What to write in a Milestone Birthday card

We always want to think up fun, meaningful messages for the birthday cards of friends and family, but especially so when it comes to milestone celebrations. We’ve popped our paper party hats on at Maison Papier, put our heads together and drafted some lovely lines to help you honour the mini, mid-life and more mature landmark years of loved ones.
