Gorgeously Girly ways to celebrate with the Queen

The Diamond Jubilee is upon us and the nation has decorated itself in red, white and blue!

We thought we'd ask some of our staff to share how they'd celebrate the Jubilee with their gorgeous girls - daughters, sisters, nieces...

Clare Sheen, (Sales) suggested: 
   - A bit of baking, of course!   
     - Duck racing  
     - Make a crown for their jubilee party
     - Fancy dress
     - Face Painting

   Anna Porter-Wright, (E-Commerce) came up with:
     - Do 'Miss United Kingdom' nails - Paint a union jack on every nail!
- Dust golden glitter across cheeks and forehead for a touch of essential regal glitz
- Play Queenie and write a speech together about what you intend to do for the rest of the  summer
- Get Daddy to teach her to Waltz - essential knowledge for all princesses in training.
- Pour fresh orange juice and lemonade in wine glasses for instant child friendly Bucks Fizz!
- Play potato Hula Hoop royal ring stacking. The first one to sneak a nibble is out!
   Jane Clucas, (Press & PR) suggests:
- Make some paper doily bunting to decorate your Jubilee party [pic attached]
- Make some REAL lemonade, there's nothing quite like it, all you need are lemons, sugar and water: delicious!
  • 3 unwaxed lemons , roughly chopped
  • 140g caster sugar
  • 1l cold water
  1. Tip the lemons, sugar and half the water into a food processor and blend until the lemon is finely chopped.
  2. Pour the mixture into a sieve over a bowl, then press through as much juice as you can. Top up with the remaining water and serve with plain ice or frozen with slices of lemon and lime.
- Sing Land of Hope and Glory at the top of your voices whilst waving a Union Jack!

   Louisa Riggs, (our Admin Angel!) adds:
   - Make cupcakes and decorate in red white and blue icing or with a crown on, or make crown shaped biscuits

   And why not take a look at our 'Jubilee Inspiration' Pinterest board? We've added our favourite pins from the recent competition entries - there are plenty of great ideas, 'how-to' pins and tutorials on there too, so enjoy your Jubilee!

  1. My touchstone on this subject continues to be Irene Gallo's collected remarks about what art directors look for in a portfolio site. She stipulated the most important features as being the ability to save to or drag to the desktop right from the full image, and full-image previews. This solution only misses the latter.


We love to hear from you... drop us a line...
