Today is the second part of three in the embellishment series. Embellishments are put on hats to give them style and character. There is no standard on embellishments; have fun and mix it up when ordering your hat. It's supposed to be an expression and an extension of who you are! This week's embellishment that we will talk about are millinery flowers.

Millinery flowers come in a variety of colors, styles, sizes and materials. Colors can include white, ivory, light grey, brown, yellow, peach, red, raspberry, pink, blush, plum, lime, aqua, light blue, royal blue, navy, and black. Flowers can come in roses, goose feather flowers, leaves, hibiscus, berry clusters, ranunculus, orchids, peonies, and a variety of other beautiful flowers. These flowers can be made from paper, silk, organza, velvet, feathers, and beads. Millinery flowers can compliment your hat, matching it in the best of ways. You could try using one big flower, or a bunch of small ones.
In the end, the choice is yours. Just have fun creating your custom hat.
