Winter solstice celebrations

The residents of Woodcote Retirement Village woke up to a white Christmas on Wednesday 24 June. The dining room was decorated with white balloons and white paper cut-out snowflakes. The Port Hills were covered in snow, not to mention the post card, picture perfect, snowy white Southern Alps in the distance. What a brilliant backdrop and setting for our long awaited mid-winter Christmas feast.

The feast started at 12pm and took on the style of a banquet with white table cloths and serviettes, silver miniature Christmas trees on the tables and ice blue coloured centre pieces.

Hosting the banquet were the beautiful Snow Queens from “The Lion, the Witch and the Wardrobe” and Elsa from the Walt Disney blockbuster “Frozen”. Background music was provided by a pan flute playing soft, gentle Christmas songs, while the Snow Queens filled the glasses with drinks to compliment the meal.
