Elopement Flowers

This very special crown and boutonniere were a result of an offhand comment made on my Instagram.  The question was: would you wear a flower crown? And the answer from my eldest sister was, "yes, if it were tiny red rosebuds."

A few fine pieces of red crepe paper later I decided I could make that crown for her.  An Instagram post of my work in progress prompted this response from my sister: "I think I'll get married in it."

Wow! I went back to work and re-did the crown as if it were for the Duchess of Cornwall! (Incidentally, my sister and her now-husband own a farm in Cornwall, NY.)

Love.
