Diamond Jubilee Party Royal knees up

The Diamond Jubilee is a perfect excuse for a right royal knees up. But there are a lot of preparation s to go with it though I am no Kirsty Allsop or Nigella Lawson I am willing to give it a go at hosting the prefect party which for me is all about having fun and creating memories which will last many generations to come. Last time it was the Silver Jubilee I was 4  *awwh factor* and when is was the golden Jubilee my own son was 3 . And now it is the Diamond Jubilee he is 13 , it was a time for a family get together. I was a rather worries about my party hosting skills and did I decorate enough or too much ! But as you will see from the pictures everyone had fun !

These photos were taken on the Saturday  then in true British tradition it rained on the Sunday so we had to have the party inside. The age range was from 6  years old to 86  ! so a true age spread it was wonder to create Jubilee memories for everyone.
Loads of Diamond Jubilee food.
