In February of this year I had the pleasure of hosting a lovely group of 15 ladies celebrating a hens day with a flower crown workshop! Organised by Kerensa, Alison and friends, the afternoon was delightful.
I can't remember if it was my alarm or baby April (likely!) who woke me up at 4am for the flower markets, but it is always worth heading there nice and early because the stalls were abundant with paper daisies, roses, baby's breath - all perfect flower types for making flower crowns.
I adore these shared creative experiences. There's nothing quite like the atmosphere when working with gorgeously-scented fresh flowers in one hand, and with a glass of bubbly in the other. Even one or two of the more hesitant participants soon found their creativity flowing with a little gentle encouragement, and inspiration in the colourful flowers. And that's the lovely thing about flower-crown making - you can't really get it wrong! Sometimes the less-structured and more "wild" crowns are the most beautiful.
After the 2 hour workshop, the girls then made their way to the next venue - adorned with stunning flower crowns atop their heads.
