Rockin around the Christmas Tree Dress

This year, forget Santa… lifestyle coordinator, Delia has delivered a true Christmas gift to the Arcare Nirvana community.

In mid-December, Delia organised a truly spectacular Christmas celebration for Nirvana residents to enjoy. After transforming one of the community’s lounge rooms into a Christmas escape, residents were invited to come together to celebrate the end of the year that was 2020.

Team members and residents were encouraged to come along to the occasion dressed in Christmas colours: red and green. Residents were treated to a glass of champagne upon arrival, and were seated ahead of Delia’s surprise performance.

As a surprise for the community, Delia had spent many weeks working on fashioning a beautiful, festive, light-up Christmas tree dress for the spectacular Christmas event. Residents and team members alike, couldn’t believe their eyes as Delia stepped out in the extravagant gown. Delia received many compliments for her creativity, and many residents enjoyed inspecting the gown up close and personal during the party.

Lifestyle Coordinator at Arcare Nirvana by day and performer extraordinaire by night, Delia knew that there was no better way to ring out 2020 than with a song. Rewriting the words to Christmas classic, 12 Days of Christmas, Delia chose to give the song a 2020 twist. See her full performance below.
