With the recent spate of 50th Birthday celebrations, I thought it was about time I started planning mine. I know it’s over a year away, but I wanted to make sure we had a suitable venue if no more.
Our plan to return to Wivenhoe House where we had my 40th was scuppered by the fact that they are now primarily a wedding venue and won’t book another type of party until a couple of months before the event if they have availability. With potential overseas visitors we wanted to get a date in the diary and need somewhere with accommodation either onsite or close by. We’ve settled on the Five Lakes venue. It’s a little further from home than we would have liked, but they were more than happy to accommodate us and extremely helpful. That’s one less thing to worry about 🙂
