The aroma of fresh tea, coffee and treats wafted through the air, making everyone’s mouths water with anticipation.

The Event

As the residents and their families arrived to our coronation party, the atmosphere was electric. Everyone was dressed in their best clothes, ready to celebrate the occasion. People were dressed in red, white and blue, with some even dressed particularly smart for the big occasion.

The coronation party kicked off with some traditional British music, which got everyone tapping their feet and singing along. After some music, it was time for the buffet. The staff had gone all out to ensure that there was something for everyone, and they had certainly succeeded. The sandwiches were fresh and tasty, the sausage rolls were hot and crispy, and the cakes were sweet and moist. There were also plenty of drinks to choose from, including tea, coffee, and soft drinks.

The residents and their families sat around the table, chatting and laughing as they enjoyed the delicious food. There were lots of stories being shared, memories being recalled, and new friendships being formed. It was beautiful to watch residents and their families chat and bond with each other on such a special afternoon.

As the coronation party continued, the music got louder, and then the dancing began. The staff had arranged a few games, which everyone enjoyed playing. There was a quiz about the Royal family, a game of bingo, as well as a game of charades. The residents and their families threw themselves into the games, laughing and joking as they competed against each other.

The highlight of the food was undoubtedly the coronation cake. The staff had baked a stunning cake, decorated with the British flag and a crown. It was a masterpiece, and everyone was eager to get a slice. The cake was cut, and the staff distributed the slices amongst the guests. The cake was sweet, moist, and delicious. This was the perfect way to cap off a wonderful coronation party.
