Long Live the Queen.

I made cupcakes...


with red, white and blue icing, of course!


I made a red, white and blue trifle... although blueberries are not really that blue!


And I made us some matching crowns so that we could feel like royalty for a day!


It was a fantastic village picnic despite the blustery cold weather. There was live music, games, a parade of crowns, food and drink and best of all lots of laughter with friends... not forgetting a toast to our wonderful Queen. A day to be proud to be British.

  1. I dare say a lot of red and blue food colouring has been used over the weekend. :)
    So glad you had a lovely time, it has been a great long weekend!

  2. Brilliant crowns! I wonder how many cupcakes were made and eaten over the whole of GB in the last weekend?! Our local supermarket couldn't keep up with the demand for icing sugar!

  6. Amen to that Gina! Your festive food looks marvellous and no doubt tasted the same. I love the crowns and hope the Queen is not exhausted by all the relentless celebrations.

  8. Royalty for a day, eh? I hope one's Duke of Edinburgh didn't pick up any nasty infections during the tour of the playing fields...
