our jubilee

i dressed as the queen did in the 70's for work

i walked home waving to everyone (including the mayor) and had a very favourable response from one's subjects

lottie made a union jack pillowcase

we decorated

the celebration tree had red roses, red telephone boxes, red double decker buses, red postboxes and union jacks

we hired a jubilee kitty for the day

and a matching puppy

my mum unearthed this!

ellie made a wreath for the front door

mummy made regal bunting from 2 samples of wallpaper

and we had a fabulous tea party with:
mini fruit scones, grandma's jam and clotted cream, lottie's white chocolate and raspberry cupcakes, sausage rolls, crisps, jam tarts, english cheeses board and crackers, dolly mixtures and jelly babies and a jubilee trifle with strawberries in jelly, custard, cream and blueberries/raspberries on top washed down with lashings of tea in vintage cups and saucers

we played 'guess the baby'
we played 'queeny quiz'
we played 'best national anthem'
we all made crowns
we had a swapshop

and we all had champagne to toast queeny
'god save the queen,god save the queen,  god save the queen'

what did you do?
