My boyfriendâ€™s dad turned 60 last week, and yesterday, he invited about 40 friends and family to an elegent birthday party in their lovely back yard. They live in a Copenhagen suburb, and their garden goes out towards green fields, woods, and a lake. Itâ€™s quiet and idyllic, and a perfect setting for a Danish garden party. The weather was incredible, too, it was almost too hot to be in Â the sun for too long, but when we sat down in the white tents for an early dinner, we enjoyed a soft breeze that took the heat off. The setting was held in navy and white, very elegant and also very typical for Denmark (see for example the Royal Copenhagen porcelain). We enjoyed a glass of champage and amazing food from a local restaurant, which I absolutely have to visit at some point! And in the end, there was a classic birthday layer cake (“lagkage”), of course! It was a lovely day that lasted long into the evening, after the almost full moon had risen in a clear sky. Here are some pictures I took of this lovely and elegant affair - though Iâ€™m keeping out photos of guests, as I donâ€™t know whether theyâ€™d want to be shown.
Have a great Sunday!
