Mary Mackillop facility had the privilege of hosting Angie from Butterflies Florist in Camden, who came in to demonstrate tea cup flower arranging for our residents. Angie is lucky enough to have an abundance of cups donated to her from members of the local community, and so she was excited to demonstrate this new activity to our residents.
The residents had the opportunity to show off their creativity and have a sensory experience through the touch and the delicate smell of the flowers. At the end of the activity, Angie presented each resident with a gift card and an envelope; they could choose to keep their arrangement or give it to somebody as a gift. One of the participating residents decided to gift her beautiful arrangement to another resident who was not able to make it to the activity on that day in the hope that it would brighten up their day.
What a lovely gesture! A big thank you to Angie from Butterflies Florist in Camden for coming out to spend time with our residents, we are looking forward to having her back with us again very soon.
