I had the great pleasure of teaming up with my friend Halle Frey of Flower & Fringe to host a flower crown event at Anthropologie this weekend. It was seriously a perfect morning. We had a great group of ladies learning how to make crowns with us—- and when I say ‘us’, I absolutely mean ‘me’ learning— not Halle. Halle is a wizard with flowers. And I’m a man handling daisy killer— to put it lightly. Precision and grace is not my business— I’m a bit all over the place myself. 
An-y-way— it was a blast. Purple cocktails, lemonade, lavender cookies made by the fine folks of Anthro. Flowers everywhere from Flower &Fringe. Awesome people to meet. And some pretty amazing flower crowns to take home for all of us. 
My friend Alana helped and scared me quite a bit when I would look down and realize my brother’s camera wasn’t in front of me anymore—- thanks for that, A. And Halle, like I said, she’s a flower wizard. Both those girls have been bringing the extra touch of inspiration and creativity I’ve been longing for lately. And in general, like I said before, I feel pretty lucky that I get to spend my days doing awesome things with amazing people. 
Thanks SO MUCH to those who came out to create such a fun morning!

  1. This looks so much fun! I love the use of real flowers, its prettier than those silk flowers + smells good! I'm writing about how to make a flower crown with fake flowers. I wish I could've went especially because I love anthropologie.

  2. I used to work for anthro 🙂 love it there and the atmosphere just inspires creativity! Beautiful crowns!

  3. Looks like it was a GREAT time and you are a fabulous flower crown maker! Is that the Anthro in City Place? If so, that's my favorite Anthro! I go there all the time 🙂

  4. I swear you might me quite jealous with the way you can take such beautiful photos. It almost feels as though I was there, haha. Which I wish I was because this sure does look like fun! Such a beautiful idea too. I wish in small town Sherman that we had nice group gatherings like this for the neighborhood. I may just need to move to FL.
    Let's see if I can convince my husband of it!

  5. I WISH I COULD HAVE GONE! I hope I'll be around South Fl next time you host one of these beautiful things.

    • I have california on the mind. Hoping for another trip this year — this time we will big out and rock out.

  6. 1) Your hair is GORGEOUS. It's grown so fast! 2) I freaking love Anthro. 3)I'm so sad I live so far and couldn't take part in this because it looks so so fun. What a great idea 🙂

    • haha! Thanks! I actually got it cut two days before! I love anthro too 🙂 You'll have to visit 🙂
