Whether you’re planning a wedding or not, there’s something whimsical about flower crowns. The trend has taken off in recent months, with more brides choosing a flower crown over a veil. Not only is it a statement piece, with a little direction, you could make one yourself.
A fun way to spend an afternoon with your bridal party, here’s an inside look at a flower crown workshop with Lili Schaap, owner and head designer at Floral Design by Lili in Abbotsford. Here's what Lili had to say:
Flowers are naturally beautiful, but what motivates me is the creation of something that inspires and excite my clients. We source local flowers, grow some of our own, seek organic farmers and scour the globe for novelty blooms that set us apart from other designers.
On flower crowns
The whole idea of having a floral crown workshop was to show old and new generations a simple technique to put together beautiful crowns and other pieces, so they can enjoy crafting them for their daughters, granddaughters, moms, sisters, bridesmaids, flowers girls and even for their husband or brothers.
On the workshop
When I decided to have this workshop, I spoke with Roxana Albusel to see if she would be interested in participating and photographing the event. Jenna Montroy of Ribbon & Lace Event Styling helped to organize the space and details.
