I was so excited when Belle Blossoms contacted me to review their hair flowers. I have heard other bloggers rave about them but never had the pleasure of seeing them in person. To be honest, until this point I thought all hair flowers were created equal. I didn't know what could make one hair flower stand out above others. I had bought them from a lot of other companies (who shall remain nameless) and made them myself. Well, my opinion on hair flowers completely changed when I got my package from Belle Blossoms. Firstly, everything was individually wrapped in beautiful printed tissue paper. Next I noticed how cute the little postcard it was attached to was.
When I went to remove the clip I saw that the metal portion of the clip was covered in a green leaf. ‘Nice touch Belle Blossom’, I thought. Still hesitant, I removed the clip from the cardboard, looked down and POW! This is the exact moment it happened. My hair flower clip world was forever changed. Are you ready…..
The inside of the clip had the Belle Blossom logo on it. How stinkin’ cute is that detail? I am a nut for details. This is why up until this point I thought my homemade hair flowers were fancy - because I put felt or left over greenery inside the clip. But I don’t have my name on it! Does anyone else? If so, I haven’t seen it. Okay Belle Blossoms, you win! I admit defeat.
From that moment on I loved them. I opened all the pretty little individually wrapped flowers with glee. By this point I already knew they were well made, which is a must for me. But then I started to notice how beautiful they were as well. They were all so unique, colorful, and with fun greenery added. They also smelled nice. Not in the way of “I added a ton of grandma perfume, look how fancy I am” way like others do it. They smelled subtly fresh and clean, nothing that would interfere with your regular scents.
The icing on the cake was the snood. Yes, not only do Belle Blossoms do hair flowers, but they also do fascinators, bows, and snoods. The snood was a beautiful yellow color that I did not own and that will go with a lot in my wardrobe (hellllooooo matching Bakelite). Better yet, the snood came with Original Grip-Tuths. How come I did not know about these? Apparently I was the last to know about how amazing these are. Thank you so much Belle Blossoms for bringing us together!
I couldn’t wait for this post to wear them so I have actually been wearing them for a few weeks now. I had to test them after all! Did you notice them in a lot of my Outfit Of The Day posts? Because a lot of the flowers have a color gradient effect I am able to match them to a lot of things. My favorite turned out to be the cherry clip, which didn’t surprise me. It just screams summer to me! You will see the snood make an appearance in the coming weeks as well, maybe in a 1940’s themed Outfit Of The Day post. If I had to come up with a negative aspect for this review, I would say it is that my cherry clip lost one of the little yellow centers. This was after I wore it a few times and it was from a flower on the edge that was in a position that makes it not noticeable. This happens all the time with the hair flowers I make, so I just glue them back on. No big deal to me, so in my opinion it is definitely not a deterrent. Thank you so much to Belle Blossoms for expanding my hair horizons beyond scarf’s and teaching me how to love hair flowers again.
