LOVE IS IN THE AIR

Our flower arranging project this week focused on Valentine’s Day.
We arranged red and white carnations with baby’s breath and greens and then added a valentine pick to finish it off. Homemade Valentines graced our tables at lunch time and a special brownie heart dessert was served after our meal. Valentine cards have been coming in at a steady rate. The elevator has also been decorated for this month of love.
We must not forget the birthdays of two of our presidents this month as well. Happy Birthday to Abraham Lincoln and George Washington.
Remember when they weren’t combined to President’s Day?
