|I had Jane Austen themed birthday celebrations this year. Lots of costuming, dancing (well only my enthusiastic little son was keen to dance with me and neither of us had much grace or talent but we had fun) and cake.
|Family portrait Regency style.
|A Lydia the pug inspired cake. (Chocolate cake with salted caramel frosting)
|The dog captured the spirit of Lydia by gazing at the cakes on the table all through the tea party!
|My son and I got right into the Austen spirit.
