Today is about using fresh flowers to make pretty crowns just in time for spring…which is TODAY! Happy Spring everyone.
We recently brought a new team member on board, the most fantastic intern, Natalie who has been a great asset to our team. Her greatest skill in the LMP Office: flower arranging. Could she fit in any better?
She lead a flower crown making workshop for us and we of course turned it into a party. What a fun way to spend a morning with friends, huh?! We served a simple breakfast with fresh pastries, croissants and a enormous sweet brioche that we found at our local bakery. Abby brewed a pot of coffee and of course we toasted with pink bubbly.
If you plan to host a flower crown making party, ask your friends to dress for the season and no doubt they will pull out some pretty fabulous pops of color…
Here’s how you can make these flowers crowns with a few materials (easily found on Amazon) and a lotta flowers (if you live in warm climate then check your backyard first!).
Leafy florals (ie. Italian ruscus, babies breath, spray roses)
1. Take your floral wire and fit it around your head so that you know how long it needs to be.
2. Shape the floral wire into a circle and then twist the end in order to keep it in place at the length you need. (For added security, make the length even longer and wrap the extra around the crown to make it thicker).
3. Take your floral tape and begin wrapping it around the entire crown (Make sure you are gently pulling the tape as your wrap, so that the tape becomes sticky).
4. Begin making small bouquets with your flowers and greenery. Then wrap the ends with the floral tape.
5. Take a long piece of greenery and twist it around the crown, then secure with floral tape.
6. Add in the small bouquets and secure with floral tape, add or subtract to your liking.
7. Take some pictures and have fun!
