About

Gardens of Whimsy

I am a featured seller by Etsy! Check out my interview on the Etsy blog here: https://blog.etsy.com/en/featured-shop-gardens-of-whimsy/

I created Gardens of Whimsy in 2009 and through the years have handcrafted thousands of timeless hair adornments.
My designs are inspired by the wildness of nature and the aesthetic of bygone eras. I use the finest silk florals and vintage supply to create each piece with care for detail and craftsmanship.
Most of my creations are worn during important occassions, so I put my all into creating pieces that are intricate and long lasting -- that they may even become future heirlooms to pass on if you wish!
Never in my wildest dreams did I think my path would lead me to a life of designing whimsical headpieces for a living! Year after year, I feel so fortunate to have the opportunity to be creative and of course to be surrounded by flowers on a daily basis.

Best wishes,
April Rissell

WEARING YOUR ADORNMENT:

My crowns are made to fit 22" heads, but if you need a different measurement or would like a crown to be split and ribbons added just let me know and I would be happy to accommodate you free of charge!

As for combs, clips, or hair pins please note that these are adornments and work best as an addition to your hair style. They will be much more secure through your day or special event if you pin your hairstyle in place first, then adorn it with your new hair accessories.

CUSTOM ORDERS:

I love doing custom orders! Due to scheduling I only can take on a select number of custom orders each month, but please contact me with any ideas or visions you have!

If I am able to work with you on a custom piece, turn around time is usually 2 weeks.

Please take note that custom orders usually cost more than my set inventory depending upon the amount of time/cost of supply need to create your order.

Frequently asked questions
Care instructions

I spend a great deal of time crafting each item to be as secure and long lasting as possible, so if you treat your adornments delicately they can last for generations and even become heirlooms!

Store them with care as some fabric florals can fade if left for long periods of time in direct sunlight and be sure to hang your veil someplace safe to avoid creasing or snags. I would recommend using a garment bag to protect your veil.

Wholesale availability

If you are interested in placing a wholesale order please contact me for information on pricing, availability, and production time.

Rush Orders

Please reach out to me before making your purchase if you need an item in a hurry!
If I have the time in my schedule to rush production of your order I am happy to do so.
My standard production time is typically 1-2 weeks. If you need an item made and shipped out sooner than that, there is a $15 fee for all crowns, headpieces, and veils. Priority or Express shipping will be required.
