My friend Carole was 70 this week, so her daughter-in-law Rachel masterminded a surprise party. Bob and I got to the Church Hall early this afternoon and set up decorations, a buffet table, and an alcohol-free cocktail bar.
Her grandson Matthew was in charge of music
Friends Hannah and Grace were my assistant barmaids
The cake was splendid
Carole enjoyed herself
[as did everyone else]
The cocktails were greatly appreciated
And my young helpers worked incredibly hard
Once the party got going, I was too busy to take pictures – but the Hall was crowded with friends and relations celebrating with Carole.
I hope she enjoyed the evening as much as I did!
