After being married for 70 years on the 25th of March, Ralph and Doreen are still deeply in love with each other.
And during our Valentine’s Day High Tea, there was lots of love shared around the residence.
With red roses lining the table with silk and lace tablecloths, we were all in the mood for love at Arcare Peregian Springs.
The local Peregian Springs school also visited for the morning tea, presenting their handmade hearts and verses of love to the clients.
The clients all thoroughly enjoyed the big Valentine cake with chocolate and strawberries on it.
In true English fashion, there were delicious cucumber sandwiches available and tea and coffee served in fine bone china.
Then at lunch time, the clients also enjoyed a special Valentine’s Day menu with chocolates and special place mats.
