Product Details

Now you know. A checklist for a Happy 60th Wedding Anniversary Tea-Party.

The only thing that wasn't included in the planning is for my mother to have to go into hospital at the weekend. She's come down with a chest infection and at the moment has difficulty in swallowing. I didn't mention it earlier blog posts, as all the invitations and arrangements had been done, and we weren't sure what to do about the party. Well, sadly, my mother is not going to be well enough to come, but we have decided to go ahead with the party anyway. Some of the very close relatives (sister, niece) have travelled a long, long way get here, and will take the opportunity to visit her in hospital. The rest of us will all drink to her speedy recovery, and celebrate the Anniversary.
