FUNNY HAT FRIDAYS: Rose and daisy birthday fresh flowercrown + Faith in Fools 21st birthday

FUNNY HAT FRIDAYS: Rose and daisy 21st birthday fresh flowercrown with Faith in Fools

This flower crown was commissioned for the 21st birthday of my beloved friend, E,  from Faith in Fools. It was a house gathering that wasn’t too big, but lots of fun! The colour themes for the party were gold and berry hues (dark pink, deep reds, plum etc.), which is what she wanted for her flowercrown.

This was my first commissioned flowercrown (the one for my sister-in-law was made as a surprise), and my first time picking out flowers at the florist myself. E did not have any particular requests aside from the colour scheme and some rose-esque flowers. With my mother’s help, we bought an assortment of red and deep pink roses, as well as some mauve daisies. I also picked some white potato vines to balance out the large size and loud colours of the other flowers.

It was my first time working with roses, although I knew a bit of theory from disassembling leftover wedding bouquets. They are quite heavy with juicy stems and receptacles, so a bit of planning is required to attach it nicely to the flowercrown without over-balancing.

It was a wonderful party, she prepared some amazing tissue-paper flowers (as you can see from the header of this post), whimsical gold ornaments and strung balloons.
