Birthday Celebrations!

It was my birthday yesterday and I had a great day! My friend Matthew worked out how to use the auto pilot on my camera, which I've never done...I decided to get out my Limoges and 'nearly Limoges' for a proper tea party.
Son 1 made herb teas from the garden.
I made cakes and buns and our guests brought more.
Son 2 and Ben made some mega-cakes which deserve a post of their own - hopefully on Wednesday, although it's going to be a hectic week...

Thanks for your birthday greetings on Facebook - that was a lovely surprise!

Oh many happy returns Floss, missed it! looks like you had a wonderful tea party. I have promised myself next year we will go to a place called Fanny's Farm which does tea and cakes in a tree house! There's nothing better than having your family and friends around you Floss, so glad you had a good time. Betty x

I hope you had a wonderful birthday. Too bad about the weather, having to celebrate indoors instead of out. I'm cautiously optimistic that summer weather will soon arrive in our neck of the woods, and in yours, too.

Your table looked beautiful.
I thought the first picture of you all at the table was taken at a restaurant then I realized it was your home. Oh my goodness. How pretty.

Happy Birthday Floss.
