It’s not much of a secret that I don’t need an excuse to shop (especially when it comes to pretty things to add to my collection of newborn props and accessories) so when I saw that Lotus Floral Art were having a sale on their dried flower newborn crowns, I was over there like a shot.

So I was very excited when this little brown box arrived in the post and nestled inside, all packed up in wood wool and tissue, was my stunning newborn flower crown.  I love fresh flowers but obviously they don’t last long and so it’s not very practical to use them in many photo shoots.  So these dried flower alternatives are just brilliant.  All the beauty of real flowers and tiny and delicate just like your newborn.
