FUNNY HAT FRIDAYS: Sakura Cherry Blossom Fresh Flowercrown

FUNNY HAT FRIDAYS: Cherry Blossom Fresh Flowercrown

Hello hello! If you’ve been following my Insta, you may recall a photo I shared of my street in the 2014.

Every spring, without fail, the little plum trees lining my avenue slowly erupt into a glorious bloom of pale pink blossoms.

So last September (2016) I couldn’t resist but to make a cherry blossom flower crown.

FUNNY HAT FRIDAY: Daisies and Fresias Fresh Flowercrown

Earlier this year, I was privileged to perform and choreograph for my medical school’s dance crew. Not only was it a memorable performance (even more so since it was the final year for a number of my graduating seniors), I was also lucky enough to receive a beautiful bouquet of daisies, fresias and sunflowers. After enjoying their beauty for a week, it was time to give them a new lease on life as a flowercrown.
