100th Birthday

15 October 2022

Dot said to me today “I can’t quite believe I am celebrating my 100th Birthday

I am lucky to have so many friends and family to celebrate it with” At this point she did not know what celebrations were in store for her. We decorated our café with balloons, banners, table confetti and flowers ready for the birthday girl’s party. As the lift doors opened to the café, out came our beautiful Dot on her 100th Birthday with her glossy nails, perfect perm, dazzling jewels and the biggest smile you have ever seen. Her family and friends that she has shared her life with were here to celebrate her 100th Birthday. A beautiful rich fruit cake had been specially created for her covered in daisy’s (her favourites) and Bees for her surname Brown. All her favourite tunes were playing, old photos were circling the room, presents and cards were shared and then her grandson toasted to his incredible nan on her 100th Birthday, her smile lit the room. She was blown away by everyone coming to celebrate with her. As lunch time approached, she joined her friends of Amberwood House in the dining room sharing her joy and the details of her party. The fun didn’t stop here though, Nicky Stevens put on a special sing a long concert for all the residents, staff, family, and friends. Laughter and cheer filled the room. We had a great afternoon. We finished off the afternoon with a white iced sponge cake decorated with flowers and a cheerful sing song of Happy Birthday. An emotional Dot thanked everyone for being so kind and making her day so special.
