It was a privilege to be invited to Lisa(TQO)’s beautifully elegant Roses and Pearl Themed 60th Birthday on the Saturday after we had celebrated a Blue Themed 60th for her at the Memory Shed. In my previous post Blue Drizzle Cake for Lisa(TQO) I added a tribute to Lisa The (not so) Quiet One just because she is such a special friend. These cakepops made by Gail Freer of Popcakes, onto which I popped a handmade sugar paste rose, were the perfect addition to a beautiful function with exquisite food, pretty table settings and surrounds and of course much laughter and chatter among all Lisa’s family and friends. All these brilliant photos are courtesy of Debbie and Ruth CD Photography.
Lisa (TQO)’s attention to detail was superb and all her careful planning was put into action on a beautiful clear wintery day. All her family helped set up with loads of laughs and the smiles continued into heartfelt speeches, fun group photographs and of course the usual basket of tricks that Lisa always brings to any party.
Tiny chalkboard names personalised each guest’s table setting and the most wonderful surprise of all was the handmade gift bag Lisa had thoughtfully made for each person filled with handmade goodies and gifts. I had to include a picture of mine with my colourful embroidered cupcake bag & all its contents! Of course the fun extended into the taking of selfies and I had to include Michelle here just because I love her too!
Thank you Debbie and Ruth for capturing our surprise at our gifts from Lisa, also the 3 Musketeers in stitches of laughter during Dave’s speech and our wonderful group of scrapbooking friends. Memories like these will last a lifetime.
True to Lisa’s wonderful nature, she did not forget an order from me for a pretty Lace Rose Cake for a friend who shared her birthday on the day of her 60th and Rose Swirled Cupcakes to surprise her family with for their afternoon tea.
Once again Lisa, it is a joy and a privilege to have you in my life!
