for being such beautiful models!

    1. Thank you so much, Joy! I'm so glad you're enjoying the blog. The orange crown was so fun to make-- I'm not usually an orange girl but there was something so enchanting about those orange miniature roses!

  2. Even when recuperating at home some patients should not be around live plants and flowers. In these cases your florist can suggest alternatives such as artificial flowers or flower art crafted in crystal or other media. 24hrscityflorist.com
