To see a world
in a grain of sand
and heaven in a wild flower.
in the palm of your hand
and eternity in an hour.
– William Blake
One thing I was excited about in building my new studio space, was the anticipation of hosting fun events and workshops throughout the year. I started off with my first annual Motherhood event not long after the studio opened, which was so much fun celebrating all the beautiful mamas that came along for pampering and and a photo session with their babies. I then started planning this Flower Crown workshop with my amazing florist friend Anna. I am always in awe when she makes these beautiful floral creations, and thought that learning how to make a gorgeous flower crown would be the perfect fun afternoon for a group of mothers and their daughters.
We set off (way too) bright and early to the flower markets and selected all the beautiful blooms in the girls’ favorite colours (all the girls put down pink as their favorite colour on upon booking in to the workshop!) It was my first experience at the flower markets and I was like a kid in a candy store…so much pretty everywhere!
After a busy afternoon of prepping all the flowers and setting up the studio into a florist ‘s workspace, we were ready. I opened up the whole front of the studio to let in fresh air and a soft breeze and welcomed the girls and their mums into the studio.
Anna was the best teacher, showing the girls how to select the best flowers and greenery, and how to construct their crowns. The girls all did amazing and made the prettiest flower crowns.
Each girl then changed into their favorite outfit for photos to show off their creations.
I truly had too much fun and hope to do something similar again in the new year!
