Cooking with Camden - DIY Float Bar
Taken by Danielle Patino
Here at Camden we love to celebrate successes within the company and are passionate about being the best multifamily company by providing Living Excellence to our customers. With that being said, one of our favorite times of the year is Resident Appreciation Day, aka RAD, this is a day solely dedicated to our resident where we shower them with extra love, appreciation and great activities held at the different times of the day.
This year at Camden Post Oak, we hosted a midday event called “Recharge and Renew at our Float Bar” for Resident Appreciation Day. It was a total success and our residents enjoyed our delicious and refreshing floats! Having them watch our team create the floats right in front of them, adding the whip cream and finishing it off with a decorative orange or lime slice was exciting!
We had such an amazing time that I wanted to share these great recipes with you! Not only is this a fun and interactive bar but summer is right around the corner and the next perfect party idea not matter the age.

Vanilla ice cream will be used for the Root beer, Coke and Orange Cream Floats, so make sure you have enough, depending on your RSVP’s. You will want to add 2-3 scoops of ice cream in each jar (depending on size). The slices of oranges will go with the Orange Float and the lime with the Lime Sherbet Floats, these decorative pieces will be just the right touch of style! I am positive these recipes with float your boat!
