Fascinators, corsages, wedding bouquets, circlets, brooches, in sumptuous, silks, chiffons and velvets. Unseasonal flowers that can be kept forever.
Having worked many years in the floristry industry I have often been asked to include flowers that are unseasonal, such as peonies and lily of the valley. When many flowers only last the day at their optimum, and are expensive, also some flowers do not have a very good shelf life. Poppies for example can wilt as soon as they are cut but if you were having a harvest theme, they could be included. The flowers can be then retained and recycled. In this age of recycling I have obtained many hats and made a few that can be given a new lease of life and themed to your colour palette.
