Did you know that Beija Flor’s team of florists are experts at creating flower crowns and bespoke headpieces, all with fresh flowers. To find out if we can help you put the finishing touch to your race day outfit send us a picture and we’ll suggest some options for you. 

At Beija Flor we’re of the opinion that occasions such as Melbourne Cup Day call for more dramatic floral head wear, we’re thinking… an over the top Frida Kahlo inspired piece in clashing shades. Popular flower varieties include large and showy blooms such as phalenopsis orchids, with their wide petals, garden roses which have a flatter profile than standard roses and cymbidium orchids in all colours. Flower crowns can also be created using delicate blooms such as waxflowers and rose buds, add pops of yellow from daisies or billy buttons for a relaxed a bohemian vibe.

Would you like to know how to make your own flower crowns and headpieces. Drop us a message and we’ll be sure to let you know about our next program of floral workshops. 

Wishing you all a Happy Melbourne Cup Day xo
