Hello! Wow. Time has a funny way of escaping you when you’re off doing fun things like travelling the continent. Nonetheless I’m back and have a month’s worth of updates that I’ll split up accordingly to make it look like I’m still doing interesting things for as long as possible.
Now let’s rewind to a few weeks ago and the ultimate 30th Birthday hog roast party that was held for Tom on a (mainly) sunny June afternoon. Between us the planning for this had been ongoing for months; oh so many months and I’m incredibly happy that it all paid off. The preparation in the days that lead up to the party was somewhat testing and as a result my throat promptly stopped working in some kind of act of revenge against me and my decision to make myself cater for too many people in too little kitchen. I had every intention to vlog along the way but this got lost somewhere between 3kg of couscous disaster and the two tier two flavour Birthday cake. Never mind. Once the set up had been complete (with minutes to spare no less) a flurry of guests and glasses of Prosecco meant that time well and truly flew by as is so often the way with such anticipated events. After having a week of glorious weather of course rain was forecast for the afternoon of the party but a few small drops later the sun came out and well and truly shone down for the remainder of the celebration. Below I bring you a happy selection of photos from the day that document some of the incidentals and ideas we had to make the garden party theme stand out. I’ll include links at the bottom to some of the templates/printables I used. A DIY theme was present throughout and really added to the laid back ambience we were after. From a home made hog roast and a welcome table of Pimms to hay bale seating, a photo booth and lots of garden games a wonderful afternoon really was had by all and most importantly, the Birthday Boy had the perfect day he deserves. Cheers to 30 years!
