I know for some people, they see a floral halo and swoon. It's love at first sight. For others they think they are pretty... for someone else. I used to align with the group that held floral crowns on the fence. Thinking these symbolized wild, hippie, earthy chicks and not a modern, city girl such as myself. It is amazing how perceptions can change.
Floral crowns have been around since ancient Greece. Worn for vanity or to honor the gods or recognize great achievements in individuals their use was widespread. They have been a symbol of love, fertility and celebration for hundreds of years around the world. Though, at some point during the dark ages, they fell out of mainstream favor due to cultural beliefs. They revitalized on a global scale in the late 1960s when flower crowns became a staple accessory for hippies, peace, and love. This reemergence of floral crowns heavily influenced mainstream fashion and sparked their re-birth of growing popularity. It seems fitting that something so lovely and delicate would emerge from Greece and modernize itself into pop culture.
The best thing about floral crowns- they are gorgeous and provide a timeless elegance like no other. They can be simple, they can be dramatic, they don't fit in with just one personality or one style. That's the coolest part. I used to think that it was purely peace, love and weeds, not elegance that made a halo. I have learned that floral halos transcend fashion lines because they fit so easily into different categories. They mold into whatever you want them to be using an amazing combination of beautiful flowers to achieve such an effortless look. So, if you are seeking a way to really make a statement consider a floral halo, give your guests something else to swoon about. Enjoy being Queen for a day.
