We love visiting our venues in Somerset! Yesterday we visited Hornsbury Mill :-)

The drive over from West Devon is gorgeous and on a bright sunny day, there’s nothing better than travelling along the A30 through all that stunning scenery on a peaceful Sunday afternoon with the anticipation of a party! And not just any old party, but a cream tea surprise party for the fabulous Norma!!

Afternoon tea with a plain scone, clotted Cornish cream and strawberry jam

Nothing like a mouth watering cream tea!!

The location of the big surprise party was the stunning water mill at Chard – Hornsbury Mill.

For months and months, Norma’s daughters, Caz and Ally, have been keeping a secret from their mum. And speaking as someone who has organised a surprise party for my better half Laurence, it is not easy!!! Especially if the person you want to spring the surprise on is naturally very inquisitive as was Norma – but they pulled it off!

Yesterday afternoon, 150 souls were concealed within the water mill awaiting the first sighting of Norma! When she appeared, ooh she looked pretty stunned – especially seeing a packed room full of friends old and new when she was actually expecting a small gathering of family for a cream tea!

Surprise!!!

Norma loved her surprise! And she loved her Yellowbooth photo booth (actually, it was white :-)) as did her friends and family – as most dressed up to the nines in fancy dress bits and bobs and ducked into the booth with speed and efficiency! The second set of photos were glued (by my good self!) into Norma’s special guestbook.

Psst! I wonder if Norma will recognize her husband…

Hello Sailor!

What a lovely afternoon! We met some fantastic people and enjoyed meeting Norma and her fab secret keeping daughters, some peacocks and the friendly hospitality team at Hornsbury Mill. And we finished work whilst it was still light – in the photo booth world – that doesn’t happen very often!!
