After a long, dark winter, things are finally changing; the sun is setting later in the evening, the birds are chirping and the flowers are beginning their bloom. One thing is certain, spring is coming!

Over the past few years, decorating with and wearing dried flowers has become incredibly popular. Come spring, Instagram feeds are flooded with dried flowers being used as decoration, made into jewelry and worn as crowns. Not only are they beautiful, but, with gentle care, they can be enjoyed forever. What’s a better way to celebrate the turn of the season with homemade flower crowns?

On Saturday, March 27th, Westshore Town Centre has partnered with Queen Tina from Platinum Floral Designs, and will be holding an all-ages online workshop to help you create your very own flower crowns.

For only $10, you can register to be a part of the step-by-step workshop over Zoom.

And even better, Westshore Town Centre is gifting one lucky winner a box of Purdy’s Chocolates, a box of tea and a sweet tea cup to enjoy it in while they make their crown – because what better pair than flowers and chocolate? Contest details are below!

Once you register for your flower-crown making kit, you’ll be able to pick it up directly from  Westshore Town Centre between Monday, March 22nd and Friday, March 26th – the kit will include everything you need to create your very own flower crown on the day of the event, from the comfort of your own home.

You can head online to register, and all proceeds from the event will be donated to Westshore Town Centre’s 2021 charity of choice, the Goldstream Food Bank.

Registration closes on March 24th at 5:00 p.m., and spots are limited and will sell out fast, so be sure to reserve your spot early before they are gone!
