Back in December I made one of these for the flower girl at the wedding of the amazing Victoria and Ricardo of Outside In Studios - a stunning evening planned by Blush and Bowties that’s going to need a whole separate blog post because it was just sooooo good.
I got so much great feedback after I posted this crown in my Instagram stories - especially from fellow florists wanting to know how I made it - so I decided to put together a tutorial for you guys!
For this particular piece I used dried strawflower, as I wanted it to last the whole night and I didn’t want it to freeze (it was December and we are in Toronto, after all). I’ve done similar pieces with fresh flowers before - just keep in mind they probably won’t last more than a few hours if you go that route.
To see more examples of the “fresh” version, check out these stunning shots by Danijela Weddings. This one was made with pansies from my garden, modelled by Brynne Heath with hair and makeup by Shawnna Downing.
As always, thank you to my amazingly selfless friends Meredith McRae on the graphics and Cia Mellegers for all of the production on this video. She just started a really intense new job and somehow still found the time to film and edit this whole thing. I feel so lucky to have the friends that I do 😭
