Getting everything together had been a little more challenging then she had anticipated. She'd checked into a hotel after her Saturday shift, having dropped Olivia off with Katie for overnight slumber party/give mommy time to organize. There was so much. She'd even got a company to help. She really wanted to make her daughter's birthday special. Everything was decked out in blue and gold. Blue because it was Olivia's favorite color and gold because it was a little more masculine to accommodate Neville. There were lots of tables and streamers that were tossing about in the ocean wind. She'd finished the cake the night before, along with about 50 cupcakes that would be more for the guests. The cake portion was for Neville and Olivia.
She had help from several of the local vendors, including the nice old lady from the tea shop in helping get everything set up. There were cookies and sandwiches and salads, along with several coolers full of drinks and food that she hoped the men would take care of when they arrived. She knew that Olivia was coming with Katie, having left her with her special birthday outfit. Hannah made sure that she had the girl's swimming suit for swimming too. There were presents to deal with and tables and chairs. She hoped that people actually came. She would be a little disappointed if they didn't, but she wouldn't necessarily blame them, afterall, it was the day of the Quidditch World Cup Semi-final. Though as if God had ordained it, it was perfect weather and the beach wasn't very crowded at all.
