Diamond Jubilee Celebrations

This weekend, as The Queen celebrated her Diamond Jubilee
Britons up and down the country hung out the bunting and united in celebration.

Thousands of street parties took place, filling the nation with a sense of patriotism, nostalgia and community spirit.
They were very much reminiscent of the street parties held for The Queen's coronation in 1953
The Queen's Silver Jubilee in 1977
and The Queen's Golden Jubilee in 2002.
To celebrate the Diamond Jubilee, we joined in the celebrations at a street party in our local village
 with the historic Coity castle as our backdrop.
It was a fun filled day of cucumber sandwiches, cream scones and tug-of-war in the castle grounds...and we even came home with a delicious Diamond Jubilee cake from the raffle!
The day was finished off watching the Diamond Jubilee concert at Buckingham Palace on TV with a good old cup of tea (and a delicious piece of cake!).

Hope you enjoyed your Diamond Jubilee weekend.

  1. Glad to know about the diamond jubilee celebrations. My friend saw many of the lavish Venues in San Francisco online and booked one for her first anniversary last month. Decorations were really unique and food arrangements were also presentable. Loved the red velvet couple cake.
