Street Party

For the past week I have been a little panicked/stressed, one of those ideas that float in my head popped out resulting in me co-organising a street party to celebrate the wedding of Prince William & Katherine Middleton. There were times this week that I thought I had bitten off more than I could chew, that it would never come together, but today I was proved wrong. I think that the whole day baking yesterday helped to de-stress me, I made fifty five fairy cakes and two victoria sponges. If it all ending up being a disaster at least we would have cake to eat : )

We started at 9:30 this morning putting up bunting and collecting tables and chairs from our local parish halls. We had bunting reaching to all of the houses, the photo below was taken half way through the process and yes that is me!
So at 10:55 we all made a mad dash home to watch the wedding and it didn't disappoint. The bride looked amazing, that dress was gorgeous! I loved the trees in the abbey. I loved all the pomp and ceremony, all of the horses, the carriages, the uniforms. I could gush and gush, but we had a street party to attend.
Everybody had put in so much effort, all our neighbours brought food and drink. Some even BBQed! We had set up a craft table for the children and one of the ladies even did face painting.
I had an amazing day, it turned out so well. It was really lovely seeing all of our neighbours band together and secretly I am very proud of myself.

Tomorrow I am again cake baking, this time for Ella's birthday party on sunday. I have finally finished my fimo characters and my lovely husband who has been running errands for me all week went and got the turquoise icing. So hears to another party, oh and congratulations William and Katherine.

  1. How lovely to have a street party. It brings the community together and yours looked great fun. It was a good day and I agree, the wedding was a wonderful occasion.
