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…)
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…)
My mother bought some lilies to beautify the house while our relatives were visiting. Lilies are always best when bought as closed buds that promise to unfurl into delicate ruffle petals that eventually produce beautiful, full blooms. Once our relatives had left, what choice had I but to make a fresh flower crown?
As you are probably aware, I love hats. Not only can they be striking accessories, they are incredibly important for sun safety! So for my birthday last year (a picnic mountain hike), I was determined to have a sunhat to protect me from the sun and be a beautiful birthday statement.
My new sister-in-law (hooray!) once expressed wishes of having a fresh flower crown for her wedding. After much thought, she eventually decided to go instead for a smaller sprig of flowers for a more elegant look (a perfect choice in the end!). But I knew, her fresh flower crown dreams persisted, and there is nothing more wonderful than to create something for someone you love. During preparation for her bridal shower before the wedding, I was determined to make these dreams come true. (more…)
