Early royal wedding celebrations at Tall Trees

April 28th 2011

We held our royal wedding celebrations a day early to make sure   residents were able to watch the wedding without disruptions on the Friday.

Both our lounge areas were decorated in a red, white and blue theme with Kate and William wedding banners and flags and there were special hats for the residents to wear.

On the Thursday we held a lunchtime BBQ, the garden being set up with gazebos, bunting, tables and chairs to give a street party theme.

The following day, residents, who all received hand-made invitations, watched full coverage of the wedding from after breakfast, with radio coverage for those who preferred it.

Afternoon tea included special cakes with sugar paper toppings bearing either the British flag or William and Kate’s faces on them.

 

The team at Tall Trees is passionate about ensuring that it feels like home – both for residents and their loved ones. Residents’ families are encouraged to stay for as long as they like, and join in home life. Residents – many of whom are local – are also supported to continue playing a part in local community life.
