RESIDENTS at a Solihull care home enjoyed French food and music to mark Bastille Day.

Blossomfield Grange, on Worcester Way hosted a French themed garden party complete with cheese, wine and French music to celebrate July 14 which sparked the French Revolution in 1789 and today represents the unity of the French people.

The home’s talented Head Chef organised pastries and coffee in the home’s bistro, before later preparing a French themed lunch which included a selection of cheeses, olives, salad, grapes, and wine.

The resident’s enjoyed the special lunch sitting in the home’s garden which had been adorned with French flags.

For resident, Barbara, who lived in France, the event provided the perfect opportunity to reminisce about her time spent in the country.

Anne Gaffney, general manager at Blossomfield Grange, said: “Setting sail to the garden, we really made the most of the recent sunshine with our fantastic garden party.

“Our French-themed event created the perfect setting to encourage residents to reminisce – it was fantastic to hear their stories about their favourite family holidays spent travelling around the world.

“Our decorations, costumes and food certainly made the experience even more immersive; the team really did a fantastic job bringing the South of France to Solihull.”
