Bunting & Bubbly

I am neither royalist nor anti-royalist,
but I do LURVE a royal event
particularly a wedding.
Preparations going on here today for our Pommie street party tomorrow.

Menu includes:
chipolatas on a stick
sausage rolls
cheese and pineapple on a stick - stuck on grapefruit
cucumber sandwiches (crust cut off)
egg and cress sandwiches

Games include:
Pin the crown on Kate
Make your own crown

Dress Code:
Wedding attire or something British
I've dug out some curlers and a headscarf for Hilda Ogden

Bubbles are in the fridge ready for this evening.
We are heading down to English friends
to cook a roast with all the trimmings,
followed by a Bread & Butter Pudding.
To be consumed on the verandah whilst watching the live stream
via a projector onto the shade cloth.
All very exciting.

What are you up to.

Whatever you are doing - have a super time.

Good Luck to Will & Kate

Sounds like you have it all planned out Carmel. My evening will be a lot quieter - I will be watching from the comfort of the sofa with an excited 8 year old and possibly a grizzly husband because he won't be able to watch the rugby!
