As many of you know, last Thursday I celebrated my 50th birthday, and on Saturday night we continued the celebrations with a family dinner in a private dining room at a local hotel.
My gorgeous daughter Sheree took care of all of the arrangements, and my husband took care of the bill. ( Ha ha ) All I had to do was turn up, I did however get to select the menu and wines. Here is the room all set up, the staff did an amazing job.
Sheree ordered the cake from a local lady and all I can say is wow, it is so me. Didn't she do a fabulous job. Everything was edible, except of course the pins that are in the pin cushion. The cake was chocolate and served with raspberry coulis and cream.
One of my birthday gifts (from DH) was this gorgeous dress made by Adelaide designer Liza Emmanuel. It is a navy satin and I noticed on the label that the dress was made in Australia.
The dinner was family only, and I decided on a private room so all of my seven grandchildren could come and we would not upset other diners. The only exception to this was by best friend Deb, and her husband Peter.
Here is Leo ( in yellow) and Jack having a sneaky taste of the cake.
And here is my beautiful girl Sheree.
It was a lovely evening and everyone had a good time.
