Last week it was my mother’s 82nd birthday and we celebrated with a family gathering for lunch on Saturday. This is the first time our family has gathered since the lockdown started on 26 March and it was a welcome and delightful day. Everyone had a wonderful time and ate and drank and enjoyed themselves.
We decided on a 1960s themed event and the table was laid with colourful cloth overlays depicting flowers. The paper napkins were also colourful and matched the clothes.
I made a portable record player in a box cake in a flower garden.
