Our Royal Wedding Do

30 Apr

Yesterday we had some family members round for brunch. It was a lovely day and we all ate and drank far too much.

I made goodie bags for our guests, complete with commemorative chocolate bars and replicas of Kate’s engagement ring:

I made smoked salmon quiche with goat’s cheese and dill,  mini cheese scones, Ina Garten’s sticky cinnamon buns, sausage rolls and fruit salad. And we drank Bloody Marys, using Nigel Slater’s amazing recipe.

We all watched the wedding which was gorgeous from start to finish. What a happy day. And it was a nice for the rest of the world to see how well we do pomp and pageantry!

After the wedding, we lounged in the sun in the garden with a few special guests.

After multiple glasses of Pimm’s and a good old basic barbecue, we set off fireworks and floating lanterns. It was lovely to hear fireworks going off all around us from all over the village.

Congratulations to the happy couple, and thank you for giving us such a joyous day of celebration!

    What a lovely party – my royal wedding experience involved mugs of tea, toast (and bits of cake) and running commentary (snarky from the boys/men, nosy from the rest of us). I’m impressed by your skills and creativity – and from the lovely photos.

    I love reading how you celebrated it – it was a great day, wasn’t it?! I’ve just tried Pimms a few times – I don’t think the verdict is out yet. I’m really interested in those floating lanterns – they look so cool that I’ve almost bought them a few times XOL
