Birthday Lunch









I know you are all probably so sick of hearing about my recent birthday but I thought I'd just show you some pictures of my 30th birthday party which I had on the weekend at Peppers Spicers Peak Lodge which is located 1 hour 45 minutes drive inland from Brisbane (where I live). 25 of my closest family and friends came and spent the weekend with us at the Lodge and we had a special lunch on Saturday beginning with drinks on the lawn (each girl received a handpainted parasol to use outside for the drinks) and then a sit down lunch inside in front of the fireplace. I decorated the table in pink, yellow and white with tin buckets filled with daisies placed down the centre of the table. We all had the most wonderful and memorable weekend. I am so blessed to have such a special group of friends!! I promise I'll stop talking about my birthday now!!!

You really know how to celebrate in style. So glad your 30th birthday was a good one! I freaked out when I turned 30!
Now, I'm turning 40 but am really excited about it. I must have had an early mid-life crisis.
(Coincidentally, I just finished posting how I am celebrating, and it's not that differently from you!).

What a glorious birthday party! I don't even remember my 30th, I think I must've been in shock! Or, my memory is fading now that I am 40 and I had a great day. Not sure which. :-)

Glad you had such a wonderful day and blogged about it so you won't forget it someday!

Well Anna...I guess it looks okay. I mean, if you're into stunning table settings that are simple/elegant/gorgeous, spectacular settings, good friends, and hand-painted parasols! Looks like an INCREDIBLE time! Talk about your birthday all you want! (Happy belated...by the way.) :)

Anna, the daisies really worked! Perfect in those buckets. The yellow-and-white just look so crisp, and I love the parsols.

I know I'm really late, but I just had to comment on how lovely you decorated the table for your 30th Birthday! It's so soft and sweet looking. And your weekend sounds like it was spectacular.

Happy Belated!
