Yesterday, 5 daughters, 5 sons-in-law and 14 grandchildren gathered together to celebrate my mum’s 70th birthday. And what a celebration it was! We enjoyed sensational food and wine in a gorgeous setting, vibrant and animated conversation (a staple of Fox family functions) and we toasted to a fine lady, loving and selfless mum, and all-round remarkable woman. If you want to read about why she’s so special, you can read about her here.
My sister set the scene for celebrating beautifully at her home.
A sit down lunch for 15 adults and 14 grandchildren (youngest party guest just turned one!)
There was plenty to eat….
Including my fruit tarts filled with creme patissiere and topped with fresh fruit
And a birthday cake for the birthday girl
All the grandchildren placed a candle in the cake each in order of eldest to youngest…
My sister made this giant card for all the grandchildren to sign or scribble….
The day was a smashing success and included the elements of what life is all about! Cheers to mum’s 70 years…may there be many more fabulous years to come!
