Floral Wreaths, Crowns and Dreaming of Your One True Love

Swedes typically pick their wreath and crown flowers the night before their celebration. They either create their wreath and crowns the night before or first thing in the morning. Some of these picked flowers – seven, to be precise – are needed the night before for a special tradition. That is, you place seven single flowers under your pillow to dream of your one true love.
