Flower Fun for Everyone
The Annie Selke Flower Challenge (ends April 22 at noon): “We believe in the power of flowers, and wanted to do something life-affirming for our online community,” says Annie Selke of the flower-arranging challenge recently launched by her eponymous home decor brand.
How to enter:
- On your next outing for essential groceries, add flowers to the shopping list. Then create a beautiful arrangement at home (see our tips).
- Share the bouquet on Instagram using #AnnieSelkeChallenge and tagging @annieselke.
- Spread the joy by tagging a friend.
The prize: $500 gift card to annieselke.com
The details: Annie Selke will choose one winner weekly. There is no limit on the number of entries, and the contest is open to residents of the US and Canada, age 18 and older. The contest ends April 22, 2020, at noon.
The company has also donated fabric to produce masks for healthcare workers and food to local hospitals to support the staff; however, the flower challenge “allows our entire community to brighten the days of people they care about but can’t see,” says Annie. “Our homes are our everything right now, so our mission to Bring Happy Home feels as essential as ever.”
