The Fresh Flower Crown

One of my favorite summer floral accessories is definitely the flower crown or halo. There’s something very sensual and romantic about wearing flowers in your hair. And, it’s not something that should be exclusive to weddings, they’re perfect for most any occasion - birthdays, summer gatherings, baby showers, garden parties - the possibilities are endless.

The flower crown, a symbol of love, fertility and celebration, has been a popular accessory all over the world for centuries. It’s origin dates back to ancient Greece and it's immersed in tradition and meaning. Flowers represent celebration, while crowns often stand for honor, so combining flowers and crowns couldn't be more natural. In addition, they’re so easy to create and personalize. You can be as extravagant or be as simple as you want to – from large, vibrant flowers like pincushions and protea to a few simple stems of serruria or sprigs of waxflower.
