I was in early labour for four days before Frida was born, so it makes sense that we should be celebrating her birthday over the course of a week!
To kick things off we threw an afternoon tea for a few family members. I baked a haphazard lemon cake, which went wrong in many different ways because I refuse to consult recipes, and assembled a few decorations; some flower garlands, a banner, and photos of Frida when she was tiny as place settings.
We all squashed around our too-small table and drank tea, and champagne from paper cups.It was such a lovely afternoon and Frida was thoroughly spoilt by her family. I feel so lucky that Frida is surrounded by a wonderful family who love her.
