This past June I was asked by my cousin, Becky, to make a hairpiece for her daughter's grade eight graduation. Becky is one of the most enthusiastic floral lovers I know & has been a huge encourager for me over the years. I was really excited to make something special for her. Becky's daughter, Kendall, is a very important part of our family & they spend their summers just a few doors down the lake from us. I remember the excitement we all felt the summer Kendall was born & it has been a joy to watch her grow up into the beauty she is.
In Canada your grade eight grade is a big deal & it's a fun time to determine your own style. Most girls wear a traditional corsage but Becky wanted some more unique for Kendall. We decided on what we wanted to do the week of the graduation so I had to create with what I had on hand which is always a fun challenge. Becky told me that Kendall's dress was blush with pearl & ivory accents. I used spray roses, peach hypericum berry, wax flower & lots of glitz on a comb for her to wear in her braid. I really wanted it to be feminine & classy but also whimsical & young.
I think it was a great fit for Kendall's personality & she looked so beautiful in it. As I often say, it's so rewarding to make something for the people you love & I really enjoyed this one.
