Dubai: A unique edible chocolate room is showcased as part of the first Home and Garden Festival hosted by the Dubai Festival City Mall which will run until May 3.

The chocolate room is especially crafted for the occasion by celebrated international artist Sid Chidiac.

“We are very delighted that many of our key retailers at Dubai Festival City Mall are joining us to make the first Home and Garden Festival a major success. In addition to having international artists showcasing exquisite room set designs by using the latest global trends in home furnishings and accessories, we are also introducing a room made entirely out of chocolate,” said Murray Bell, Managing Director, Retail, Dubai Festival City Mall.

A bespoke ‘Home Trend Guide’ from Dubai Festival City Mall offers design enthusiasts advice by experts to help create highly efficient and exquisitely designed rooms and kitchens. Gardening lovers are also provided a host of tips by acclaimed horticulturist and gardening expert Jemuel del Rosario.

The guide also features many exclusive offers from selected retailers that are valid until May 17.

Shoppers who spend over Dh150 at any Dubai Festival City Mall store will enter into a draw for a chance to win one of two home make-overs worth up to Dh200,000. Those who shop at home, garden and electronics stores will double their chances of winning.

The mall also introduced a competition on Instagram for gardening enthusiasts, inviting them to post a picture of their unique and outdoor settings.

This festival is not only for the adults but also for our little ones to join in daily Arts and Crafts available in the Toys R Us Court. Children will have the opportunity to design flowers resulting in a beautiful garden that will come to life during the course of the event.
