Funny Hat Friday: Post-wedding native flower crown

FUNNY HAT FRIDAYS: Playing with Australian Native Flowers

Once my beloved brother and sister-in-law left for their honeymoon (exciting!), I was left all the bridal bouquets and table flowers to play with. Fresh flowers galore! And that (of course) meant another Funny Hat Friday fresh flower crown.

My sister-in-law loves Australian natives, and chose a palette of deep reds and whites, with carnations, Geraldton wax, proteas and leucadendrons, accompanied by blue gum and silvery-blue wattle foliage.

It made for a very pretty and elegant look for the table settings, bridal bouquets, bridesmaids hair wreaths and men’s boutonnieres (I unfortunately don’t have many of the photos from the wedding photographer yet to show you).

For my flower crown, I wanted to use a pair of huge proteas as a eye catchers, with some small leucadendrons and carnations as accents along the back.

Actually, I wanted the two proteas to be along the front, but I underestimated their size and weight. So I prefer wearing it with the two large flowers at the back.
