Vintage brooches and jewellery can be taken apart and re_designed and worked into a unique hair flower design to match your theme and outfit. Look for small vintage Marcasite clip earrings as these can add depth to the design and surround these with silk or lace and you have a unique yet very cost effective bridal hair flower. Wax flowers are going to be making a statement in 2013 we think. Vintage wax flowers are not always easy to come by but can be a really quirky alternative to your usual bridal headdress ideas.
Designers of contemporary collections often combine flowers with fruits to make their arrangements good enough to eat, an abundance of fragrant sweet peas displayed in a vase full of strawberries give a terrific look to any summer dinner party. Slices of limes and lemons work wonderfully with white roses to give a clean crisp effect. Miniature trees, stripped of their leaves and replaced by single heads of pastel shades of asters provide an interesting focal point for a large room.
