One of the things that I miss most about living in the country is the green spaces. In Glasgow I am very lucky to be so close to a lot of beautiful parks and countryside but I do miss being able to step out of my door into a wilder space. Recently the trees have been turning glorious colours and on walks I’ve seen the bushes littered with bright berries, conkers and beechnuts.
I couldn’t resist making something with these lovely colours and textures so last weekend I took my scissors for a walk around my parents’ garden and did some foraging. I wanted to make a beautiful boho flower crown in my own style after having done so many for college which had to fit a certain style. These sorts of crowns seem to be everywhere in wedding magazines these days.
I had bought some flowers for the occasion but I hardly touched them having found such a bounty of brilliant material outside my own front door. These pictures show the fruits of my labours. It probably took me around two hours, and I was completely absorbed in the making process. This is one of things I love about floristry; that my mind is entirely in the moment and everything else disappears.
I’ve now developed a number a workshops that I can run for hen dos, birthday parties or any special occasion, and this flower crown is one of the activities on offer. So if you like the look of it and are planning an event or would like someone to lead an activity get in touch! firstname.lastname@example.org
I’ll soon be announcing some exciting news about Christmas Workshops in Glasgow and Stirling so watch this space! And for anyone who doesn’t already know , Briar Rose Design now has a facebook page so pop over and have a look if you want to take a gander at some of my recent designs.
