Roselea House Care Home in Fife hosted a storybook tea party to bring added magic to the residents’ afternoon brew.
The celebrations saw residents and staff bring their favourite literary characters to life, dressing as characters ranging from the Cat in the Hat to the formidable Sherlock Holmes. Residents and their families tucked into a delicious spread, complete with an Alice in Wonderland themed cake baked by chefs at the home.
Staff organised the tea party as part of a weekly activity programme to keep residents happy and healthy. Roselea House, part of the Holmes Care Group, regularly looks for creative opportunities to entertain residents as part of its mission to provide outstanding care and support to the elderly.
Elsie Forbes, resident at Roselea House said: “The tea party was great fun – I’ve always loved fancy dress and enjoy any excuse to get dressed up.”
Ruth Goodman, manager at Roselea House said: “All the residents had a brilliant time at our tea party! The home looked incredible with the decorations, and everyone got into the fantasy spirit.”
