My sister turned seventy at the weekend. Celebrations began with a tea party organised by my niece, Paula and her family. This lovely hand made Alice in Wonderland invitation set the scene for the day;
Dear Auntie Barbara and Uncle Terry, you are hereby invited to join us in celebrating Sue's 70th very merry un-birthday, birthday tea party on the 19th May, at 12pm. Lots of love Paula, Dave and Robyn xxx
The table settings, cake stands and pretty silver teaspoons were all sourced from eBay – a task that took several weeks.
Sue the birthday girl and "Alice" for the day
"Eat Me" cupcakes!
"Drink Me" champagne - no need to ask twice!This delightful pansy covered decoration and the Alice in Wonderland one at the end of the post were handmade by Paula.
The birthday cake (on the right) was delicious as well as pretty.
