FUNNY HAT FRIDAYS: DIY fresh ivy flower crown, McLaren Vale

FUNNY HAT FRIDAYS: DIY fresh ivy flower crown @ McLaren Vale

For my brother’s birthday last November, he organised for us to go in a mini bus to a pretty winery in McLaren Vale, a wine region in south of Adelaide. This was prior to my moving to the Barossa (another wine region to the north)… I was going to say “so being surrounded by vineyards was still a novelty”, but to be honest even after some eight months here, I still marvel at the views!

Anyway, me being me, I couldn’t pass up the opportunity to do an impromptu photoshoot in a new location for me (I had never been to McLaren Vale before). And what better crown to wear to a winery than one of vines! Fortunately, my sister-in-law was part of the birthday party, so I had a photographer on hand for a few quick snaps.

FUNNY HAT FRIDAY- DIY Easter egg & Birdnest fascinator

FUNNY HAT FRIDAYS: DIY Easter Egg & Bird Nest Fascinator

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.

DIY leucodendron fresh flowercrown photoshoot

FUNNY HAT FRIDAYS: Leucadendron Fresh Flower Crown

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.

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. 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.

FUNNY HAT FRIDAY: My 21st Birthday Fresh Flowercrown

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.

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.

Funny Hat Friday: Daisies and fresias fresh flowercrown with overalls

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.
