Jubilee Jollies

2012 really is a great year to be British! Not only do we have the Olympics this Summer, but it is also our grand old Queen’s Diamond Jubilee; a remarkable achievement with only Queen Victoria as a fellow monarch to reach such Jubilee heights. The Jubilee weekend will stretch from the 2nd to the 5th of June, and is sure to be packed full of celebrations and events all across Grand ol’ Blighty; street parties and pic-nic’s galore!

With the recent gloomy Spring it’s a great time to look ahead and start planning your Jubilee celebrations. Think red, blue and white. Think crowns, corgies, champers and yummy treats; cucumber sandwiches (no crusts) and scones! To help you get started here is a selection of beautiful Jubilee party themed products…
