My bestfriend got engaged Fall last year, and we have been preparing for her wedding since then...
Wedding Date: August 8th
Wedding Place: Hilo, Big Island/Hawai'i
Everything was all set and ready, then the news came reporting there were two hurricanes bound for Hawai'i. First was Hurricane Iselle, which was scheduled to hit Hilo the hardest on Thursday, August 7th. Iselle invited Hurricane Julio to come right after. While we're bracing for Iselle, we also had an earthquake and hydrogen sulfide release at the geothermal plant in the island. Not to mention, flights were being cancelled to and from the island. Our guests cancellations kept growing.
My co-workers and friends thought we're crazy for heading to Hilo for the wedding. I guess it really was crazy, but the funny thing was not going didn't even crossed my mind.
Since my daughter isn't exactly a little girl anymore, I was having a hard time looking for a flower girl hair wreath that fits her. The ones stores carry are mostly for toddlers and only comes in white or ivory. I'm looking for blush color. That's when I decided to just make it.
I made a trip to Flora Dec to buy blush ribbon for our tea party favors and saw these flowers on sale. I wasn't sure the color was going to match Kaylee's dress but oh well, I'll take the risk for $6.
First I just attached the 6 strands together, but it seemed so bulky and heavy. So I detached the flowers and leaves from the bunch and twisted them in a single strand. It worked!
Aloha! I'm Danielle, your typical married, working mom who loves to do home DIYs, cooking, and other outdoor activities, and I have to squeeze it all in the weekends!
