DSD booked afternoon tea but not paid

So it's my birthday on Saturday. DSD and her DH have booked me and DH in for posh afternoon tea on the Sunday afternoon at top restaurant.
I thanked her tonight for such a thoughtful gift etc and asked her to clarify time and is there a reference number for the gift etc
She gave me a photo of the reservation booking and said it's all booked under my name and have a wonderful time I just have to pay on the day
So the gift is she reserved a table. This is so like her. She genuinely thinks she's given me a gift. I gently asked again, to be clear, I pay on the day and yes, that way I can have whatever I want.
I'm just flabbergasted.
AIBU (clearly fucking not but feel free to comment if you disagree)
Oh, and I'm going to go as I do like the place and you do have to book well in advance but never heard that making a reservation is the gift!!!!

Wow! DH is going out for lunch to a fancy restaurant with his DM to celebrate her birthday tomorrow. He has sorted this out as his birthday gift to her. There is no way he would expect her to pay for her meal.
How can she think the reservation is a gift?
