1920’s Charleston Ball

“I’m with the mob. That means playing by my rules!”

It was a step back in time to a bygone era of three-piece zoot suits, fedora hats and fascinators for our recently held ‘1920’s Charleston Ball’.

The party extravaganza was for residents, their family members and staff to enjoy. Most of whom got into the swing of things and dressed up in gangster costume.

The Ball brought to life the fashion, style, interaction and classic entertainment from the Gatsby Charleston 1920’s gangster period. Staff had fun and went to great efforts dressing up for the event looking slick and classy. The ladies wore silhouettes, gloves, flapper dressing and matching headpieces, all looking glamorous! The men looked sharp in their suites, hats and ties.

Entertainment for the night included the very talented singer Wayne Rogers (previously a runner up on Australia’s Got Talent). His sweet songs got everyone singing along and enjoying the night.

Staff converted the living area of the home into a concert hall. They made and brought themed black and white decorations to suit the event.

Like any good party, there was plenty of great food, wine and cold beers to go around. After all, gangsters love to eat! The food was prepared by Lisa the chef and the catering team.

Several families said that their mothers had not attended any event for many years and they were blown away by the amount of interaction and fun they had on the night.
