"From the most spectacular cake - to the gift of 100 oak trees grown from acorns off the old tree that's been gracing my driveway for centuries, it was a real celebration," continued the Grammy winner, who also shared photos of the budding plants and decorations from the big day.

He concluded, "Thank-you from the bottom of my heart to all the friends and fans who sent flowers and beautiful messages."

Furnish also shared a sweet post to the social media platform, including photos of John onstage and at home. "Happy Birthday to an amazing husband, father, artiste, philanthropist and best friend," wrote the Canadian filmmaker.
