Carole wrote in her Party Pieces newsletter that the event will feature lots of ‘bright and bold’ colours.

Is it just me or has January flown by? Which means it is nearly my birthday. I often go away on holiday for my birthday, but this year I am bringing the sunshine to me by throwing a party featuring lots of bright and bold colours.

“If you’ve got a birthday coming up soon, take a look at my edit for inspiration.”
