B&B DIY: Fresh Floral Crowns & Rings

FLORAL CROWNS 4

You may or may not know that recently we were invited on a trip to Tuscany by event planners Italian Eye as part of their Kaleidotour, a 4 day tour of Tuscany showcasing their planning skills to the max with beautiful food, settings and events, plus a photoshoot on the final day featuring our dresses {more of that later}

As well as eating lots of amazing food including breakfasts each day by the infamous Instagram foodies Symmetry Breakfast and being cooked for by michelin starred chef Mauro Quirini , drinking waaaaaaay too much wine {a little glass at lunch is like, SO civilised} and seeing a whole host of beautiful venues, one of our highlights had to be the fresh flower crown and ring making workshop, held by the uber cool florist Jardin Divers.

If you follow us on Instagram you would have seen a few snaps of us with our crowns and floral rings, including these pics above, and as you all seemed to like what you saw we thought we’d share a little step by step guide to make your own! Now when we say this was fun we mean fun with a capital FUH and also SO easy to do. Not to mention the infinite amount of photo opportunities they bring which Instagram will love you for. So if you fancy making your own ring or crown, here’s a little photo tutorial and if you do make your own then do please let us know by tagging us into your Insta photos.

Now go get those creative juices flowing…..

Floral Rings: We don’t know about you but we hadn’t seen this idea before and thought it was SO cute! Just create a little round base out of card and florist tape and attach a loop to fit around your finger. Then simply glue on greenery and flowers to create your very own fresh flower ring!
