Here at The Cottages of Carmel we started Valentine’s celebrations early. Our residents helped make heart candy grams which were then sold to benefit our Watermark for Kids fund. On February 8th, Stillwater residents toured Lula’s chocolate factory in Ryan Ranch. We also sampled the candies and did some shopping. Our Inn residents went shopping at Lula’s store in the Crossroads in Carmel for those last minute valentine treats on February 12th.
On Valentine’s Day we were entertained by a Barbershop Quartet who sang love songs that touched our residents hearts. Karvin Domingo, Lead Cook, created a beautiful and tasty chocolate covered strawberry arrangement and mini-white chocolate almond cookie heart grams. The dining room was decorated with everything red and heart centerpieces decorated the tables for the Valentine’s dinner. Residents had a choice of Poached Salmon or Rack of Lamb. Dessert was German Chocolate Cake.
That is the way to celebrate Valentine’s at The Cottages of Carmel!
