My fabulous friends surprised me with a Downton Abbey Tea Party for my 60th Birthday. They were all there and waiting patiently for my arrival.
I was totally surprised (shocked even) as the party was a few months after my actual birthday.
People came dressed in costume (as close as they could!) We were seated at beautifully decorated tables.
My friends even made a special blend of tea with my name on it! And a photo of me in profile (glad they removed the double chin!) And used my Bless not Impress tagline as part of the decoration!
One of the most special parts of my birthday was receiving so many warm and meaningful affirmations (my husband even had tears in his eyes when he shared!)
I also received a beautiful runner hand painted by Ruth Korch. She knows how much I love birds and the runner had significant words and phrases around the edge. A personal gift like this is priceless!
When a group of friends come together and use their creative skills, their love and thoughtfulness it truly makes for a very special event. I am so grateful for each person who made this celebration of my milestone birthday so very special.
I hope that these photos are an inspiration for you!
