Making DIY fascinators at Arcare Maroochydore

After much excitement and chatter, a couple of ladies from Arcare Maroochydore settled into the activities room to make fascinators for the upcoming Melbourne Cup.

“It is my favourite day of the year!” one client exclaimed.

As they discussed their fashion choices for the big day, everyone got really excited about coordinating their outfit colours.

They also had the opportunity to work together on creating their own Melbourne Cup fascinators.

Their head pieces were covered in all sorts of delicate materials such as lace, ribbon, bright feathers, flowers and sequins.

It was a great collaborative activity as the ladies helped each other out and ensured everyone had a go with the different materials.

In the end, you could just see that there were some magnificent fascinators coming together.

After their craft activity making DIY fascinators, the lifestyle team at Arcare Maroochydore decided to go through their plan for the Melbourne Cup.

The clients listened very intently with concentrated looks on their faces.

The upcoming activities included door prizes, ladies and gents’ best dressed prizes and a sweep in the Melbourne Cup.

Now the clients could not wait to put their fascinators on and enjoy the racing festivities.
