Make a festival flower crown with me with Bloomlocal flowers

Thursday, July 21, 2022

I love having flowers around the house in summer to help brighten the place up a little, particularly in summer. It's such a delight to come home to a bright bouquet on my dining room table or at my kitchen window. 

I often find that I don't have time to go to a florist in-person and supermarket flowers just never seem to last as long as I'd like, so I often buy my fresh flowers online. 
Bloomlocal is an online flower retailer which allows you to pick hand-tied bouquets in a variety of arrangements that can be delivered the same day (if ordered before 2 pm).

My favourite flowers are normally a mix of purple daisies and sunflowers. I think the contrast of the yellow and purple hues with green stems is just a lovely mix. I found that the Bloomlocal Summer Holiday Bouquet is a perfect match for me. This contains an assortment of cottage garden favourites including sunflowers, daisies, asters roses and stocks. 

Although mostly I like to display my flowers in a traditional vase, I do like to have fun with my flowers and use them in different ways. Accessorizing with flowers, particularly for events like festivals is one of my favourite things to do. 

Using the flowers from the Summer Holiday bouquet I've created a flower crown that's easy to do, even for someone like me who isn't exactly crafty.

I picked some of the daisies and greenery from the bouquet as wanted something simple for a festival-themed garden party - I kept the rest of the bouquet on display and they lasted over a week when I followed the care instructions making sure to use the flower food provided and change the water. 

To make the crown, I took a thin, elastic hairband I already had at home and cut the flowers down to size. Then I carefully wrapped the hairband around the stems and secured them with hair grips and some thin thread. Then attach the hairband to your head and arrange the flower further to suit the shape of your face/head. I spaced the daisies out a little but you could add as many as you like. I also added a few extra hair grips to keep the crown secure. 

This was perfect for my party and something I'd definitely wear next time I go to Glastonbury. Bloomlocal flowers would be so handy for this as they last really well and you could arrange for them to be delivered to you the day before the festival.
