I hope you all had a blessed Easter! I am currently living in Kapunda for my rural hospital placement, but came home to Adelaide for the Easter long weekend. During this time, I made an appropriately themed fascinator and headed to the river with next to the university to take a few photos! It was a bit spontaneous, so I just used what materials were available to me since all the shops were closed. (more…)
One of my best friends recently became an Australian citizen at a ceremony on January 26th. With permission, I took home one of the numerous leftover bunches of native flowers from the townhall. I initially intended to make this flower crown with silver eucalyptus leaves as well, but I found the leucadendrons to be rich and full enough on their own.

Every spring, without fail, the little plum trees lining my avenue slowly erupt into a glorious bloom of pale pink blossoms. It is really a sight to behold, and its also fun to see their tiny petals gather along the roadside with each passing day as I walk to and from the bus stop. So last September (2016) I couldn’t resist but to make a cherry blossom flower crown.
I recently turned 21, an important milestone in many cultures. And as such, I wanted to celebrate with all of my friends and family in a way that was quintessentially me: dancing to DJ and live band, food, fairylights and flowercrowns. (more…)
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.
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.
For those who don’t know, my brothers and I are event DJs who often play for wedding receptions. On a semi-related note, something I learnt from my own brother’s wedding is that even for flower-lovers such as my sister-in-law and I, there are simply too many flowers to take home. And so, rather than let all the flowers go to waste, as part of our pack-up for the night I have started asking for some of the extra table flowers that would be thrown out otherwise (hehehe). The last wedding we DJ’d at had lots of lovely ball chrysanthemums- cue a Funny Hat Friday. (more…)
