Last weekend my husband and I attended a South Pacific themed event for Family Centers, a wonderful non-profit here in our town. I planned on wearing a simple dress and wanted to use flowers or jewelry to make my outfit feel more festive. With the theme being Bali Ha’i I had my heart set on a floral crown. I don’t have a green thumb and have been known to kill a perfectly healthy orchid within days of bringing it home – but I decided to get crafty and bought everything I needed from the great little market in Cos Cob right near the car wash on the Post Road. I won’t lie – the making of the crown took about an hour and 45 minutes. It got rave reviews at the party though so all in all it was totally worth the time. This certainly won’t be the last time I accessorize with flowers!
