Love is in the Air at Oaken Holt

At Oaken Holt nursing home in Farmoor, love was certainly in the air when our residents and team celebrated Valentines Day here at our home.

We started off the celebrations when our ladies from our ‘Knit and Natter’ group made pompoms that were turned into Love Bugs to sit on the tables in our dining rooms.

Candice and Vi, our Hospitality Supervisors, made beautiful roses out of napkins for the Oaken Holt main dining room tables which we then decorated with chocolate love hearts and the love bugs.

For our Nursing Unit, our art class decorated the tables with their own Valentine’s Day theme. As the last finishing touch we added roses which were placed on the tables with chocolate hearts.

In the Coach House we put a beautiful arrangement in the centre of the table with and decorated the table with chocolate love hearts and a red heart helium balloon.

We all then sat down to enjoy a delicious Valentines inspired lunch lovingly prepared by our Chefs and catering team which was finished off by the most mouth watering heart shaped desserts. Well you can say we definitely ‘love’ our food here at Oaken Holt!

That’s not all – to top it all off, in the main foyer and Bistro (which of course was decorated with more red roses and helium red heart balloons) we all gathered together to enjoy a glass (or two) of Bucks Fizz.

All in all it was a lovely day and enjoyed by all our residents, guests and team.
