Today is National Flower Crown Day. The trend that has grown and grown in recent years in the world of fashion, particularly bridal fashion, now has its very own day. Quite right, too. Wearing a floral headpiece is an easy way to create a finishing touch that’s completely bespoke and perfect for you and your style: you can go bohemian, alternative and punky, subtle, or literally in-your-face massive and avant-garde. You can go to town with fresh flowers that match your bouquet, or you can create something that lasts and can be kept or handed down if you go faux. So many options!!
How National Flower Crown Day began
National Flower Crown Day was created by London florist Liz Inigo Jones of Blue Sky Flowers as a way to celebrate the trend, and encourage people nationwide to join in the festivities by wearing their own fresh or synthetic flower crown. It ran on 24th September, which is the date the last official day of summer falls upon.
About this styled shoot
To celebrate the second ever National Flower Crown Day, British floral crown and hair accessories maker, Rosadior, teamed up with Janey Anna Photography for this gorgeous photoshoot.
The shoot features silk flower crowns, all handmade by Rosadior’s owner and founder Samantha Freeman, using realistic faux flowers and vintage finds. “After the success of the first National Flower Crown Day, last year, we decided we also wanted to honour the day dedicated to one of our most favourite things – the floral crown! Despite the fact that flower crowns are hugely popular today – especially with brides and fashionistas – they’re really not a new idea. The flower halo has been a popular accessory all over the world for centuries; it’s steeped in tradition, and dates back as far as Ancient Greece. Each era has brought with it a new take on floral hair accessories, and I enjoy taking this inspiration and adding a 21st century twist!”
