Bridesmaid Flower Crown Workshop in Maleny
We believe that great friendships are not only worth treasuring but are worth celebrating. There is so much more to a wedding than the day itself, including the huge way that your nearest & dearest contribute to your celebration and are part of the journey in the lead up to your big day.
It is for this reason that we found ourselves, on a misty Saturday in February, at one of the most stunning spots in the hills of Montville on the Sunshine Coast – to create an inspiration shoot that celebrates friendships and shows how you can treasure your besties as part of your wedding celebrations! We adored bringing this shoot together, providing a lavish afternoon of pampering and fun for an amazing group of friends, so an excited bride-to-be could ask “will you be my bridesmaid?“.
Montville Lake Terrace was the perfect setting to celebrate friendship and spoil a few lucky ladies!
The scene was brilliantly set thanks to a gorgeous suite of hand-written paper goods from The Ink Refinery. The invitations signed off with “I love spoiling my tribe”, which was the perfect sentiment for the day ahead!
The girls arrived and were surprised by a flower crown workshop with an overflowing “bloom bar” (they all adored the incredible marble sign from The Ink Refinery) and a lovely wrapped bunch of flowers to play with. Under the friendly & fun direction of Flour & Bloom, the girls were quickly enraptured in creating their flower crowns. Silk ribbons from Feathers & Stone were the perfect finishing touch to each crown.
Creating something from scratch has such a special feeling. Seeing their flowers crowns come to life through their own design was one of the girls’ favourite elements of flower crown workshop. The other was being spoiled by an opulent bar cart from Kolo The Wanderlust Effect, full of special touches and delicious drinks!
We’ve always found that it’s the personal touches that can elevate an event beyond the ordinary to the truly memorable. This spectacular afternoon was full of lavish details, spoiling the bridesmaids-to-be with silk robes, little macaron boxes, and hand-lettered placecards. Not to mention the dessert table, overflowing with incredible treats from One Last Bite & cakes from Hansel & Gretel Speciality Cakes! Styling the dessert table was a dream come true – it is not often that you get to work with such gorgeous desserts, amazing silks and beautiful flowers in such a stunning location!! Bringing it all together to create this opulent display is exactly why we love what we do.
Brimming with pride at their own creations, the girls were full of excitement and energy. Their happiness bubbled through the rest of the afternoon – there were plenty of smiles and giggles as they enjoyed drinks and a styled picnic together!
The décor was inspired by the amazing hillside house – Montville Lake Terrace. The beautiful property exuded a ‘modern vintage’ feel, which was perfectly complemented by a gorgeous porch swing. Using pastels, some luxury and a few vintage touches, we created a comfy picnic retreat for the girls to enjoy.
We love creating our signature styled picnics – they are such a cosy, relaxed & intimate way to spend time with loved ones. The pastel-themed picnic we created for these special ladies was the perfect backdrop for these girls to eat, drink, & celebrate their friendship.
Any event can be a celebration with the right people, but the addition of a few carefully chosen elements like the dessert bar and the flower crown session made the girls feel like rock stars. A little luxury never goes astray!
If all of the special touches weren’t enough, the girls certainly knew how to make the most of their afternoon! I mean, why wouldn’t you get a bit ‘gangster’ while wearing a flower crown?! This is what besties are for 🙂
Let us know what you cherish & what you wish to share with your besties, and we can take care of the details!
