Floral headpieces certainly make a statement,

Floral headpieces have been appearing at Spring Racing Carnival with hats and fascinators adding more colour and creativity to the atmosphere!

Brides are now also wearing flowers in their hair, no longer just for flowergirls

Last week some florists braved a 4 a.m. start at the Melbourne Flower Market to participate in floral crown workshops in preparation for Melbourne Cup!

Thank you to all florists who rise so early in the day to get to market and then create beautiful blooms for us to enjoy….

If you are interested in making a floral headpiece for yourself or organising a date with friends, there are many floral crown workshops around Melbourne.

Here are just a few places to get you started, please check their website for details.
