West Kelowna’s Grizzli Winery to launch take-home floral creations workshop

The Workshop teaches the community to build creations such as table centerpieces and vase arrangements

Grizzli Winery and Sweet Elegance Floral Design have teamed up this fall to provide the community with the skills to make their own take-home floral creations, ranging from Thanksgiving table centerpieces and vase arrangements to Holiday wreaths.

Workshops will be held at the elegant Grizzli Winery in West Kelowna and will include all supplies and a glass of wine. $5 from every ticket sold will be donated to the Canadian Mental Health Association- Kelowna.

“The Collectif Concept was borne through our personal desire to continuously grow, challenge ourselves and learn new skills or ideas, all while giving back to our community,” said Grizzli Winery Collectif coordinator Breanna Nathorst.

“Through the ups and downs of our busy lives and everything that has happened in 2020, it is easy to forget the importance of our own mental health. We need reminders to ‘stop and smell the roses’, to appreciate what we have, to wind down, and to focus and nurture our own selves and our community”.
