LITTLE TABLESCAPING FOR MUMS 88TH BIRTHDAY!!~~



Hi ladies....well dad turns 87 yo this friday (15th october) along with someone else!!

well I turn 53 yo NOT 87!!! ......(yep my gorgeous dad & I share the same birthday)..

But my mum has her birthday on 2nd November & is turning 88 yo...

I gave her a lovely English afternoon tea party for her 80th birthday and I am planning a similar type event for her upcoming 88th...~~~~

I cooked for days & days with lots of petit fours...lamingtons..sponge cakes...etc etc..

It was a lovely afternoon but sadly a few of mum's good friends have since passed away...

SOO I want to make this an extra LOVELY birthday for my mum (who i must say looks about 60 yo!!)..

anyway...just starting to look at some ideas...
lavender/rosemary/lace....

vintage plates...roses etc...

some inspirational pages from magazines ....

just a little snippet of what i have been doing this BEAUTIFUL SPRING DAY in Melbourne...!!~~~~~

have a lovely week..

xx andrea
