Floral Fancy

Rather than the traditional bunch of flowers this Mothering Sunday, why not treat your mum to a flower crown kit instead? As something you can do together, this is the perfect activity for beginners looking to create their very own floral crown. The kit contains beautiful dried spring meadow flowers and instructions for an easy-to-assemble crown at home. We suggest wearing yours while sipping a delicious G&T with your mum in the garden.
