Flower Crown Workshop

A few weeks ago my good friend Migle, owner of Your London Florist invited me to a workshop at her brand-new studio in Crew Hill, North London. You might have seen me mention Your London Florist before as they did all my wedding flowers.

At the workshop we learnt how to construct floral crowns from scratch. It was a really interesting and technical class. We trimmed garden roses down to size then threaded florist's wire through the stem, criss-crossing the wires before pulling them down and wrapping them with florist's tape. Once we had a pile of trimmed, taped flowers we are ready to start constructing the crown. We bunched together the flowers and foliage then wrapped the wires with tape working round gradually until all the flowers were incorporated. We also added a few succulents with the help of a hot glue gun. The lovely florists then showed us how to measure it round our heads to create a loop and tape the whole thing in place. Doesn't it look amazing! The best thing is the class was so thorough and well taught that I would definitely feel confident making myself a flower crown from scratch again. There was such a lovely bunch of women at the workshop that night, including Katie from Oh Squirrel who it's always lovely to catch up with
