Halloween Fairies…

I received a call at the studio on Friday at 5 pm from a woman asking if we could make 2 floral crowns for her daughters by 1 pm Saturday.  They were going to be fairies for Halloween.  Now, floral crowns can be quite labor intensive as you have to wire each individual flower in order to weave it into a crown.  The studio closes at 6 pm.  And every Saturday I must complete 24+ very large arrangements for our weekly accounts + handle any walk-in customers/phone orders + manage retail sales of home accessories.  I nearly collapsed at the thought of 2 floral crowns.  But the woman sounded desperate and was open to any floral idea for dressing up her kids’ hair.  After discussing options with another designer, I decided to take on the challenge.

On my way home from work I picked up some inexpensive mums from another shop (since we weren’t going to the flower market in the morning).  I also purchased some inexpensive plastic head bands.  In the morning I wrapped each headband in ribbon:

And then set about decorating the headbands with flowers:

And voila!
