morning I attended a delightful workshop on how to make a floral crown with Anna Cunningham from 'Florrie's. Flowers. Always.' The workshop was set up on the stage of the Mt Eden War Memorial Hall and was launched at the Crafternoon Tea pop up market. We were so immersed in our activity that we weren't even aware of the bustling craft market being held on the hall floor below us.
No sooner had we sat down and Anna had us twisting florists' wire around stems and taping them to the crown base, using floral tape. We were hooked immediately.
It took a little over an an hour to complete our floral crowns and was lovely to see the various colour and flower combinations. Working with flowers is such an uplifting activity and Anna's organised layout with everything we needed at hand, meant that each of us could leave at the end of the workshop with a completed crown. Creatively satisfying and thoroughly enjoyable!
Anna is a mobile florist, but you can find her in St Heliers during the week, and online at her website and on Facebook and Instagram @florriesflowersalways
My daughter was celebrating her 15th birthday and I managed to convince her to wear it briefly, but apparently not the coolest head gear for a 15 year old, so off it came. Very quickly.
