Grandad's 90th

A little while ago Paul's Granddad turned 90.  There were no plans for a party so I decided that the day should not pass un-noticed and so I took it upon myself to create a little portable party to take to his house for the big day including "Happy Birthday" bunting, a home-made birthday cake, a home-made steak and ale pie and a 90 badge, all made by me.  We also took a few mini bottles of sparkling white and rose wine and I took a few of my 1940's and 1950's cds including "Hits from the Blitz", "Songs that won the war" and "lemon popsicles and strawberry milkshakes". We had a really lovely day and Paul's Granddad really enjoyed it, he kept saying I have never had anything like this" it was so sweet.  Here are some photos from the big day:

Notice the badge on the right? That's the one I made!

Signature bunting,

 Not bad for a first attempt at icing a cake with roll out icing,

Shame it got damaged in transit.

Enjoying a choc ice!

After the sparkling wine!

Happy 90th Granddad!
