The Roaring ’20s at Floréa
The Floréa residence in Terrebonne, which opened its doors on December 1, 2016, celebrated its 5th anniversary on December 16 with a “Gatsby” theme. Inspired by the famous novel “The Great Gatsby” by F. Scott Fitzgerald, the anniversary party paid tribute to the glittering 1920s.
Feathers, sequins and beads to celebrate
In a beautifully decorated Art Deco-style residence, Floréa residents enjoyed an enchanting evening where no detail was left to chance. Even the residence’s Christmas trees were part of the celebration with their delicate champagne glasses sprinkled with gold as decoration.
The evening kicked off with an elegant cocktail party, not in the secretive atmosphere of a speakeasy, but rather surrounded by greenery, on the walkway overlooking the residence’s interior garden. Live music—jazz, of course—was present to allow us to dive headfirst into this intoxicating Golden Era, a symbol of renewal. The Floréa team was delighted to share this celebration with the residents. From flappers in their fringed dresses to gangsters in their fedora hats and vests, the team members orchestrated an evening of fun just like the old days.
During the delicious anniversary dinner, specially prepared by Chef Franck and his crew, residents enjoyed the jazz tunes of the Groovy Little Orchestra. The residents didn’t hesitate to hit the dance floor at the end of the evening to swing like Josephine Baker with some Charleston steps!
“The smiles on the faces of the residents were a testament to how much they enjoyed the evening. It was a pleasure to see them having fun and laughing with all the team members, who worked so hard for this anniversary. I feel blessed to be so well surrounded to lead this wonderful residence and hope that these moments of happiness and fun will continue for many years to come!”
