Summer Garden Party

Feeling inspired by the Royal wedding? Here we show you how to create your own ‘Best of British’ summer garden party.

Pippa Jameson Interiors teamed up with Jemma from Jemma Watts Photography and Kate from Pat-a-cake-Pat-a-cake to create a truly magical garden party extravaganza! We were keen not to go too overboard with the patriotic accessories and so we have a subtle mix of Royal wedding memorabilia teamed with elegant tableware.

Our gorgeous cakes were made by the very talented Pat-a-cake-Pat-a-cake, who followed the theme brilliantly with all our favourite British inspired cakes. We had a Victoria Sponge, meringue nests full of juicy strawberries and raspberries, and of course good old scones with clotted cream and lashings of jam. Not only did they look incredible but they also tasted absolutely divine! Why not take some inspiration from our cupcakes by sticking some little union jacks in your own creations…
