The Queens Diamond Jubilee Party
|The home brew!|
|Our little British brick BBQ!|
The theme is ridiculously easy - red, white and blue napkins, straws, cake and, of course, ridiculous amounts of bunting. We tied photo frames of pictures of the queen onto the trees with string, made up jugs of Pimms, a home brew and a few local beers, BBQ'd British burgers and asked everyone to bring something British along. Easy-peasy to host and its always fun to see what people will bring... we had an amazing mix of mini roast dinners in yorkshire puddings, union jack pizza, egg sandwiches, strawberries and cream, scones, strawberry vodka jellies, chocolate guinness cake, Coronation chicken, red white and blue cake pops, eaton mess... what an amazing country we are! Joel built a mini climbing wall onto the side of some old shed panels, put up a slack line between 2 trees and these kept the kids busy at the opposite side of the garden to the BBQ and fire. We made an extensive playlist on spotify of all our fave old British bands...what could be a better excuse for some Elastica, Carter USM, Pet Shop Boys, Blur and East 17?!
