Flower Crown Background:
Mother Nature gifts us with beautiful blooms which heal our souls and are the reproductive organs of LIFE! Flowers have an essence which can speak when there are no words. They can bless any space with their beauty, so no wonder they are at the core of celebrations and ceremonies. Tracing back to ancient civilisations, Flower Crowns have been worn on special occasions to symbolise gods and goddesses, status, victory, love, fertility, feminism, peace and nature connection.
In ancient Greece crowns were worn to honor the gods, symbolise status and olive wreaths were rewarded to Olympic victors. Crowns made of oak, laurel, myrtle and grass were worn by military Romans.
The Floralia Festival in Rome honored Flora the goddess of flowers, spring and vegetation. The celebrations included singing, dancing, playing games and feasts. People would decorate everything with flowers and wear flower crowns on their head.
In the Victorian Era floriography (the language of flowers) gave flowers certain meanings and people would use them as messages. Flower crowns became popular wedding accessories inspired by Queen Victoria who wore an orange blossom crown in her wedding to Prince Albert in 1840.
The flower children of the 60’s wore flower crowns to symbolize peace, love and connection to nature and were seen as a fashion statement.
Artists like Frida Kahlo used flowers to symbolize female empowerment.
Today flowers are the core to many celebrations and flower crowns are still worn at weddings, festivals and in fashion. I strongly believe flowers have this magical power to bless anyone who lays eyes on them and to lighten a space in an instance. This is why I’d love to share with people my knowledge of creating flower crowns so you can connect back to your creativity, connect back to nature and connect back to your roots of wearing a flower crown you made at your special celebration.
