Angela, who’s incredibly creative, decorated all the paper napkins with flowers and ‘Book Club 10th Birthday’.  She also did the little flower arrangements and scattered names of books we’ve read over the cloth.  It all looked amazing.

I can’t help feeling this picture would be improved if there was something in the glass…  Each place setting had a different book cover.

We had cake and balloons too.  It was a great party.
