Yesterday I went to pretty much my dream event - the blogger preview of Crown and Glory's bespoke flower crown pop-up shop! I've been pretty vocal about my love of G&G's products before and as a headdress maker myself I was very excited when I saw that #BlogClub had organised an event.
Upon arrival we were greeted with cherries in champagne and cupcakes by the lovely Sophie and Gareth who run Crown and Glory. Lily and I had the first slot making and our initial job was to choose our flowers and foliage from a wide selection of jars on the adorable C&G cart. One of my favourite flower crowns was lost at Secret Garden Party last year so I wanted something to wear this summer; I decided on some big flowers in bright pinks and purples with smaller neon green buds as an accent.
After picking my flowers Sophie then laid them out on a tray and we had a crown consultation to see which placement of flowers and shape of headpiece I preferred... then I got to relax whilst Sophie got to work putting it all together for me!
You can see the whole process below as well as some of the other bloggers' creations. Crown and Glory's bespoke flower crown pop-up shop will be open on the ground floor of House of Fraser in Cabot Circus all weekend.
