In one of last weeks post I told you that my mother had a big birthday at the end of September. Friends and family pitched in to make it special.
Invitations were stencilled and delivered.
Rooms were decorated
balloons were inflated
and hung along the front of the house
cakes were baked, sandwiches were filled, champagne was poured
calendulas floated in cake stands
and in bowls in the garden
a garden parasol was stencilled with Japanese Birds and Blossom
and tents were assembled
photographs were taken
and the birthday girl had a lovely day.
Thank you to all who celebrated with us.
And Happy Birthday to all of you having a birthday today and Happy Thursday to those who are not.
