Yes, this is 'Calypso', a new bridal collection from Hairbowswonderworld's. A while ago while ordering some materials for my brides's bouquets, I came a cross this ivory sinamay and suddenly I felt an urge to buy it. I didn't even know what I were going to make with it but I kept coming back and thought I must have it. That's how I bought it. The mini green trocus I bought few weeks ago, also with the same reason were still sitting on my craft table. And suddenly I thought those will go nicely together, may be for a beach theme. Sinamay roses ? seashell flower? Suddenly I thought of Calypso, the sea nymph who with her charm imprisoned Odyssey in her island for 7 years. Now I've got a name. Yay!!! I started to feel so excited!

Now, the question was, what should I add to those flowers as sparkling elements and something to soften the look of those shells and the sinamay roses? Some crystals, some feathers, what colour should they be? My brain ran fast and fast, and I started to visualise the bouquet in my head. Aqua would be a perfect coordinating colour, aqua in different shades!

I was a hard time waiting for the aquamarine swarovski crystals and the light aqua goose biots I ordered to come. I had no patience and I jumped up everytime the doorbell rang, longing for the lovely postman :-) And they came finally in a perfect condition. And I made this bouquet the same day, adding some more clear crystals for a perfect sparkling look and wrapped the stems with deep aqau satin ribbon.

I was so thrilled as I absolutely loved it, and it came out exactly the same as I viualised it before in my head.
The fact is that I loved it so much I could not stop there. So I made a bridal headband to match

and a boutonniere, too.

I've been abandonned my blog for quite a while, what a shame! After my long holiday in summer, I've been bombarded with orders I hardly found time to sleep - so I haven't even been able to keep up with my monthly giveaaway plan. Anyway, I really want to make it up for my blog readers now with a nice giveaway - a CUSTOM MADE BRIDAL BOUQUET - in my SHABBY ELEGANCE design - a very good seller of mine so far which is priced at $125.00

The main colour of the bouquet will be cream/ natural white, and the spotty feathers will be the same but I can change the peachy feather and the ribbon wrapping around the handle to match your colour scheme. You can convo me on Etsy : to discuss colour possibilities if you want.

Below are some examples of what we can do with this design : gold and peach, black and purple, hot pink. But there are many more colours possible...

I'll need up to 4 weeks since the winner is announced to complete the bouquet
The contest for this giveway will take place any time between now and the 15th November and it will last only 3 days so please check my blog from time to time to make sure you won't miss it out. I will post the date and the rules later :-)
Oh, I almost forget to say, I will give 10% discount in my Etsy shop to everyone entering the contest. Does it sound good?
I'll see you soon :-)
