Looking back: Royal celebrations

E and B prepare for the Jubilee picnic

Today the Queen attended a special service at Westminster Abbey to mark 60 years since her coronation

Reminding us of this time last year when we were gearing up for our garden party, to celebrate the Diamond Jubilee of her ascension to the throne

We had a really wonderful day – with lots of food, drink, good company and – luckily – sunshine!

If you’re in the mood for a very British celebration, here’s some ideas from this time last year…

All this nostalgia has got is in the mood for another summery garden party…

We’ve got our planning hats on…!

    That skirt in the top picture is lovely. If I had my way I’d wear high waisted flower skirts every day!

      Me too! Unfortunately we don’t always have the weather. I picked it up in a vintage shop, along with another in the same style but with different colours – this is my favourite though!
