I wasn't organised enough to get decorations out this year but instead we celebrated my Grandma's 91st birthday. After lunch we had a four generation tea party. My grandma, mum and I drank from my Shinzi Katoh tea set, and the little one sat with her teddy bear and they played with her pink tin tea set.
