My Dad's 80th Birthday Party
My dear Dad was 80 years old on the 19th January and my older brother and his wife hosted a party for him in their lovely home in Buckinghamshire. All the family were there and it was just the nicest day you could imagine. I must thank my sweet sister-in-law Julie for all the work it took to organise it so well.
|A real family gathering|
The spread was amazing, to which my personal contribution was the cupcakes and the birthday cake; the famous Rainbow Cake. I was so pleased with the outcome and glad I decided to splash out on the Wilton gel colourings to get the beautiful, vivid effect inside. Admired by all and it didn't half taste good too, even if I do say so myself!!!
|HAPPY BIRTHDAY DAD!|
I have pledged a Monthly Make for 2012
I signed up for this at Annie, the Felt Fairy's blog at the beginning of the year and, apart from the layouts above and the baking I have done, I found the time to make this dear little felt owl which was from a free template at Bugs and Fishes by Lupin blog I loved making it but feel he needs a friend or two now to keep him company!
Thanks for looking.
