You are invited to my Garden Party!

This is an updated post, which is linked to the invitations to my real garden party on June 27th, for my local friends. However, in case my friends who can read English would like to visit some of the other virtual parties which other bloggers held in my honour, please click here!
This is what happened:

The idea is that, on the weekend of 20th-21st June, all the 'guests' who've accepted my invitation do a post on their blog, with lots of lovely garden party images.
You might want to include a photo of your dream garden party dress...
or a hat you would wear:
or bunting for the garden:
or some Pimms recipes or other garden party delights!
I leave it up to your imagination, and will find a little French vintage prize for the most entertaining post!

Practical details: please leave a comment on this post if you would like to 'come to my party', and I will list everyone taking part, with links, on the weekend of my birthday, so everyone can check out the other guests' posts!

Please right click on my party invitiation (above) and save it for use on your own blog - in the sidebar with a link to this post, or in your own garden party post.

Anyone can join in - you don't have to have been commenting on my blog beforehand, as it's great to meet new people!

So, please come to my Garden Party, June 20th or 21st!

P.S. Thanks very much to Sonia for the lovely artwork for my invitation.

I'd LOVE to join in - HAPPY BIRTHDAY, FLOSS! =) It is a busy weekend for us... the end of schoolyear is the 23rd, and we have a little graduation party to attend, but if I plan ahead, I should be able to have a post ready. =)
