Beautiful Cheer: Birthdays Made Easy

I love a birthday - anyone's because it's a day to make them feel amazing and special.

My favourite 4 things that can make a birthday special: 

1. Time. Just 'being' and sharing the day or a moment with the birthday person.- truly magical.

2. Special location. Having or taking someone to a beautiful place in nature is incredible for making one feel special. It's to remember the year that was and to dream into the year beginning. It does not have to be anything too fancy either. Think of somewhere to 'be' for a place to sit, walk, or just lie on a rug - maybe with a picnic. Try a beach, rain-forest, under a lone gorgeous tree, somewhere with a view, or a creek, even the backyard in the sunshine...

3. A candle to blow out. So, so whimsical, pretty, and full of happy wishes. It could be on its own, in a big cake or piece of cake, slice, ice-cream, a gift or simply on it's own

4. A card filled with thoughts of why 'you' love them. Everyone deserves to know why and just how they are special to you on their day.

5. Oh, lots of kisses and hugs help too. 


  1. Happy belated to you! Looks like you had a great day.

  2. Many happy [belated] returns Elizabeth. Your girls are just adorable! I always make a cake (even for me!) and for friends, gift box a cupcake or a couple of cookies to make a wish on.


Chats with you are my fave.
