Kabloem Look Book and Giveaway [Closed]!

Two years ago, I opened an Etsy shop. I had been making flower crowns and other hair accessories for four years and in the Spring of 2013, I finally decided to start selling them. I had no idea how much work would go into owning and running an Etsy shop, but it was a wonderful learning experience and I absolutely loved it.

Because I'm studying abroad, my shop Kabloem is on a long hiatus. However, I still love making floral hair accessories and sharing them with other people. For that reason, today I'm sharing my Kabloem collection with you and hosting a giveaway of one of my handmade flower crowns!

Read on to see the full flower crown collection, and to read the giveaway rules at the end!

  • I adore these! Love the names, the styles, and the fact that there are designs for each season! I think my favorite is Emma…not only because Emma is my favorite Jane Austen character, but because it will match my bridesmaid dress for a very casual summer wedding I will be in–plus it can double for the Ren Faire or just for fun 🙂

  • It’s so hard to choose a favorite from your stuff! Right now I’m leaning towards the Emma or the Audrey in yellow/gold. I have been planning to wear a flower crown to graduation (did you know Wellesley’s graduation caps cost ~$35?!) so having one in my class color would be ideal. Hope your time abroad is going well 🙂

  • Sara, these are all so beautiful. My two favorites are Elinor and Hermione. I’d like to wear one of your creations on my wedding day, which admittedly won’t be for a couple of years. But I think something like your Elinor, perhaps in a very pale blue, would stand out against my red hair, and could be my ‘something blue’ besides!

  • Awh, I love love love these! The Emma and the Bianca are beautiful! I love the white flowers and the summery spring look! I am brunette and I think the white flowers would stand out really well with maybe some blush pink flowers as well!

  • You are beyond talented! These are absolutely amazing! I really love the Audrey one, although Ophelia is a super close second! While I don’t have a special event in the near future, I would love to win for casual wearing around this summer! My style tends to be described as free spirited with a ton of crochet, lace, and flowy materials! Flower crowns fit in perfectly and I can already imagine a dozen outfits to wear one with!

  • The Emma spring crown is breathtaking. I also love the Juliet. I would love to wear either crown in pictures I take while vacationing in Waikiki, Hawaii over the summer! After my trip, I would be so lucky to have one of your creations as a staple to my summer wardrobe 🙂

  • My favorite crown is the Hermione crown because I LOVE Harry Potter. All of them are so gorgeous, though! If I win a crown, I’d wear it on days when I’m feeling blah so I can cheer myself up.

  • Hey Sara! I love all your designs but I am in LOVE with your Hermione crown! (I know she’s a Shakespeare character, but I am also a HUGE Harry Potter fan!) I don’t have a huge event to wear it to (that I know of right now) but I know that if I win it I would wear it all the time on campus! The reds and oranges are just gorgeous and I can already think of a few outfits I could wear it with. Summer is the best time of the year to bust out flower crowns so I would wear it during the summer as well. It also just looks like such a great confidence booster! Who doesn’t look cute in a flower crown?! (The answer: no one!) 😀

  • I love the Rapunzel crown!! They are all so pretty!! I love seeing those floral crowns in bridal photos!! (Possible biz opp for your :-D) Good luck with your Etsy and thanks for hosting the giveaway!! 😀

  • These crowns are all uniquely beautiful. I think the Bianca design is my favorite for its simplicity and understated beauty, but I have to give you props for the Rapunzel. That design is crazy sick. I’m actually not hoping to win the crown for myself, but for my niece. We’ve been best buds since she was born and when she was four I moved to Kenya to be a missionary. I haven’t seen her for almost two years now, but I try to send her “princess” gifts every now and then to let her know I still love and miss her very much. This crown would be the perfect princess gift and I know she would wear it every day, no big event needed. She’s a princess every day, of course!
