A childhood friend agreed to be my guinea pig and commissioned a holiday fascinator, my first ever! Janet gave me complete freedom in the colours, design, etc so I chose to use rich warm colours and textures that hopefully say Holiday without being too literal!
I used lavender and heather dried from my mom’s garden, dried red mini roses I snipped from my apartment rose, and dried white and pink dried roses from my mom’s garden in Robert’s Creek. I accented with a bit of navy veiling and gold and mossy green velvet millinery leaves, all attached to a navy sinamay base! It’s nearly complete and I think it turned out pretty well for my first try!
